Question about D-Link RangeBooster G DPR-1260 (DPR1260) Print Server

Canon Pixma MP530 multifunction printer comes up as a fax

Howdy, So when I connect the print server to the printer, it recognizes it as a fax machine. I comes up as MP530 FAX instead of printer. When I go to print something out, a fax window comes up on my computer. Any ideas on how to get the print server to recognize the printer as a printer instead of a fax? The printer I'm using is on the list of compatible devices. Thanks

This is absolutely the right solution. I used this for my Canon MP780 printer under Vista, as well. I want to include all of the keywords here. It is important to note that the DPR-1260 shipped with Firmware Version 1.12 cannot be seen by Visa until it is upgraded with the Version 1.21 firmware, but after downgrading back to the Version 1.12 firmware, the DPR-1260 is still visible and it now recognizes my Canon MP780 multifunction printer as a printer and not as a fax machine. I plan to post this same solution to other sites, so that hopefully others can get their DPRs working again. Whew!

I'm having the same issue with Canon MP830 - can't get the printer function at all. Anyone have any workaround?

    Solution I have found so far for the MP830 is to re-install the firmware of the DPR-1260 back from version 1.21 (the latest) to 1.12. Don't know why this works but it got me printing. I'm a bit disappointed that the DPR-1260 doesn't support scanning with this printer, but maybe someone out there knows of a way?

You can try to install it again, as you browse the printer on network, insert the cd intaller then click your printer, start installing the driver thats it, you can use it already.

We are moving and need the MP530 to operate wireless and wish to buy the interface through the router; does a (say) five year old MP530 support a wireless interface?


This model printer has only an USB printer connection.
To connect this printer to a wireless network, you need additional equipment, a print server with an USB pirnter connection and then connect this printer server to a wireless router using a LAN cable.
It may be easier to purchase a new printer with wireless connectivity.

Canon PIXMA MX330 multifunction printer. I get a lot of faxes. Is there a way to save ink & paper by having all faxes come in without printing them & just putting them to memory & review them...


unfortunatly not!The m/c will print each and every fax!I can suggest getting a fax to email nr and recieve the faxes on your pc and then printing what u need!Memory does keep about 258 pages depending on the coverage on the pages!

I just received a fax on my mp530 and it said received in memory. How do I print it out?


I have a Canon MP but not your model. Try this.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Communications/Fax/Fax Console

Then click Inbox, double click the fax and print it if you wish. There are options to print as soon as the fax is received, or you can send faxes to Desktop, or both options.

I can't send faxes on my Canon Pixma MP530 on digital phone line


They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:

Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.

You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems


I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!
