Question about D-Link RangeBooster G DPR-1260 (DPR1260) Print Server
DPR-1260 ... has been operational for a few months. Web config was working via http://IPAddress during first-time setup. Now the unit is suddenly not available and any attempts to access the web config via the IP Address locks up the Print Server.
I have reset the DPR-1260 many times and it acquires an IP address via DHCP from my router - and it even shows up if I enable "Show uPNP devices" in "My Network Places". I can even print to my printer via wired network cable using the DHCP IP Address. BUT I cannot print wirelessly since I cannot get into the web config of the unit.
Okay.....I was having the same problem too. I was able to get some help that worked for me. I tried to recall all the steps. Here is what I had to do to set up my DPR-1260 print server again:
How to connect/install after changing router or computer:
10. Under “Default gateway”, enter the IP address of your router again
11. “Subnet Mask” should be: 255.255.255.0
12. click “save”……..the system will reboot and the web page will say “not able to connect” or something like that. This is because we have now changed the IP address of the print server.
13. Disconnect Ethernet cable from your computer and now connect it to your router.
14. Now open new browser and enter in the IP address of router. This should open the web configuration page again.
15. Go to “SetUp” and run SetUp
16. Print Test Page. It should work now.
17. Go back to step 3 (above) and now click “Obtain an IP address automatically” and make sure that “Obtain DNS server address automatically” is also selected. This is so your internet will work properly again.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I did disconnect the print server wired connection and repowered it. Still had the same problem. I finally decided to change the IP address from DHCP to static and that solved the problem. Not sure why, but all is good now.

Keep in mind that once you have configured the wireless networking on the print server, you MUST disconnect it from the wired network. It uses the same MAC (aka "hardware") address on both interfaces, so when it tries to participate on both, it fails to be networked at all. Make sure you're only using one (wireless or wired) network at a time.

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.
