SOURCE: Old IP address

You can reset the MarkNet X2000 to factory defaults - which includes resetting the IP address to 0.0.0.0 like this:

1. Press and hold the Test button until all four lights stay lit simultaneously, then release the Test button.
2. When #3 and #4 lights light simultaneously, press and release #1 (the Menu button).
3. When #3 lights press and release #1 (the Menu button).
4. At this point the X2000 print server has been restored to the factory default settings and should have an IP address of 0.0.0.0.

Where is the ip address on the lexmark


You can locate the printer IP address by viewing the printer network setup page. See the User's Guide on the software installation CD for more information on printing a network setup page.

Change ip address on extendnet mpx


There should be a software program that allows you to change the IP Address that came with the unit. If you don't have that, you would need to reset the unit to factory defaults (which may not be possible without the software) set the device in the same subnet as your DNS router, change the BOOTP/DHCP table with the MAC Address and new IP Address.

I cannot connect to my 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless (3crwps10075-us) Print Server 3crwps10075


Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.

Please post back and let me know if this helps!

Hi - in my three-computer, PC network environment, I just changed from a static IP to a dynamic IP situation, and can't use some of the printers. I think it's because my DP 300U print server is stuck on...


Shut down all the printers and computers.
Boot all the printers first to establishe their IP addresses.
Then turn on a computer and search the network group for what is online. All the printers should show as long as they have theit IP address.
Once their static IP is established the rest shall follow with what ever IP addresses are left. A dynamic IP setup grabs the available ip address and can conflict with a device that has that static IP if the static IP device is powered up after.

How can I connect wireless G print server to a 65bits windows vista without a problem, it just works for WIN XP


Hi, it appears that many are having problems with the WPS54G Print Server. I too have always found it hard to get pc to connect to it. My latest problem was with a Win 7, 64bit pc.

Setting up a printer with a print server is a two part configuration. First you need to configure the print server and then add a printer in your OS.

The following instructions are for a linksys wireless router and the linksys wirless print server model # WPS54G.

To set up the print server correctly go to this link.....http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?pid=80&login=1&app=search&vw=1&articleid=4142&donelr=1

Following is the instructions from the above link:
Title: Connecting the PrintServer Wirelessly to a Wireless Router Article ID: 4142 Before configuring the wireless settings of the PrintServer, make sure to know the following settings on your linksys router: SSID, and wireless security. To check the wireless settings on the linksys router, click here.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the PrintServer
The wireless settings of the PrintServer can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the PrintServer is set to a static IP on the network.

Record the Print Servers IP address you will need it later.

NOTE: Make sure the PrintServer is already working when hardwired to the linksys router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the PrintServer’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the PrintServer's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the PrintServer setup page appears, click Wireless.
Step 4:
Enter the same SSID you have on the linksys router. Make sure the Network Type is set to Infrastructure then click Save to apply your changes.
Step 5:
Click Security and look under the Security Mode field. Select the type of wireless security your router is currently using then enter the corresponding security keys.
Step 6:
Click Save to apply the settings then close the PrintServer setup page.
Step 7:
Unplug the Ethernet cable connecting the PrintServer to the linksys router. Power it off for 30 seconds then power it on.
Step 8:
Make sure the Wireless LED on the PrintServer is lit and the Ethernet LED is off to indicate that the PrintServer is in wireless mode then try to print wirelessly.

Stop if you can print at this point. If not continue. The following instructions are for Windows 7, 64 bit OS.


Once the above steps are completed open windows file explore. Click Network and you should see a "print server" listed. Click on PRINT SERVER and you will see a network icon labeled p1.

You should now be able to add a printer.

In win 7 open the add printer and click "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer", and click next. A searching for printer window pops up. It will list any network printers or print servers it see's on your network. You should see a listing titled "p1 on Print Server".

At this point you need to click "The printer that I want isn't listed. This is just below the "Select a printer" box.

Next a "Find a printer by nane or TCP/IP address" window opens. Select "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname. Click next.

Another window pops up which ask for a printer host name or IP address. Enter the IP address of your print server (the one you recorded when setting up your print server), and click next.

The next windows states the device is of unknown type. Under Device Type, make sure Standard is checked. Out to the right is a down arrow, click it and you should see many different devices displayed. Scroll until you find "Hewlet Packard Jet Direct", click on it to select it and click next.

Finally a "Install the printer Driver" window should open. Select your printer and follwing the instructions. If your printer is not listed you can click "Window Update" which will look for new printer divers. Once the printer driver is installed you should be able to print.

As you can see this in not a simple printer install. Good luck!

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server


I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at http://192.168.0.10/ user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address: 192.168.0.10
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

DEVICE STATUS OFFLINE


To solve this problem you'll need setup the printer up with LPR Protocol. Go to Devices and Printers. Right-click on the printer in question select Printer Properties. Go to the Ports tab. Find the port you've setup then click on Configure Port. In the block titled Port Name you'll need to enter the name of the Gigafast Print Server. It's normally 1P_PrintServ??????. The ?s are the last six entries of the print server's MAC address. Next, in the Printer Name or IP Address enter the assigned IP address, example (192.168.5.3). For the Protocol select LPR. LPR Settings: Queue Name: same as 1P_PrintServ??????. Lastly, check the box that says LPR Byte Counting Enabled. Now when you shutdown and restart the printer will remain online.
