Re: 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

Can not install

Chapter 3 - Configuration
This section will show you how to configure your new D-Link wireless print server using the web-based configuration
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:
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

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

DPR-1260 with Epson CX6600 & Dymo Duo

The DPR-1260 is pretty easy to configure and works well with my HP Laser 1012, HP Photosmart 8250, and HP OfficeJet 5610. The Operating System on the computer is what matters... as long as it's running Windows XP, Vista, or a server edition like Win2003, you should be fine. I can't speak to the Mac environment, as I don't have any experience there. As for the Dymo Duo, I can't tell you how well it'll work in this environment, but based on my experience with it and many other print servers that I've tried, I can't think of a better configuration to try. Personally, I would recommend the DPR-1260 to anyone... just make sure you follow the installation instructions in the users manual carefully, and you can't go wrong. I love mine, hopefully you'll enjoy yours as well.

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.
