Question about D-Link DP-300U (DHDP300U) Print Server
I've got two printer: HP LJ 5100 and HP LJ 1200. I connect 1500 to LP1 and 1200 to LP2. It's oke with 5100 but when adding LJ1200, it took a long time to finish and when printing test page or anything, it had no respond and all the things printed out by HP 5100. I couldn't understand why this happen? Please help!

It seems that I found an imperfect solution. When you intall the printer on your PC and print a testpage, the firmware is sent from PC to printer and is stored in the printers internal memory. When you unplug your printer from your pc and plug it in on your printserver it should work fine as the firmware has been loaded alraedy. You can't switch of the printer nor the printserver or the firmware needs to be uploaded again via your printer. There is no way at the moment to load the firmware upon booting of the printer by the print server. Hopefully this issue will get resolved in the near future.

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

you have to see, When you give the print command how many pages are set to print in printing option of the page and you told about test page, it set to one as default.

Sorry but P1005 does not come with its own processor to work of a Print Server, it needs PCs processor to process the printed file and send it in a specified format to it. This makes it cheaper for HP to make printers and sell at a margin because their is no processor in them. You have to get a printer which has a processor to work with a Print Server for instance look for Hp 1300 or HP 1100 series

I was having the same problem when I added a Windows Vista PC to my home network. My older XP systems workd fine, but the Vista system would keep printing. The following fix worked forme in vista, may work in XP also.
1. First, be sure you have the latest firmware in your DPR1260. Version 1.24 is what I am using.
2. From the printer window (or via controlm panel) select your printer, then select Properties (either right click, or from the menu via File-Properties)
3. In the Properties Window, select the Ports tab. You should see your printer highlighted and checked, under the port heading next to thcheck box you'll see IP_192.168.x.x, under descriptio Standard TCP/IP Port, and undr Printer, the name of your printer.
4. Click the "Configure Port" button, be sure "LPR" is selected, not "RAW". Under LPR Settings, check that the "Queue Name" matches that in our DPR1260 status screen, and be sure SNMP Status Enabled is not checked.
The problem on my Vista machine went away when I changed from "RAW" to "LPR" settings.
Hope this helps.
