Printing from Mac os X 10.4.10

I am trying to install the print server on my Macbook. I have tried setting it up by browsing the default apple talk zone, the windows printing and browsing by IP. When selecting the printer from the apple talk browser, the print monitor says the document has printed but nothing happens.

Re: Printing from Mac os X 10.4.10

Here was the way I got it to work on my Mac: Set up the printer with a static IP address. Then add it as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printer. Specify L2 as the queue for a USB printer. (L1 is the parallel port).

(This took me a while to figure out - I couldn't get IPP or AppleTalk to work properly).

My print server cannot be reset to the factory default for some reason. I have tried holding the reset button for 10 secs, but without luck.

I have some devices where I have to hold the reset for 20 seconds. So try holding it longer. And make sure the print server is powered up when you do it.

I have a tplink PS310U MFC print server. I have managed to connect using a PC but there is no software for the Mac OS X. I am running Yosemite and can connect to the server for printing. However I can

If you can't scan then it sounds as if your computer doesn't have the appropriate driver installed for scanning. There are a lot of drivers and other downloads here:
including a scanner driver for MAC OS 10.3 to 10.7. Since Yosemite is 10.10, I don't know if this would work for you, but I think it your most promising solution.
It may be worth disconnecting the printer and connecting it directly to the computer. If it scans and prints when directly connected then it is likely that the print server is causing the problem and if as you say there is no Mac software for it you may be in a no-win situation. The fact that you can print through it however does mean there is hope, because I have found this page which is described as manual installation of the server on Mac OS here
FAQ ID 347 How to install Print Server manually on MAC OS
but the OS is 10.6.4 so, I'm not sure.
Not as helpful as I had hoped but perhaps you can get something from this screed

Since updating to Apple OS X Lion I cannot print using my Xerox 6200DP

Have you updated the Printer Driver for OS X.

Try uninstalling the existing Driver and reinstall a new one from the link below.

If you need any further assistance then please just ask.

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.

2. By manually install the program into your system. (Browse CD to the folder: manual installation.)
It is recommended to use the 2nd method and run the PSAdmin utility from the system's programs after the installation is completed.
If it still could not find the print server, direct connect your computer to the print server using cross over cable and run the utility again to find the print server.
When it finds the print server, change the print server IP( to a unique static IP your router can accept. Put the print server back to the network, change back your computer's IP accordingly and try ping the print server with the new IP or run the utility again.

For wireless print server, it is recommended to use Ad-hoc connection from a wireless computer to connect to the print server first. (follow the Quick Installation Guide booklet that came with the box on page 8)

Printer not printing

First thing to try when a printer fails is to turn off the power to the printer. Leave it turned off for about 2 minutes, then turn it back on. Try printing again. If this does not resolve your problem, please let me know and include the brand (HP, Epson, Canon, Lexmark, etc.) of your printer and which operating system (Windows XP/VISTA, Apple OS, Linux, etc.). you use.

Thank you for using the fixya forums~

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server

I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address:
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

Netgear Wireless Print Server WGPS606 won't install correctly

I finally got my WGPS606 installed - unfortunately, it's just on one computer so far, but that computer is on the network and is not wired. Here are a few tips:

1. hold the reset button (little pinhole) until you see some action going on with the lights (I forget exactly what happened, but after a while there was a change) - this served to "reset" my WGPS606's IP Address, which I had changed during setup.

2. connect your computer to the server with an ethernet cable and type in (the default IP Address of the server)

3. login with the default username and password:
username: admin
password: password

4. once logged in, you will see all of the WGPS606's information. At that point, you should be able to change the IP Address of the server to what you want it to be, but I think you can proceed to run the setup on the installation CD (or the installation program from the WGPS606's Netgear website) and it should be recognized on the wireless network.

In my case, I want to mention that when the initial setup failed for me, I used the MAC address on the back of the server. After steps 1-4, my server was finally on the wireless network by the installation program, however, the MAC address was 1 digit off from what was on the server. The MAC address on the back of the server was the PHYSICAL MAC address, whereas the WIRELESS MAC address was one digit higher (last set of numbers. For instance, on the back of the server, the MAC address ended in ":01" and I found out that this was the physical MAC address. The wireless MAC address was exactly the same, except the last 2 digits were ":02."

Another thing to note was that after the server was recognized, it told me to reserve a specific IP Address other than what I had previously set - I didn't realize that it chose it for you. Anyway, just keep that in mind. After this, everything worked like a charm - well, I have yet to set up the other computers to connect to the server, but at least I have one!

Hope this helps!
