Question about Computers & Internet

4 Answers

I want to connect my new printer Samsung CLX 3175 (multitasking) with Print Server D-Link DP-300U. Is it possible? Printer is not on the list of this Print Server. Right now, I have connected Samsung ML-1210, which is also not on the list and have no problems. According to literature, I will lose the scanner capabilities. Is there a way around? For example when using scanner to connect USB directly to the computer. Or is it possible to have both connections??

    You didn't answer if the printer will work with the print server I have.

    I also assume, when scanning, I can connect printer directly to the computer and use direct driver, as with using print server I have to create another one.



    Thanks

No, it will not work, language incompatibility: the router uses PJL, the printer SPL-C.

You can use only 1 at a time.But you can exploit on of it's feature for the solution of your problem the usb simplicity feature
Print quickly - without using a PC - by connecting any PictBridge™ camera or phone directly to the printer. You can also connect USB memory to the printer and print instantly. Even when you don't have access to a PC, you can save what you scanned directly to a USB memory.

in 1 word you cannot have 2 connections

    Here are some basic tools to consider.
    1. Connection should be made via the "client" PC. You can do this by
    setting up the printer on the "client" PC. This can help install all the
    required printer drivers and software for the process. You have to
    click "Properties" and "shared" when you reconnect to the "host". After
    that, you should click on "My Network Places" on the client PC and then
    the printers will appear shared. Click on the printer icon for the
    installation process.

    2. Setting up a LAN is also required. Use a network
    adapter
    then view the connection status. To set it up to LAN, you
    just need to double click over "Network Connection" and right click over
    the LAN that you're using.

    3. You can also use a printer switch. This will make a connection
    between 2 PCs and the printer. A crossover cable is also a good choice.

    4. A print server can also help. This will only function with the
    help of a router so make sure you also have one. Just in case you don't
    have a router, the PSUS4 server will help. This will automatically
    assign a static IP on the print server and the network card. It is also
    important to note that print servers may not work if you are using multifunctional
    printers
    .

    In instances when you have no network ports available, you can still
    establish printing
    network connections between two PCs
    . In this case, a parallel port
    adapter or USB cables will serve your needs.

Even if the printer is not listed on the compatible devices with that print server there;s big chance that you can still make it work with it just like your other printer.

Since the print server that you have is not made to work with multi function printer the other features will not work while connected to the server. But if you want to use those feaures while connected to a server you need to get print server made for multi function printer.

    I have work with different print server and with different printer and even if the printer is not listed under the compatible list , they also work in some instance , So to make a printer that is not listed on the compatibility test is a trial and error. One of the best way to make a printer work with a server that are listed compatible is by using TCP/IP via LPR.

Indeed in the network you will loose the scanning feature..but not in the way they refer to it ...but the issue is if you scan something you will have to connect the usb cable to download the file ..cause the scanner has not the possibility to transmit the data to a certain computer ...or ip address..cause the unit can not transmit data ..does not have the capability of a computer to select a certain address in the network ...or to transmit them to all at once...the printing is the other way around in data transmitting ..and the computing is done in the pc...but the scanner has not this possibility ...in scanner case the data flow is the other way ...got it ?? but of course...without changing any settings..if you have near it a computer with the driver installed you can alway use it ..Probably you will have to unplug it from the network while doing it ..

    for scanning you can use a usb stick to store the data and never disconnect the printer ..But the issue will be cause I am not sure this model has a network card ...If the network you have requires a card ..Im not sure if you will be able to connect it ..

  • Catalin Turcu
    Catalin Turcu Oct 01, 2010

    you can try ..cause if you conect it to a printer server ..it may communicate with it even if it doesn't have a lan card ..

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!!

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server


I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at http://192.168.0.10/ user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address: 192.168.0.10
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

To install hP psc 1315 on the D-link dp-300u


You might try to browse to that disk and see if there are any setup files (usually named setup.exe or install.exe). I've seen some drivers don't need to be installed by an installation program not by the new hardware wizard.

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.
