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

4 Answers

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.

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.

cheers!!

    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?

    Wireless printing with AT&T U-verse and 3800 HGV-B and Linksys WPSM54G


    I may not be able to completely solve the issue for all who posted, and I have not gotten the scanner part of my Brother MFC-5440CN printer/scanner/copier/fax to work through the wireless PS, but I can at least shed some light:

    First off - trying to make the Linksys WPS54G work on a wireless network that has a decent level of security is NOT for the faint of heart!

    Key issue is security; make sure you know what wireless security protocol your router is using (WEP-64, WEP-128, or WPA). My U-verse installation uses the exact same 2Wire router, but either it defaults to WPA security, or the tech set it up that way without asking me. WPA is preferable anyway, as it is the most secure, and I had my network set up on WPA with my ZOOM X6 when we had AT&T DSL.

    The problem is that the Linksys unit is old/obsolete enough that it defaults to WEP or no security, and in fact the setup program and utilities on the CD that came with the refurb. unit I recently bought are way outdated compared to the current downloads available on their support site, and don't even offer WPA as an option.

    If your U-verse router is configured for WPA, as is most likely, then you have to get your Linksys unit configured for WPA security before it can be properly "seen" on the network by your computers. This means either downloading the latest setup/driver programs from Linksys's support website and burning a fresh setup CD, or getting to the Web-interface of the unit and setting it there (I could not even get to the web-interface because of my firewall and other security). Only then can you set the unit to use WPA security with the same key/passphrase as your U-verse router and your computer(s).

    I'd advise downloading the latest stuff in any case. I ended up downloading the latest firmware, upgrading it on the unit using the Bi-Admin util on the setup CD, setting up the unit using the web-interface (be patient, because sometimes the page loads can be very slow when it is reading or writing settings). I have never been able to access the web-interface from my laptop, which is probably the most secure on our network. I was only able to get things working when I accessed it from an old PC we rarely use, and it is only running Windoze (XP) Firewall for security. The print server had to be Ethernet connected to the router while doing the configuration to make it work.

    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.
