Re: Printer Offline

If your problem still persists then If the printer and the printserver is on and connected to the printserver and the router respectively. Then try right clicking on the printer icon in the printers and faxes window to set it online. Try Printing. If it did not work, then right click on the printer icon again > Properties > Ports > set the proper network port. Apply the settings and try Printing.

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network...

These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP Laserjet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc.
This example is for a network HP Laserjet printer.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network).

Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to
If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer’s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

I am able to configure the print server and configure printer but not able to print

try this.

i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

DLINK DP-300U. Desktop shows printer offline, Laptop prints OK.

First thing.. plug printer directly into PC.. does it work? .. if so its is a port setting. If now it is the device config on PC

If Port Setting Issues.. are you going through any other devices on the network or is you firewall blocking the IP.

If device Config issue check to see it is setup up as an IP Port not a normal local port

I can not print when I connect to my jetdirect print server.

Hi, sorry for late answer, I have been offline for a while.

Connect RJ45 to router and parallel to computer
You need to download Software here first selecting 300x and windows version.
Then you can use the HP JetDirect Wireless Setup Wizard
to setup your printer on network.
You may also be required to install printer drivers, to do this use printer CD or download them from the Internet.

1) Ensure you've run the D-Link supplied automatic configuration wizard. 2) Also ensure you have "Netbios over TCP/IP" enabled in your network settings. 3)Ensure you turn off "Bidirectional Printing" in the Ports tab and "Enabled Advanced printing features" in the advanced tab, for testing purposes. I know the printer connectivity is officially supported by D-Link (thru an independent 3rd party test facility) but it seems they may have had NetBeui installed, which is an outdated networking protocol. Try the first 3 options I gave, if they don't work, then let me know. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

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 ( 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.
