Question about D-Link DP 311U (DP-311U) Print Server

D-Link DP 311U wireless setup

Signed up for the new AT&T Uverse service to replace my existing DSL service. The new service came with a new 2WIRE wireless router with a different WEP key and different IP address range. I've been able to get my various PC's to connect to the new wireless network, but I've had no luck with the D-Link DP-311U print server. I've noticed that on the PC's the old 2WIRE router used Network authentication of 'open' and data encryption of 'WEP', whereas the new 2WIRE router requires Network authentication of 'WPA-PSK' and data encryption of 'TKIP'. there doesn't seem to be any way to specify anything other than 64 bit or 128 bit and ascii or hex for the encryption connection with the DP 311U. Am I missing something, or am I just out of luck with an old print server I will have to replace?

Had same problem. Got it to work!!
I have DLink DP-311U and 2Wire Gateway router/modem 2701HG-B.

Solution: Connect DP-311U to router via network cable.
Then you can see it either with PS Admin or with browser http://192.168.0.10 should be default IP address of DLink Print Server. Set Connection Mode=Infrastructure, ESS-ID=2WIRExxx (xxx is your number of the router) - this is your network name, and wireless channel=1.
And the most important - change your IP Address to 192.168.1.xxx - xxx=choose a number over 64 if it's not taken already.

On your Gateway page: http://gateway.2wire.net/xslt?PAGE=J46&THISPAGE=A02_POST&NEXTPAGE=J46
Set Network Name=2WIRExxx, WIreless Channel=1, enable SSID Broadcast, Disable wireless network Security.

Once you get those numbers in, check connectivity with above programs with cable connected, or typing new print server IP address in browser. Then disable cable and check again. You should be able to see the box. Then connect print server to printer and make sure your printer settings on computer point to new IP address.

I've run into this issue with some of my older linksys/dlink network equipment as well. These old devices just dont' support WPA encryption. I've gotten around this by just setting the wireless router back to WEP encryption. If this is not an option, then I recommend upgrading to a newer wireless print server.

I see that DLink has provided a firmware upgrade but I am not sure if it has WPA or not.

I have a same DP-311U print server and shared your problem.
After a day of searching, I think I resolve this problem by setting up a proper default gateway. It is very simple:
login to your DP-311U, say http://192.168.1.10 Click on Network tab, replace the default gateway 0.0.0.0  with 192.168.1.1 (the ip address of your network router) and save.
On your PC, Control Panel --> Printers and Faxs --> right click on the printer and select properties --> select  Ports tab --> click on Configure Ports --> in LPR settings, check mark LPR Byte Counting Enabled --> selec OK
You are OK to go. Good luck to you all.

The network appliance you're asking about is a modem with a wireless router built in. Basically, it's an all-in-one device. It will replace your already existing modem. It is a wise upgrade for any AT&T DSL connection.

That means the older 2wire card was a B model adapter, which can only run at 11mbps. The other laptop most likely has built in wireless or some other adapter in it that runs on the G model, which is 54 mbps. There is no way to fix this issue, other then aquiring a new wireless adapter for your older laptop.

Can I use AT&T 2WIRE 2701HG-B DSL to ant ISP?


look if u wish to go for verizon service,,they will provide u with a wireless modem as well,,but if u tell them that u hav a modem then they might configure this modem only,,both ATT and verizon are DSL service providers with PPPoE connections.the only thing u need is the username and passwrd from verizon which u have to setup on the first page of the 2wire setup page,,both the connections are dhcp based.so no other connection settings change required.But when u talk with verizon make sure u tell them of the 2wire modem

Moreover verizon has wireless broadband service which is actually a express card tat u have to put into your computer and u can go online anywhere u go within ur country{it works like a mobile phone}

best of luck,,keep me posted

Can i connect a 2wire 2701hg-b with roadrunner cable internet ? I had the 2wire dsl with at&t but recently disconnected the service


It is possible but it may not work as a router (2 wire 270). The 2wired router only has a phone port and ethernet/usb for computer connection. So if you will connect the roadrunner modem to the 2wired, you can connect it to the ethernet port of the 2wire, but the 2 wire will not function as a router any more. It will work just like a wireless bridge. This one setup that you can.

Have you installed the new drivers for your HP?

Personally, on all HP Printers, I use only HP products, mainly Jetdirect Print Servers, but you might try creating a TCP Port Printer (via your Printer Install Wizard) and use that. You only need to know the IPAddress of the DLink and the Drivers for the HP Printer.
