Although SilverDragon was more than kind to provide a couple links, my years of experience in tweaking all TCP registry entries has not increased the speed of intra or internet communication. XP SP2 automatically sets up a very good TCP handshake with external devices. A good place for TCP modification usage would be to scale DOWN the settings to match slower or difficult connections.

Hi,

Unfortunately, you haven't provided any details as to the steps you've thus far taken. So lets start at the beginning and solve your problem step-by-step.

Step 1 Locate the Queue name, or Port name, of your printer.

Click here for instructions on locating the Queue name since you are using a DPR-1260.

Step 2 After you locate the Queue or Port name, you will want to write it down. (You can also highlight it with your cursor, and copy the info. This will allow you to paste it in to the wizard later on.)

Step 3 Click Start and then Control Panel. Locate the Printers icon. Click the Add A Printer icon.

Step 4 Click Add a Local Printer. Use this option only if you don't have a USB printer. (Windows automatically installs USB printers when you plug them in).

addprinter2.jpg

Step 5 Select Create New Port. For the port type, select standard TCP/IP Port. Click Next.

addprinter3.jpg

Step 6 Click the drop down menu for Device Type and choose TCP/IP Device.

In the Hostname or IP Address field, input the ip address of your print server. (The default address for most of D-Link's print servers is 192.168.0.10).

The PORT NAME field is purely for identification purposes. This allows you to discern the port you've created later on for configuration.

Step 7 Windows will attempt to detect the printer. Please allow a few moments for the operating system to do this.

addprinter5.jpg

Step 8 Highlight the radio button labeled Custom and press the Settings button.

addprinter6.jpg

Step 9 Click the radio button labeled LPR.

The LPR Queue Name field will now become available. Here you will need to enter the Queue or Port name that you acquired in Step 1.

Check the box labeled LPR Byte Counting Enabled. Click OK.

addprinter8.jpg

Step 10 At this point, you'll be brought back to the previous window. Click Next.

addprinter6.jpg

Step 11 Windows will now attempt to detect and install the printer driver. If Windows is unable to detect the printer and find a matching driver, you will be given the option of selecting a printer from a list of available printer drivers.

addprinter9.jpg

Step 12 In the left window you have a list of manufacturers, and on the right side you have the various models. Select the model that pertains to your printer. Click Next.

addprinter10.jpg

Step 13 Next you will be prompted to give the printer a name. You can leave the default Windows name, or you can create your own if you wish. Click Next.

addprinter11.jpg

Step 14 Once the printer successfully installs you will be given the option to print a test page. If the test prints then the print server is configured properly. Click Finish.

You should be linked up now.

All the best

Title: Setting-Up a Wired Computer to Obtain an IP Address Automatically Article ID: 4033
Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.
Checking if the Computer is Set to DHCP

Hi Sir,
I guess you chose a wrong option. This is not Chat but let me give you the instructions on how to get your prints working on both macs.

First of all check the ip address of the mac. Check it on both macs. To do that follow the instructions below.


Step 1. Click the Apple logo on the top left of the screen.
Step 2 Select "System Preferences".
Step 3. Select "Network" under the "Internet and Network" section.
Step 4 Select which connection you'd like to check in the "Show" drop-down menu. If you're hooked up via ethernet, select "Built In Ethernet". If you have a wireless network, select "AirPort".
Step 5 Select "TCP/IP" on the "Network" screen.
Step 6 View your computer's IP address on the subsequent screen displayed on your Mac.

Now you know the ip address of your mac.

Now we have to ping the ip address and have to check if there is connectivity between macs. Follow the instuction below to check that :



Step 1. On Finder in the dock.
Step 2 Click on Macintosh HD in the window.
Step 3 Click on Applications.
Step 4 Click on Utilities.
Step 5 Double-click on Network Utility.
Step 6 In the Network Utility window, click on the Ping tab.
Step 7 In the field under "Please enter the network address to ping"(enter the ip adress of other computer)
Step 8 Click the Ping button.

Try theses steps first and check if they have connection.

WINDOWS VISTA - CAN'T SET UP LAN: SOFTWARE NOT COMPATIBLE?


I don't see Vista listed in the SBG Manual, but they do list several windowS OS versions. Looking at Windows 2000 for an example, you basically need to go into the control panel and make sure TCP/IP is configured correctly.

If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is in the list of components, TCP/IP is installed. You can skip to step 10.
If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is not in the list, click Install. The Select Network Component Type window is
displayed:

In both cases, the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) needs to be selected.

If you need the steps in selecting the network component type let me know and I'll try to post those steps also.
