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.
Do you mean "packets"? Not to be a smart-***, but you can unplug the network cable, then wait for the printing device (you computer) to error out, and then cancel the print job. Then plug the print server back in.
Unplug the power to the HP Jetdirect 170x, press and hold the test button. while pressing the test button, plug the power cord back into the device and continue holding the test button for another 5 seconds.
Here's a few troubleshooting steps that should help you out.
1. Are you getting a link light? If not, check the cable and the switch - if these are OK then you have a bad JetDirect.
2. Print a test sheet from the 750 and check the IP configuration. Be sure that you have an IP address that is on the same subnet as the computer you want to print from. If not, then you either need to configure an appropriate static IP or configure DHCP for the MIO and make sure it is working.
3. Once you have the IP worked out, try to ping the MIO from your PC. You can also try to connect to the MIO using the embedded web server if the firmware is recent enough. If either of these work then you should be in good shape. Try to re-install and see if it works.
One last thing, if you are printing directly to the plotter from the client computer without using a print server then one part of the setup is non-intuitive. When you are asked if the printer is local or network, you have to select "local" even though this is clearly not the case. Then when you get to choose a port, create a new TCP port.
Good luck and if the above doesn't help, post an update and we'll take it from there.
Unplug it over night. try it again tomorrow. If it still shows all green its fried. It there a reset button anywhere on it? Try holding it down(if there is) while plugging it in. Keep the reset depressed for 30 seconds or so. Otherwise no bueno.
Let me know what happens.
Thanks. I actually found out that it had never been configured - here is the standard factory access info:
All Oki network printing devices support configuration changes via a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. When applying a configuration change to a device the user is prompted for a user name and password. The following details should be entered:
User Name: root
Password: last six digits of the MAC address*
*You can find the MAC address on the network
summary web page or by printing off a menu
from the printer.
