Question about D-Link RangeBooster G DPR-1260 (DPR1260) Print Server
I am having issues printing from VISTA (x64) using my DPR-1260 and an HP-PSC1350. I can print from Notepad / Windows Image Viewer however, printing from Internet Explorer/Firefox/Office 2007, it will not work. Outlook says "Printer not ready." Office Word doesn't give an error but the document disappears from the spool immediately and does not print. Firefox says "Printing failed when completing the page". I tried everything from XP and it does work absolutely fine (so I assume it's not a printer or print server issue).
I've tried disabling the bidirectional option, changing from RAW to LPR (but the spool then seems to hang), creating the port manually. No luck.
Any suggestions would sure be appreciated
This worked for me and I was having the same issues as everyone.
Before I put this solution in (manually adding the printer step-by-step), I could print a test page just fine, but not anything from Office.
Make sure to follow each step in order. I printed off the test page and held it up to the old one and the only thing I saw different was a field named "Shared". It was blank but who knows. I'm just happy the darn thing is working!

I could print a test page and from notepad, but not from any other application ie: word, Acrobat, excel etc. I installed, uninstaled and tried to change to lpr which just hung the print que. I could print when the printer was connected via USB. So I compared the printer properties and the Dlink advance tab did not have a check in Enable advance printing. I selected it and applied the settings now I can print from all documents. It does take a longer to queue and print from Word, Acrobat etc, but it does work now.

My printer was hanging after printing half a page for ~10 min before finally spitting the page out unfinished. I was able to fix it by going into "printer properties" then "ports" and clicking "configure port" on the one that was selected. I then switched to "LPR" with byte counting and put in the name of the queue from the dpr-1260 web screen. Haleluja!

I had the same problem with Vista. I couldn't web into the router as http://dlinkps-xxxxxx. However I was able to web into the router with my-local-network-IP-router though. So Vista printing now worked for me after I changed the Printer Name or IP Address under Printer TCP-IP port setting to my-local-network-IP-router (192.168.x.x instead of dlinkps-xxxxxx)
Also make sure you download and update router to ver 1.21 for Vista support.
Good luck to ya.

For you all Vista user, make user you have windows vista drivers for you printer. You might want to upgrade to the latest firmware for the DPR-1260. You can find it at support.dlink.com

I spent 3 full days getting my Officejet5600 Multi Function to work and print. It was installing and connecting to the computer through the DPR-1260 Print Server but would only print a couple of lines of a document then error. I finally found my solution.
Install the printer as local under LPR and then I went to Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows Features On / Off (on the left). Where the Print check box is expand it and enable LPR. This will take serveral minutes to install. I was then able to print what I wanted.

I have upgraded the firmware, and I got the latest HP1018 drivers. If I connect to USB, print a test page, then change port back to the print server and then it prints until I power down the laptops (Vista), then on restart I have to go through the whole process again. I have not tried cycling the power on the print server.
