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.)

Good luck!

How to change the ip address of a hp jetdirect 170X


Hi,

The manual is located here, and it recommends the following procedure, which starts on page 18.

Connect the Jetdirect box to the printer and the network and power on.
Press the Test button on the back of the Jetdirect box to print a configuration page.

The configuration page should show the IP address of the Jetdirect box.

If this is an IP address in the normal range of your network, ie the first three numbers of the Jetdirect box's IP address and your computer's IP address is the same (such as 192.168.0.) then simply type the IP address into your computers internet browser and you can reach the configuration page. The steps on page 58 detail the user interface for the web login.

If the Jetdirect box does not get an IP address withing 2 minutes of it booting up, it assigns itself an IP address of 192.0.0.192, and you can connect to it over the network if you change your own network settings to 192.0.0. and a number from 1-254 (but not 192).

Tip

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


INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER
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 192.168.0.xxx 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 255.255.255.0
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.

How i know the IP address assgined to the print server? once this how can I change it?


According to this site http://www.argecy.com/xtnd100s.html it it supports the use of HP's JetAdmin/Web JetAdmin utility which will allow you to configure the IP address as well as other features.

"Features such as full support for HP JetAdmin/Web JetAdmin"


Utility located here:
http://h20338.www2.hp.com/Hpsub/cache/332262-0-0-225-121.html


That same site also has this information about the ExtendView utility which may help you as well.

TROY LAN Administration Tools
  • ExtendView - 32-bit utility allowing most versatility and functionality available in network printing. Ability to view and configure print servers from unlimited number of views and quick and easy Windows IP address assignment are 2 key benefits. Features such as bulk configuration allow configuration changes for multiple print servers with simple steps. Save and restore feature allows a standard configuration to be saved and later recalled to restore same configuration
  • WebView - web based configuration tool allows complete status and configuration changes simply by typing the print server's IP address into a standard web browser
  • NetworkAlert - specialized Windows printer error utility providing proactive notification of printer problems through the use of SNMP traps
  • ExtendNet Connect - serverless (peer-to-peer) printing for Windows 95/98. Excellent tool for small businesses and remote offices
  • ExtendNet Connect NT - performance enhanced port monitor helps to improve the speed of data flow to the printer

7. Press ENTER or SELECT.
8. Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* appears.
9. Press the PLUS button. BOOTP=NO will appear.
o When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP=YES*.
o The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect.
o No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
10. Press ENTER or SELECT.
11. Press ITEM. IP BYTE 1 = (value) will appear.
12.Press the PLUS button until the value of the first byte of the IPaddress appears on the control-panel display. By pressing SHIFT and thePLUS button, the value will decrease.
13. Press ENTER or SELECT.
14. Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address.
15.Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=),syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=),and timeout (TIMEOUT=).
16. Press ONLINE. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings.
17. If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.

Your print server has to have its own IP address. If you have your computer as 198.168.1.1 then your print server would be 198.168.1.2.

Need to install network printer to DLink Router


It has been a few months, so you probably have resolved this -- but just in case someone else is looking to find out the IP address on the internal print server of an HP Laserjet 4000n printer so they can set it up on their network, here are the steps to find the IP address on the HP JetDirect internal print server:

1. Have the Ethernet cable plugged in to the router and the JetDirect 600n card and power it on.
2. Make sure display screen on printer says "Ready".
3. Press the Menu button on the printer until you see Information Menu.
4, Press the Item button on the right (+) side until you see Print Configuration page.
5. Press the Select button and a configuration page should print.

One page is the printer's configuration and the other page is the print server configuration page. If you have a good JetDirect card, and good connection to your router, the IP address of the printer, plus its subnet mask and default gateway should be shown on the EIO configuration page.

If the printer has been manually set with a static IP address, subnet mask and default gateway that will not work on your network, you will see the settings will indicate "Configured by" User Specified.

To clear those settings and allow DHCP setting, perform a cold reset on the JetDirect card, by powering off the printer, holding down the green "Go" button and powering it back on until you see "COLD RESET," let go of the green Go button, wait a couple of minutes, then run another configuration page to see the freshly assigned DHCP address of the print server.

Hope this helps someone.

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.

Emulex NetQue Pro2 Print Server how do I connect to it


Your DHCP server will keep track of which MAC Addresses have been given what IP addresses. From there, find the IP address of your Print Server. Ping the IP address to confirm IP connectivity between your computer and the print server. You should then be able to upgrade the firmware.
