Did you try using LPR mode instead? I find it works more relyable with any print server. SMB (windows network mode) is ****. I have had simalar problems with another printserver.

I am using DP-301U print server and wanting to attach with hp 1020 plus. However the printer in not printing. what is the root cause and give the solution please...


Hello and welcome to fixya.

First off, I would like to provide you a link with the print server's manual to download it directly and have it as spare.

The printer you are trying to install is a laser printer (black/white only) and probably a bit old model.
Therefore, if you are trying to print from your computer over ethernet, and you have windows vista or 7 (64 or 32bit accordingly) you might have the inappropriate drivers for either the print server or the printer. You can find all of the HP printer's drivers HERE. Select carefully based on your OS.

As a SIDENOTE: If you just need the drivers installed and there are only larger setup execut. files available, you can use 7zip or winace to open up the *.exe file and navigate to the appropriate folder and extract only that one to your computer and install the driver(s) from there.


The D-Link DP-301U print server drivers are available HERE. Default username and password for the management console of the print server can be found at pdf manual page 25. The url to access the administration console is dlink-******,where the asterisks stand for the last 6 digits of the print server MAC address.


Overall, not to make things over-complicated (150+ PDF user manual pages) you need to do the following:

1. Install the appropriate drivers of your hp printer on the computer that will have also print serv. softare installed.
2. Install the appropriate software/drivers of the dlink print server on the same computer.
3. Plugin the usb cable of your printer to the print server's USB port.
4. Plugin the ethernet cable of your print server port to the ethernet port of your home router/switch.
5. Setup Fixed IP settings for your print server configuration (page 20 on the manual).

Let me know how that went. I believe you will manage to do it that way quite easily.

I am able to configure the print server and configure printer but not able to print


try this.

i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

D-Link DP-301U Problem


It should be fine as long as it is in the range that the router can recognize and that it doesn't conflict with another IP address used on another device. Usually on the networks I design I keep the printers on higher IP address so that they can be managed on a certain range.

Is this the wireless print server?

What specifically do you mean by PJL printer block?

Step 2 Select Local Printer and click Next.
Step 3 Select Create a New Port and choose Standard TCP/IP Port from the drop-down menu and click Next.
Step 4 This will bring up the Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard. Click Next.
Step 5 Enter the IP address of the print server and the port name and click Next.
Step 6 The next window will prompt you for the Device Type. Select the Standard radio button and use Generic Network Card from the drop-down window.
Step 7 Click Finish to close the port configuration wizard.

I can not get two print servers to work on my network


I would suggest that you set a higher Ip address then 9-10 as it is possible that your router/switch is possibly using one of these for DHCP, I have one of these myself, I had to put mine a little uprange to prevent my router / switch from interfering with it.

Hi How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!! Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address... Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range.. If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN... Try the following steps. 1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter 2. type ipconfig. 3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX 4. Try pinging that ip address.. 5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine... Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...
