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.
Have you plugged this into your computer with an ethernet cable, you need to use a cable when you set it up, after you have completed the setup, you should be able to connect through the browser wirelessly
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.
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.
