Hello,

Windows 8 is still new and there are some companies like D-Link which might not have the firmware for their products which are compatible with Windows 8 yet. I tried searching for a firmware for your product and I can't find one.

I suggest that you contact D-Link regarding this issue, they should have the fix for this and I'm sure that a lot of people are experiencing this same issue. This happens when new operating system are produced in the market. http://www.dlink.com.au/corporate/contact/

I also suggest that you install RadarSync in your computer. It's a technician's software. What it does is it automatically updates all outdated drivers in your computer. It works great with Windows 7 and Windows 8.

I hope this helps!

Carlo

How to use D-Link DPR-2000 with OSX


Its a 4 port printer server. You can connect up to 4 printers to the system and then everyone who has wireless connection with the server can use any of the connected printers.
The system should be easy to install and can be used with windows and OSX.
I wonder why someone should buy a printer server if he / she does not know how it works.
In OSX you you have to use the IPP and Dlink offers their special Click and Connect software.
Read the manual and it will work.

Is it compatible with windows 7?


The latest firmware for this print server only support Windows Vista and below , sorry to say that as of now it will not work with Windows 7. If Dlink releases a new firmware to make this unit with Windows 7 just need to update the firmware and you can use it for Windows 7 computers.

Once the install is complete go to the Devices and Printers screen and click on the new printer.
Click Customize your Printer, change the name if you prefer and then on the ports tab. Mine is
set to Protocol "Raw", Port Number 9100, Community Name "public". The only other thing I may be
doing differently is that I have set the printer to auto-show the print preview before printing.
Yes, its an additional click but it seemed to have made all the difference in my case. It also
gives you the chance to correct something like printing a second page with just a header URL, etc.

I realize that time is a luxury and not everyone has a lot of it, especially for trivial tasks
like addressing antiquated equipment compatibility issues after an upgrade, but I firmly believe
if you say can't enough, you WON'T. But for those who enjoy a challenge occasionally I hope this
points you in the right direction. Good luck

Windows 7 compatibility forthe DPR 1260


My DPR-1260 arrived yesterday and I set it up easily in minutes on both Windows 7 (32-bit Pro) and XP SP3 with 3 printers attached. So far I have only tried wired connection. Wi-fi may be more problematical.
Printers are Brother HL-2040, HL-2140 and Samsung CLP-300. Could not get it to recognize my Canon Lide 25 scanner
