    Hello. I have nearly the same problem... I have changed the print server's IP adress a long time ago and I don't remember what I choose. Therefore I cannot connect to the server anymore. Would anyone have a solution to this ? Thanks a lot !

My home network uses WPA security. How can I use my D-Link DP-311P print server? It seems to support WEP but not WPA.

This is a very old 802.11b only print server (made in 2003, discontinued in 2006), and only supports WEP It also runs the slower 802.11b protocol (11mbps) and will tend to slow down your whole wireless network if you use it. You are much better off replacing it with a more modern print server.

If you insist on using it, you will have to switch your wireless network to use WEP instead of WPA.

Hello. I have a new Windows 7 machine and cannot figure out how to connect the dp-311p print server to it. The old directions for Windows XP don't seem to work. Help, please?

The wireless printer is somewhere on your "local network".

Access "Control Panel", and access "Printers".
Click "Add Networked Printer", and "browse" your local network to locate the print-server.

Tell us any error-messages that you get, if any.

Hello, we have a D-Link DP-311P Wireless and have had it for several years - we can not remember the password - is there some way that we can reset please

The default password is SYSxxxx, where the xxxx is equal to the final 4 digits of the MAC Address

The default password could also be SYSADMIN.

If neither works, then the print server will have to be sent to D-Link to be reset. Please contact D-Link's RMA department at 800-326-1688 M-F 7AM - 6pm Pacific time about how to send it to them.

Is it possible to get a DP-311P print server to work with an Epson AL-C900 laser printer?

It should if your printer has parallel port in the back. Follow the instructions manual, connect print server to the parallel port and then to the network. Get the manual here:

Does this DP-311P print serverwork with a wireless

I ready all about your device here:

And I do not show that 802.1.5.1 which is Bluetooth. They do have a small section but it just states the range of Bluetooth.

The best way to do it, turn on your laptop/device and have it start searching. If it does not show up on the list, then more than likely it does not support it.

Have a great day.

D-Link DP-300U Print Server Problem:

So... you've messed up the IP address on your DP-300U and now you can't even access the web browser configuration page? Yes, it's happened to the best of us. Although I'm sure there are more elegant solutions, one fix is to reset the server to its factory settings and then reconfigure it from scratch. Given that there is no reset button on the DP-300U, resetting can be frustrating, especially if it's asking you for a password that you never created in the first place! Here's what you can do...

1) Install the psadmin software which came with the print server. If you lost the software, you should be able to find it on the web somewhere.
2) Start the software. It should automatically locate your print server.
3) Click on "factory reset". If it demands a password, and you don't know it, try "SYSxxxx" (where xxxx is the last four digits of the MAC address written on the underside of your server)
4) Dust off your Quick Install Guide and go through the unintuitive configuration process. If you no longer have your Quick Install Guide you can find it on D-Link's website.

Good luck!

DP-301P+ configure problem

Technically, it does not "connect" to the computer it connects to the printer. The computer prints via IP to the device. First thing is find the IP it sits on. Use the disk with PSADMIN utility on it and install to the PC. Use the utility to discover and then configure the print server. DON'T lose your password...there is no firmware reset on this model. Add a Standard Ip port in windows printing and you should be good to go.
