Question about D-Link DP 300U (DP-300U) Print Server

1 Answer

Printer connected but not printing

We have a small network in a construction trailer office and have one printer connected to the D-link PD-300U. Both the parallel cable and USB for the same printer are plugged in but none of the port lights are on and the printer does not print. We have other printers on the network not connected to the D-link that do work. What do I need to do to get the port lights to turn on when the printer is connected and get the printer to work?

Hello,
If your printer has a network port you should be using the network adapter.
Otherwise you want to make sure you connect the printer with a USB cable to the appropriate port on the D-Link.
Once the USB cable is connected you should be able to add the printer from your computer as a shared printer.
You will not normally see any activity lights on your router for the USB connection because it does not send or receive information the same way the LAN cables will.
I do recommend a LAN cable though as it works much better with routers. If your printer does not have one I would look into getting a network printer.
Thanks,
Pat

DLINK DP-300U. Desktop shows printer offline, Laptop prints OK.


First thing.. plug printer directly into PC.. does it work? .. if so its is a port setting. If now it is the device config on PC

If Port Setting Issues.. are you going through any other devices on the network or is you firewall blocking the IP.

If device Config issue check to see it is setup up as an IP Port not a normal local port

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!!

    DLink DP-300U Print Server


    What is the IP of the Print Server and the Printer itself? They have to be on a 'flat network' or the gateways of the the 'adjacent' networks have to be defined as a neighborhood.
