I just bought a new DP-300U printer server and trying to install it to our office network (peer to peer), step by step as per Quick Installation Guide came with the device. But I can not enter the server's web address(http://192.168.0.10) to access configuration as the Guide's instruction. It
always failed each time when my browser try to find the web address.
What was happened and what should I do, please help me.

ok have you tried changing the settings in the print server usually a printer must be configured on the print server before it can be used if it is on the network try telneting in to it through a web browser like you may a modem
Try using the psadmin software to do a factory reset. If it demands a password to do this, try using "SYSxxxx" (where xxxx stands for the last four digits of the MAC address written on the underside of the server. If you don't have the psadmin software you may be able to download it off the internet. After doing the reset you will need to follow the Quick Install Guide to set up the server. If you lost the Quick Install Guide you can download a new one from D-link's website. The following link may also be helpful: http://www.fixya.com/support/t224263-dp301p_psadmin_password_forgoten
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.
DP 300U's can get be pretty uncooperative when attached to a different router. One solution is to reset the DP 300U to its factory settings. Use the PS Admin software to do this. (If you lost the PS Admin software, you should be able to download it from the internet.) If the software prompts you for a password and you do not know it, try "SYSXXXX", where XXXX is the last four digits of the MAC address located on the underside of the print server.
After you reset the DP 300U you will need to set it up from scratch, a process which is not particularly intuitive. Refer to your "Quick Install Guide" (download it from D-link's web site if you don't have it anymore).
You just need to installe the . Inset the Printer Driver CD. It will Autoplay. Click on install the Driver.
After successfully installation of Driver, Go to Start-->Setting--> Printers and Faxes
You can find your printer here.Right Click on Printer --> Click on Sharing --> Give the Printer Name in Share Name.
You can installe the printer on client Machine by following way:
Go to Start-->Setting--> Printers and Faxes--> Click on Add Printer --> Check mark on Network Printer-->Clickn on Browse printer. It will Automatically discover your printer. Just Right click on it and clickon connect.
So... you've messed up the IP address on your DP-300U and now you can't even access the web browser configuration page? Yes, it's happened to the best of us. Although I'm sure there are more elegant solutions, one fix is to reset the server to its factory settings and then reconfigure it from scratch. Given that there is no reset button on the DP-300U, resetting can be frustrating, especially if it's asking you for a password that you never created in the first place! Here's what you can do...
1) Install the psadmin software which came with the print server. If you lost the software, you should be able to find it on the web somewhere.
2) Start the software. It should automatically locate your print server.
3) Click on "factory reset". If it demands a password, and you don't know it, try "SYSxxxx" (where xxxx is the last four digits of the MAC address written on the underside of your server)
4) Dust off your Quick Install Guide and go through the unintuitive configuration process. If you no longer have your Quick Install Guide you can find it on D-Link's website.
You might try to browse to that disk and see if there are any setup files (usually named setup.exe or install.exe). I've seen some drivers don't need to be installed by an installation program not by the new hardware wizard.
