Question about D-Link Air Plus DP-G310 (dpg-310) Print Server

Wireless laptop not printing

I set up a D-Link DP-G310 print server to my HP 6310 All-in-One printer on my desktop PC. I have the Cat 5 going from the 6310 to a router and the DP-G310 connected to the same router (also a D-Link). My USB cable is connected from the HP 6310 to the DP-G310.I can print with this configuration from my desktop. So I have set up the same printer on my laptop with the same IP address for the print server. Despite several attempts to reinstall and try changing some settings I cannot get my wireless HP laptop to print to the HP 6310 printer. Did I miss a step??

Frustrated in NC.

    Yes it does. So does that mean I don't need the print server? Do I need to do anything to the laptop to make the connection to the printer?

    I am confused about your printer connections. Does your HP 6310 already have an integrated network port?

Indeed, you don't need the print server. Since your HP 6310 already has an integrated network port, you may setup and use it on your laptop the same way you do with your desktop. If you can browse the Internet wirelessly with your laptop, you should also be able to print.

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.

    I cannot print using DP-G310 print server connected via switch to the HP Laser Jet P1005 printer.All the configurations are ok ,but i still wonder what is happenning.When i connect the printer direct to...

    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

    D-Link DP-301U Problem

    It should be fine as long as it is in the range that the router can recognize and that it doesn't conflict with another IP address used on another device. Usually on the networks I design I keep the printers on higher IP address so that they can be managed on a certain range.

    Is this the wireless print server?

    What specifically do you mean by PJL printer block?

    HP LaserJet 1018 & DP-G310

    Does your network have a dedicated computer server and the printer is attached to this server or is the printer attached to a dedicated print server device?
    Does a computer on your network shares its printer with other computers on your network?
    There is insufficient information on how you configured your printer setup for me to give you a proper answer to your problem.

    Documents not printing

    Hi How to check the print server is in the wireless network or not!! Check under the Router Setup page Router's ip address... Check if you are able to ping the Print Server Ip address....Since it the router will assign a ip address from DHCP range.. If you are able to ping the router's ip address and the print server ip address then the print server is in the Wireless LAN... Try the following steps. 1. Go to run and type "cmd" press enter 2. type ipconfig. 3. Check the range of ip address...if its 192.168.0.XX 4. Try pinging that ip address.. 5. If able to ping the router and print server.. Then the wireless network is fine... Somehow some of the printer's don't work with some of the print servers.. Check if D-link does support the printer or not!!!! for this particular model of the router...
