Printers are not recognized as online by printserver
I am using the D-link DIR-635 router and the DPR-1260 printserver in a wireless 11g network (DHCP), Windows XP SP2. Installation of the printserver went fine, installation (by Wizard) of a Canon LBP2900 and iP4300 went well also. Both printers show up in the "Printers and Faxes" folders. Problem is that the printserver does not recognize the online status of the printers and keeps stating "offline" in the utility. So does Windows. Trying to print generates an error message "Wrong port. The port the printer is connected to can not be used. Check the port". The correct printer drivers are installed on the computer, I tried to share the printers but it did not help. Since the printers showed up in the menu I have not installed them manually. What did I miss?

Connect the printserver wirh the Wiredless internetrouter and disable the firewall Start internetexplorer and type dlink-xxxxx the last 6 digits of yor mac adres from the d-link printserver. you sould then have a connection with the printserver.
Go to 192.168.0.1 and login. Then go for the 'Setup' tab on the top and look for the 'Wireless Settings' tab on the right.
You can now automaticly setup your WLAN connection and afterwards you can go to the 'Manual Wireless Network Setup'. Over there you can change the 802.11 mode.
Mixed 802.11g and 802.11b
Mixed 802.11ng and 802.11g
Mixed 802.11n, 802.11g and 802.11b
Go for the last one that uses n,g and b and you will be sure your computer can connect :)
My DPR-1260 arrived yesterday and I set it up easily in minutes on both Windows 7 (32-bit Pro) and XP SP3 with 3 printers attached. So far I have only tried wired connection. Wi-fi may be more problematical. Printers are Brother HL-2040, HL-2140 and Samsung CLP-300. Could not get it to recognize my Canon Lide 25 scanner
You should have your DSR 1260 connected via cable to your router. Open a browser. Go to http://dlink-xxxxx (xxxx=last 6 digits of your 1260's MAC address) or http://192.168.0.10. The DSR 1260 web config screen will open. Click on the Setup tab (top row). Then click on Wireless Setting on the left hand column menu. Select settings based on your router's setting, Typically: Wireless Setting: On; Network Name: choose from drop down, if not there, type your router name in; Wireless Mode: Infrastructure; SuperG Mode: same as your router; Security: same as your router. Then Save.
Remove the cable connection of your 1260 and your router. Then go to Status in the web config. Click on Wireless. It should now show your router details. That's it.
this kind of problem occurs in dlink router sometimes & after some time router stop responding after 10 -15 min & once u reboot the router it again start work for a while. the best solution to this problem is to reset the router back to its factory defualt settings u can do this by press the reset button on the back on the router ( it looks like a small hole u have to use a pin for press that button) once u have reset the router to factory default settings just reconfig the router & i am sure it will start working fine in case u still face the same problem just contact D-link or send me the details about the problem & the physical setup of ur router & printer etc
