Question about D-Link DP 300U (DP-300U) Print Server

1 Answer

DLINK DP-300U. Desktop shows printer offline, Laptop prints OK.

I have a DLINK DP-300U. My Desktop has XP home, and has been printing to this for years.
Today the printer was showing offline, I was able to get into the print server a test the USb port, test is ok from print server.

Went to my laptop and the same printer shows ready, test print and checks ok.

Decided to remove port and printer from my desktop. Reinstall and the printer shows ready, but try to test print and document fails.

I recently changed/ installed AV protection about 3 weeks ago, but can't recall if I was able to print or checked printing.

Problem appears to be in the PC.

Any ideas what to try next?

First thing.. plug printer directly into PC.. does it work? .. if so its is a port setting. If now it is the device config on PC

If Port Setting Issues.. are you going through any other devices on the network or is you firewall blocking the IP.

If device Config issue check to see it is setup up as an IP Port not a normal local port

Ideally, you change your PC's NIC to an IP in the range of 192.168.2.150, say 192.168.2.2 with mask 255.255.255.0 then directly connect your NIC to the Print Server and open your browser to 192.168.2.150, from there change the IP address of the Print Server.

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server


I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at http://192.168.0.10/ user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address: 192.168.0.10
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

DLink DP-300U Print Server


What is the IP of the Print Server and the Printer itself? They have to be on a 'flat network' or the gateways of the the 'adjacent' networks have to be defined as a neighborhood.
