Hi unioncharlie,

What you've done so far is fine, next connect the printer to the d-link with a wire, and allow the d-link to recongize the printer. Once that's done, you'll need to log into the d-link and get the IP address that it's assigned the printer. Then on your laptop, add a new printer and assign a new port using an IP address port, and put in the IP number you got from d-link, and the laptop should find it. Once that's all done, you can disconnect the wire from the printer to the d-link, and everything should still see each other. If not then you've got some settings either on the d-link or the laptop wrong. That printer acts just as a pass through for IP assignment.

Good Luck,

Mark

Vista cannot connect to xp printer


It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Vista Compatibility with DI-704P


The print server software does not need to be installed in order to print to the printer attached to the 704P from Vista. I went out to D-LINK's website and there are step-by-step instructions for configuring port 192.168.0.1 and associating a printer with that port.

See the following link:
http://support.dlink.com/faq/print.asp?productid=794

These instructions are for 2000/XP but they are very similiar to what you need to do for Windows Vista. I tried it and it worked fine. It did take me several tries however, as I should have read through the steps completely first.
