Connect d-link print server with linksys router

I have a d-link (DPR-1260) print server that is connected to a linksys router. I am using Vista on my laptop. I think I got the wireless working in that I am able to access the print server web page using The status page shows the printer and is ready, but I can't send anything to the printer to print. The wireless setting in the D-Link setup is DHCP. Is there any thing in the linksys configuration page I need to do??

Re: Connect d-link print server with linksys router

You might need to set the Gateway on the router to match your ip on the print server.

Can you see the print server from your laptop? You should be able to find it in Network Neighborhood it should be listed as http://dlinkps-XXXXXX where xxxxxx is the last 6 digits of the mac address printed on the label on the print server. Open a browser and enter http://dlinkps-XXXXXX and you should be connected to the print server web interface.

Thanks, Jim

Can't connect a Dlink 1260 Print server through my Linksys wireless G router

A couple of things to check for:

  • If the wireless network is encrypted on your router verify that you have the right encryption key programmed on the print server
  • You are connecting to the corret router (Verify the SSID of the network - SSID being the networks name)
  • Make sure you are in an acceptable range , not 500 feet away from the router
  • Verify that the print server has a connection to the printers connected to it
  • Try rebooting all of the equipment (router , server, printers)

Problem with DPR-1260

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

Issues Printing with DPR-1260

This worked for me and I was having the same issues as everyone.

Before I put this solution in (manually adding the printer step-by-step), I could print a test page just fine, but not anything from Office.

Make sure to follow each step in order. I printed off the test page and held it up to the old one and the only thing I saw different was a field named "Shared". It was blank but who knows. I'm just happy the darn thing is working!

Printer eventually loses connection...

Try to upgrade the firmware revision to the last one (1.21).
I had similar problem with the dpr-1260 firmware rev 1.00.
Now after the firmware upgrade the problem seems solved

DPR 1260 will not work at all

I had the same problem earlier. Forget that I had MAC address filters setup. You might need to add your printer server's MAC. Then it should work. Mine did. Good luck

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page

To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
