Connecting to DPR1260 Print Server Manually

Hi i recently purchased the above print server and i have to printers that i wished to connect. Both canon one is a MP600 and the other a LBP5100. The MP600 connects perfectly because it is part of the standard printers that are accepted by the print server. The LBP5100 shows that it has connect to the print server in status, but is offline. When i go to install using the setup menu i fail and it throws network errors and asks to check if the printer network card is plugged in. I have also tried to configure this manually through the printer option in control panel. It still fails. please help me sort this one out.

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by D-Link (thru an independent 3rd party test facility) but it seems they may have had NetBeui installed, which is an outdated networking protocol.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"

Is the print server being assigned a IP address in your network?

SOURCE: print server configuration in canon mf4150

I had the same problem. After many hours of trial and error, I got two XP laptops and a Vista desktops configured. Be sure to use the latest firmware from Dlink. Disable all s/w firewalls. In my case Norton Firewall from Yahoo was a problem. The Vista PC was configured to print within 30 mins and the XPs took a while. I couldn't get the print server to appear in the My Network Places A couple of the guys who left comments on the product at Newegg actually have a good solution. The solution involves setting the printers up as local printers with standard TCP/IP ports that point to the IP address or the URL ("dlink-"6_last_digits_of_MAC_ID) and USB port number 9100-9103. You can google how to set up local printers w/ TCP/IP connections with USB ports on the internet. Note the Scanner will not be recognized but at least you can print on MF4150.

Can't connect a Dlink 1260 Print server through my Linksys wireless G router


A couple of things to check for:

  • If the wireless network is encrypted on your router verify that you have the right encryption key programmed on the print server
  • You are connecting to the corret router (Verify the SSID of the network - SSID being the networks name)
  • Make sure you are in an acceptable range , not 500 feet away from the router
  • Verify that the print server has a connection to the printers connected to it
  • Try rebooting all of the equipment (router , server, printers)

Connecting this print server


Without knowing more information, I can't give you exact instructions...however, in order to make the print server truly functional, it needs a dedicated IP address. Look through the settings on the print server interface (GUI) and see if you can assign it a local IP address (192.168.xxx.xxx, depending on your LAN setup).

Once you give it a dedicated IP address, you should be able to route print jobs through it.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Adding a second printer to a d-link priter server


You need to connect the second printer to your print server then install the printer driver to your computers. If your print server has a printserver driver, run that so it will automatically find the new printer for you.

Connecting with DPR 1260


1) Signal strength to each computer might be poor (raise the DPR-1260 as high as you can afford or centralize it) 2) There are nearby wireless devices on the same channel (or adjacent channels) as yours. You might not see them, as they are neighbors or businesses, depending where the device is. 3) Wireless is very similar to Real Estate. It might be a shabby house but in the right location it's a sell. Location, Location, Location. (same as #2) 4)Make sure the device is NOT sitting on or at least 6 inches near any other electronic device, including radios, TV, cable modem, etc. As a quick fix, enter the DPR1260 configuration page and change the channel to either 1, 6 or 11, whichever gives you the best performance. Then come back here and let us know what you find. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
