Question about D-Link RangeBooster G DPR-1260 (DPR1260) Print Server

1 Answer

Can't finish printing first page of wireless print

I print via NetGear RangeMax WPN824 v2 router and D-Link DPR-1260 print server to HP OfficeJet 5610 All-in-one.

The last time I successfully did so was June 4, 2008. Before then, for a year, I had no problems. Since then, every print I’ve tried hangs up just as the printer is a line or two from finishing a first page.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A-205 (laptop) with Vista Ultimate. I have tried to re-install the D-Link many times.

My wife continues to print problem-free from an older Lenovo XP machine, via the same set-up.

The only things that had changed on my machine since my June 4, 2008 successful print are a Windows Defender Definition Update and my renewal of Trend Micro’s Anti-Virus and Webroot’s Anti-Spy. I of course cannot remove the Defender Definition Update, but at TrenMicro’s & Webroot’s suggestions, I have disabled my Anti-Spy and Anti-Virus for attempts of D-Link re-install. No success!

I have also tried the re-install with and without the WinVista Service Pack 1.

I would very much like to restore my wireless printing from the WinVista machine with as little cost as possible.

    Nevermind. Just acquire instructions from D-Link to manually install the server-printer combo.

You should have your DSR 1260 connected via cable to your router. Open a browser. Go to http://dlink-xxxxx (xxxx=last 6 digits of your 1260's MAC address) or http://192.168.0.10. The DSR 1260 web config screen will open. Click on the Setup tab (top row). Then click on Wireless Setting on the left hand column menu. Select settings based on your router's setting, Typically: Wireless Setting: On; Network Name: choose from drop down, if not there, type your router name in; Wireless Mode: Infrastructure; SuperG Mode: same as your router; Security: same as your router. Then Save.

Remove the cable connection of your 1260 and your router. Then go to Status in the web config. Click on Wireless. It should now show your router details. That's it.

Dpr-1260 onkly works when connected by ethernet cable


dpr-1260 searching for ap and connected keeps changing back and forth when I refresh.On dpr-1260 if status of wireless keeps changing from searching and connected, change wireless to WPA, instead of WPA2. even if you have WPA2 setup (as I did), if you choose WPA it will stay connected.

Problem with DPR-1260


this kind of problem occurs in dlink router sometimes & after some time router stop responding after 10 -15 min & once u reboot the router it again start work for a while. the best solution to this problem is to reset the router back to its factory defualt settings u can do this by press the reset button on the back on the router ( it looks like a small hole u have to use a pin for press that button) once u have reset the router to factory default settings just reconfig the router & i am sure it will start working fine in case u still face the same problem just contact D-link or send me the details about the problem & the physical setup of ur router & printer etc

DPR-1260 with Epson CX6600 & Dymo Duo


The DPR-1260 is pretty easy to configure and works well with my HP Laser 1012, HP Photosmart 8250, and HP OfficeJet 5610. The Operating System on the computer is what matters... as long as it's running Windows XP, Vista, or a server edition like Win2003, you should be fine. I can't speak to the Mac environment, as I don't have any experience there. As for the Dymo Duo, I can't tell you how well it'll work in this environment, but based on my experience with it and many other print servers that I've tried, I can't think of a better configuration to try. Personally, I would recommend the DPR-1260 to anyone... just make sure you follow the installation instructions in the users manual carefully, and you can't go wrong. I love mine, hopefully you'll enjoy yours as well.

DPR-1260 ... prints but cannot access web config page


To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
