HP laserjet 1018 service

I cannot get the D-Link DP 311U that I have been using with my old Lexmark 312 printer to work with my new HP laserjet 1018 printer. Is the DP 311U just not able to serve my new HP printer, or am I failing to do something in the installation process? thank you

Have you installed the new drivers for your HP?

Personally, on all HP Printers, I use only HP products, mainly Jetdirect Print Servers, but you might try creating a TCP Port Printer (via your Printer Install Wizard) and use that. You only need to know the IPAddress of the DLink and the Drivers for the HP Printer.

HP LaserJet 1018: paper will feed, but no content can be printed

just try to print the self test of the hp 1018 printer.self pest is printed directly from the printer not by giving command from the printer. press any one of the button on the printer and hold it till the light blinks.leave the button when light starts blinking .place the paper in the soon as you leave the button .a self page will be printed..that is self test.if the self test comes out proper that means its your driver software problem.but if self test also has problem then its the clear problem of dust collected on the printer reading lens due to not using it for 2 the printer needs servicing. get it serviced at local printer repair shop .

Hp 1020 dp-300u

dont' worry about what the d-link site says. its because they haven't tested it. i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

    D-Link DP 311U wireless setup

    Had same problem. Got it to work!!
    I have DLink DP-311U and 2Wire Gateway router/modem 2701HG-B.

    Solution: Connect DP-311U to router via network cable.
    Then you can see it either with PS Admin or with browser should be default IP address of DLink Print Server. Set Connection Mode=Infrastructure, ESS-ID=2WIRExxx (xxx is your number of the router) - this is your network name, and wireless channel=1.
    And the most important - change your IP Address to - xxx=choose a number over 64 if it's not taken already.

    On your Gateway page:
    Set Network Name=2WIRExxx, WIreless Channel=1, enable SSID Broadcast, Disable wireless network Security.

    Once you get those numbers in, check connectivity with above programs with cable connected, or typing new print server IP address in browser. Then disable cable and check again. You should be able to see the box. Then connect print server to printer and make sure your printer settings on computer point to new IP address.
