I have a Dlink 1260 Print server and a Linksys wireless G router and I can't get this print server to operate

    I have similar problem. The linksys WAP200E Access Point with address: and DPR-1260 D-Link with address: cannot communicate each other. However, I could find out WAP200E SSID in D-Link setup. Both devices have the same G-mode, the same WPA-TKIP and PSK. DPR-1260 can connect and work with printers when is connected by wire to the network. When disconnected from wire, DPR-1260 does not communicate with any wireless devices.

Without knowing more information, I can't give you exact instructions...however, in order to make the print server truly functional, it needs a dedicated IP address. Look through the settings on the print server interface (GUI) and see if you can assign it a local IP address (, depending on your LAN setup).

Once you give it a dedicated IP address, you should be able to route print jobs through it.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Desktop prints fine but laptop will not print going through dlink 1260 print server either wired or wireless. I should say I have a linksys router that my desktop is hardwired to, but the Dlink server is...

as no one has answered this I will give it a go .
Check or download the latest printer driver for whatever operating system the laptop is running.
Could be a dhcp server clash from the wi fi print server and the link sys router . Check there are two DCHP servers and if there are deactivate on and use the other .
check the ip addresses in use on the laptop and on the desktop and the printer. make sure subnet mask are all the same but ip addresses are unique but within the network range. eg - and subnet mask
or -
check the ip address for print server is different to the ip address for the router and make sure DCHP range does not clash with router assigned ip addresses .

Have a linksys router tring to get adlink print

Did the dlink print server come with an installation disk? If so, you probably need to run that. It will help you set up a virtual printer port that you can then choose when adding a printer. For seting up two printers, you'll have 2 different virtual printer ports. For example SCB77031_P1 and SCB77031_P2.

If you need more help, please let me know what model linksys router and dlink print server

Hi!!! How do I set up wireless printing? I have an HP1022 printer...

You should have your DSR 1260 connected via cable to your router. Open a browser. Go to http://dlink-xxxxx (xxxx=last 6 digits of your 1260's MAC address) or The DSR 1260 web config screen will open. Click on the Setup tab (top row). Then click on Wireless Setting on the left hand column menu. Select settings based on your router's setting, Typically: Wireless Setting: On; Network Name: choose from drop down, if not there, type your router name in; Wireless Mode: Infrastructure; SuperG Mode: same as your router; Security: same as your router. Then Save.

Remove the cable connection of your 1260 and your router. Then go to Status in the web config. Click on Wireless. It should now show your router details. That's it.

Can't connect a Dlink 1260 Print server through my Linksys wireless G router

A couple of things to check for:

  • If the wireless network is encrypted on your router verify that you have the right encryption key programmed on the print server
  • You are connecting to the corret router (Verify the SSID of the network - SSID being the networks name)
  • Make sure you are in an acceptable range , not 500 feet away from the router
  • Verify that the print server has a connection to the printers connected to it
  • Try rebooting all of the equipment (router , server, printers)

Problem with DPR-1260

this kind of problem occurs in dlink router sometimes & after some time router stop responding after 10 -15 min & once u reboot the router it again start work for a while. the best solution to this problem is to reset the router back to its factory defualt settings u can do this by press the reset button on the back on the router ( it looks like a small hole u have to use a pin for press that button) once u have reset the router to factory default settings just reconfig the router & i am sure it will start working fine in case u still face the same problem just contact D-link or send me the details about the problem & the physical setup of ur router & printer etc

DPR 1260 will not work at all

I had the same problem earlier. Forget that I had MAC address filters setup. You might need to add your printer server's MAC. Then it should work. Mine did. Good luck
