Chapter 3 - Configuration
This section will show you how to configure your new D-Link wireless print server using the web-based configuration
utility.
Web-based Configuration Utility
The IP address of your print server will be automatically assigned by your router.
To access the print server’s web-based configuration interface:
Windows® XP users:
Double-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop. Your print server will be displayed as “DPR-1260:
dlinkps-xxxxxx” (where xxxxxx is the last 6 characters of your print server’s MAC address). If you do not see the print
server or have UPnP enabled, please refer to page 13.
Windows® 2000 users:
You will need to write down the MAC address located on the bottom of the print server (E.G. 00-54-23-45-f5-b6). Open
a web browser and enter the following:
http://dlinkps-XXXXXX
XXXXXX = the last six characters of your MAC address.
Note: Some printer software features may not work
while connected to the print server such as ink level display.

This will prove the print server is working. If you can not access the web interface then it may not be getting an address from the router

I think you need to connect your printer to the router using an ethernet cable and not a USB cable. Ethernet cables are plug-and-play cables and doesn't require you to install a software. If you really need to connect your printer using a USB cable, you need to connect it to your PC so that the PC will run the installation wizard to install the USB cable. Of course the router cannot run installation wizard to the printer or the printer cannot run installation wizard to the router.

Hi James,

It sounds like you're halfway there. You now need to find out the IP Address that the USB convertor box is using by going into the D-link router. Note it down (including the dots separating them) and then go into the printer poperties of the printer on your laptop. (Sorry I don't which operating system you are using so I'm going to have to assume that you know how to do this. If not, drop me a line.)

Click on the Ports tab.
Click on the Add Port.. button below the list of ports
In th window that pops up click once to highlight the Standard TCP/IP Port option and click the New Port.. button underneath the selection box.
A wizard will appear. Click Next.
In the next window enter the IP Address you noted from the router noting the dots between the numbers in the Printer Name or IP Address box. (Note that the Port Name box will autofill.)
Click Next (you may have to wait a moment for the settings to take effect).
Another windows will open and the default selection is Generic Network Card. (Leave it as is and click next.)
The finish windows will appear. Check the settings . The defaults are as follows:
SNMP: No
Protocol: RAW, Port9100
Device: (The IP Address that you enterred earlier)
Port Name: IP_(The IP Address as above)
Adapter Type: Generic Network Card

Click Finish and get back the pinter properties page at the Ports tab.

Check that there is a check mark next to the port you have just created (i.e. IP_(IP Address you enterred earlier)

Click Apply and OK.

Return to the properties and print a test page.

Let me know how you go. Cheers.

Use of HPJ4680 in a network with Mac & PC connected to router


Ok what you do is, install the printer as a LOCAL one on one of the PC's, Probably the XP, one, would be best. or perhaps the PC; actually "Connected" to the D-link router & Modem, then Now install this printer , as a LOCAL, printer, and set as DEFAULT, enable Printer Sharing. Now, ALL PC's MUST, have a Name, Belong to the same Workgroup, have a Password. On the "Other" PC's Install the Printer as a Network Printer, browse for it and connect. Print a test page from each. Remember the PC with the printer attached, must obviously be ON or the "Others" cannot connect and print.. Make sure all network permissions are set sharing is set, especially on the Win 7. Just make sure they can all "See" each other first, before try all this.. the network MUST be intact and communicatable from each PC to at least the PC with the printer attached.

You're trying to do what?
Are you using a router that is also a print server?
Are you using a USB print server?
Printers don't hook up to routers unless it's a network connection with an ethernet cable.
Print servers hook up to printers with a USB cable, but are attached to the network with an ethernet cable in most cases.

Are you using the ethernet connection or a USB connection? If you are using USB, do you have the printer connected to a hub or directly to the computer? Does changing the cable to a different USB port get the computer to see the printer? If you are using a USB port in a hub, try a direct connection. Does the USB hub have power-transformer or is it powered by the computer? Printers are extremely sensitive to losing data when the cable run is too long or the USB hub has too many devices attached (particularly when powered by the computer). Also try a new USB cable. An additional troubleshooting test: turn off your printer for 30 seconds, unplug both sides of the USB cable and see if it is found when you plug it back in and turn it on.

If you are using an ethernet connection, check the cables for both the printer and the computer. Also try plugging the cables into different ports on your router or switch. I'm assuming you have your network working and have a IP address (if your network gives dynamic addresses). You might try repairing the network connection (right click on the network icon in the system tray in XP or Vista).

If these ideas do not help, I'm not sure what is causing your problem.. I hope this helps.

My HP Officejet 6310 All-In-One InkJet Printer is unable to complete the network installation


Are you connecting via usb or ethernet cable?
Through usb you need to install the driver on the pc it is connected to. Then share it.

Through ethernet make sure your CAT5/Ethernet cable is connected from your printer to your router/switch. Through the menu on the printer Print the network setup.

Then from your web browser type
http://ip address of printer from the network setup page

If you can then you need to add the printer driver on your pc and use a tcp/ip port to print to it through the network.

Network printer


Connect one end of an ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the printer and the other one into a free port on the router. Then, using the install CD, tell it that you are attaching a printer on the network. The software should automatically detect the printer on the network and set itself up for it.

1) Ensure you've run the D-Link supplied automatic configuration wizard. 2) Also ensure you have "Netbios over TCP/IP" enabled in your network settings. 3)Ensure you turn off "Bidirectional Printing" in the Ports tab and "Enabled Advanced printing features" in the advanced tab, for testing purposes. I know the printer connectivity is officially supported by D-Link (thru an independent 3rd party test facility) but it seems they may have had NetBeui installed, which is an outdated networking protocol. Try the first 3 options I gave, if they don't work, then let me know. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
