Question about D-Link RangeBooster G DPR-1260 (DPR1260) Print Server
Like to get some advice from anyone.
Problem: I'm losing connectivity from wireless laptops to Dlink DPR-1260 wireless printer server.
Sonicwall TZ150W wireless firewall / router (not-bridged to LAN)
HP ML150 Server
HP LaserJet 2420 Printer
HP Server and Printer are connected to LAN, and internal users can print OK via the 192.168.0.x network
My customer needs to have sales people attach to wireless network which is in a different subnet from the LAN, and cannot be bridge through the Sonicwall TZ150. These users connect OK via WPA-PSK via 172.16.0.x network. They must also share the "one" HP 2420 Printer and print wireless.
I purchased the Dlink DPR-1260 and intially was not able to get it connected via AD-HOC, so I elected to go with Infrastructure. It's joined to the router and MAC address is registered.
I then added printers in various XP and Vista laptops. Initally it makes a connection and allows to print. Eventually the print queues in laptop will lose connection and not appear available. I'll eventually have to unplug the print server, and sometime reconfigure via the print setup wizard in order to get the laptops to see it.
Some users even notice that when they reboot their laptops the print job will kick out.
Also, I have to have a cat5 cable plugged into one of the Dlink's port or else it will lose it's connect.
I'm wondering if I should try an hammer out the AD-HOC problem and if that would work in a encrypted WPA environment.
I appreciate any feedback from you guys. I'm not finding any thing out there on the search pages.
Solution to loosing connection:
Assign a static IP-address to the DPR-1260 through it's own webinterface. The static IP should be OUTSIDE the DHCP IP Address Range of your DHCP server (in most cases your router). Thus: do not reserve a IP address via your DHCP server.

If I power off my HP printer, the DPR 1260 loses connectivity with the printer. I have to reinstall using the USB connection from the printer to the PC, then DON'T POWER DOWN THE PRINTER, & then move the USB to the server & reinstall. The printer will work as long as the power to the printer stays on.

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
