Can Not Print to HP LJ 1020

Hi... I have a D-Link DP-300u as a LAN print server and HP LJ 1020 (USB) plus Epson LQ2180 (LPT1) connected to it.

At first i can print without any problem to both printers.
But next day i can not print to HP.
There isn't any error printing report from my application. so I check the printserver Interface.
It is online but still can not print even a Print Test.
I thought something went wrong with HP.
So i tried to print directly by connecting the printer to my notebook and it printed perfectly.
Now my guess is that somehow printdata doesnt reach the printer or transfer from the printserver has failed.

Anyone got a solution for this one? please help. thanx

Hook the print server directly to the computer and program it with a static IP address.
than create a new printer port in add printer. Than setup the printer and use the port you just created and it will work fine

Print jobs wont leave spooler when using d-link 1260 print server. But do when connecting via USB.

This sounds like a defective driver problem with the print server. reinstall the driver. If this does not solve the problem then contact D-Link support for further advice.

USB printer HP 1020 Plus in DP-301U

Did you try using LPR mode instead? I find it works more relyable with any print server. SMB (windows network mode) is ****. I have had simalar problems with another printserver.

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.

HP LJ P1008 can be used as network printer ?

I have one of theses D-Link PD-301U. It does NOT support a printer like yours. According to D-Link's Web site, here are the HP Laser printers it supports (note the P1008 is NOT in the list):

  • 1200
  • 1500 (USB 2.0)
  • 2200
  • 2200D

    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 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:
    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!

    Not printing to network attached printer

    I have a DLink DPR-1260, and found the configuration to be challenging too. First of all, has it ever worked? If not, you may need to check your router config to ensure that they are both on the same subnet. Typically they come set to 192.168.x.x... if the router is set to, the print server is set to, and your subnet mask is set to it'll never connect. Make sure that the router and print server are configured to the same subnet... 192.168.1.x for example... and then try it. Let us know if that doesn't resolve your issue, and we'll keep working with you.
