Yes. In most cases you can reset your D-link DP-300 series or DP-301 series print server yourself even if you don't know the password or IP. This comes in handy in situations such as when the server has made up its own password after being connected to a new router.
Cross your fingers and try the following steps...
1) Install the psadmin software if you have not already. If you have lost the psadmin software then search for it on the web. 2) Start the psadmin software and click "factory reset". 3) If the software demands a password, try "SYSxxxx", where xxxx stands for the last four digits of the MAC address located on the underside of your server. (Example: if your MAC address were "63 XE 29 44 F2 96", then your password would be SYSF296.) 4) Click yes to confirm the reset. 5) Follow the non-intuitive instructions provided with your server to set it up again. (Note that a Quick Install Guide will likely be more useful than a manual for this step. If you have lost your Quick Install Guide then try downloading it from D-link's website, http:/www.dlink.com/default.aspx Locate your model via "product quick find" or "find your product" then click on "support resources" and look for a quick installation guide.)

Try using the psadmin software to do a factory reset. If it demands a password to do this, try using "SYSxxxx" (where xxxx stands for the last four digits of the MAC address written on the underside of the server. If you don't have the psadmin software you may be able to download it off the internet. After doing the reset you will need to follow the Quick Install Guide to set up the server. If you lost the Quick Install Guide you can download a new one from D-link's website. The following link may also be helpful: http://www.fixya.com/support/t224263-dp301p_psadmin_password_forgoten
I have no problem using Vista Home Preimum notebook that print to the NetGear PS110, and now the notebook upgrade to Windows 7 Preimum, it still works. All other computers using XP, Win 2000, all work fine with PS110. Basically, install the printer drivers to LPT1 first, then add a new local port with \\PSNNNNNN\P1, then it just work. no problem. (note that, you have to configure the PS110 using same subset ip address first.)
DP 300U's can get be pretty uncooperative when attached to a different router. One solution is to reset the DP 300U to its factory settings. Use the PS Admin software to do this. (If you lost the PS Admin software, you should be able to download it from the internet.) If the software prompts you for a password and you do not know it, try "SYSXXXX", where XXXX is the last four digits of the MAC address located on the underside of the print server.
After you reset the DP 300U you will need to set it up from scratch, a process which is not particularly intuitive. Refer to your "Quick Install Guide" (download it from D-link's web site if you don't have it anymore).
I would suggest that you set a higher Ip address then 9-10 as it is possible that your router/switch is possibly using one of these for DHCP,
I have one of these myself, I had to put mine a little uprange to prevent my router / switch from interfering with it.
Please confirgue the print server properly. Assign a particular ip address to it if possible. Then install the photocopier driver in computer and add the network port ip eual to the ip of print server.
if it does not work install the print server driver if comes with it as a printer and assign it a ip.
After several days of researching the same problem for the MF4150, the conclusion is that you have to use an Axis or Silex brand print server developed specifically for Canon. Both have been reported to provide Print/Scan/Fax multi-functionality, but it seems Silex is the one Canon really supports (it's only sold on their website) and is most likely to be the least problematic.
