How do I find the new IP address for the Zonet ZSP3611 Printer Server so I can set up my printer to work


An easy way would be to download and install nmap. For the IP address to scan, if your computer ip is say, 192.168.0.52 then enter 192.168.0.0/24 and select the quick scan. Whichever device comes back with an open port of 9100 is most likely the print server.

I have been using non Epson cartridges for years on my RX620 but today when I changed the black cartridge, I got a message that none of my cartridges were recognized as Epson and the printer is now locked...


Newer Epson ink cartridges and other manufacturers place a chip in the cartridge that interacts with the printer, telling it is a genuine cartridge.

If an aftermarket cartridge is used, it may not have the chip and subsequently will not work with the printer.

The best work around is to use genuine Epson cartridges, but when they are empty, take them to a store that can re-fill them or exchange them for a previously refilled genuine cartridge.

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


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

Printing to a Canon MX310 through a print server


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.

cheers!!
