DLink DP-300U Print Server

What was to take about 20 minutes has turned into 2 hours? I have configured the static i.p. address and subnet for the dlink print server. The printer(s), now I have only 1 printer on this device, have been added and given a port name. I go through and add a printer on Win. XP Pro and have tried numerous different ways to setup the printer. Upon printing a test page the properties on the printer says spooling then disappears quickly and nothing is printed? Thoughts...

Re: DLink DP-300U Print Server

What is the IP of the Print Server and the Printer itself? They have to be on a 'flat network' or the gateways of the the 'adjacent' networks have to be defined as a neighborhood.

I have Dlink DP-300U print server which has ip address of but i want to change into ip range how can do? i tried by changing the ip address of the pc to Dlink switch range but...

Ideally, you change your PC's NIC to an IP in the range of, say with mask then directly connect your NIC to the Print Server and open your browser to, from there change the IP address of the Print Server.

Hi sir how can i change ip address for Dlink printer server DP-301P+

Logon to the Print Server web configuration and begin managing the DP-301P+, simply launch the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and type dlink-xxxxxx, where xxxxxx are the last six digits of DP-301P+'s MAC address. The MAC address can be found on the bottom side of
the DP-301P+ device.


Default IP Address of DP-301P+ is set as automatically getting from DHCP server or Router with build-in DHCP server. Please note that the PC's IP Address must be in the same subnet as the print server's IP Address for the two devices to communicate. (For example, if print server's IP
Address is, with a subnet mask of, then your computer's IP Address should be 192.168.0.x, where x is a value between 1-254, excluding 10.)
For additional information, please refer to Dlink printer server DP-301P+ Product Manual

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Hp 1020 dp-300u

dont' worry about what the d-link site says. its because they haven't tested it. 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.

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server

I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address:
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

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!

D-Link DP-301U Problem

It should be fine as long as it is in the range that the router can recognize and that it doesn't conflict with another IP address used on another device. Usually on the networks I design I keep the printers on higher IP address so that they can be managed on a certain range.

Is this the wireless print server?

What specifically do you mean by PJL printer block?

Forgotted the Ip of D-Link DP 300U print server

You may use the PSAdmin software to configure your print server even if you don't know the IP address. The only requirement is that the DP-300U has to be in the same network (subnet) as your PC running PSAdmin. In the PSAdmin, you will then be able to view or change the IP address.

Here is the link to download PSAdmin:

Remember that if you also have forgotten the Admin password, you will have to ship the unit to D-Link in order to have it factory reset.

Not printing to network attached printer

I have a DLink DPR-1260, and found the configuration to be challenging too. First of all, has it ever worked? If not, you may need to check your router config to ensure that they are both on the same subnet. Typically they come set to 192.168.x.x... if the router is set to, the print server is set to, and your subnet mask is set to it'll never connect. Make sure that the router and print server are configured to the same subnet... 192.168.1.x for example... and then try it. Let us know if that doesn't resolve your issue, and we'll keep working with you.
