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

Router and New Print Server Not Talking?

I have a Netgear WGT624 router in my home office. I have two XP laptops connected wirelessly to it and one XP desktop connected physically. I am trying to install a newly purchased DLink DPR-1260 wireless print server and am not able to do so. Following the QIG instructions, I have the DLink physically connected to one of the ethernet ports on the Netgear for initial install. When I open my Network Places I am supposed to see the print server and be able to proceed from there. I have reviewed all the troubleshooting suggestions for the DLink (checking UPnP settings, DHCP settings on the router) to no avail...
Help!?

    I have a similar problem, I have a linksys WRT54G router and the Dlink 1260 print server. When first installed it worked correctly for about a month, it was configured with a static IP. About a month later i needed to shut down the Dlink, when reconnected it failed to come back on line. I had the Unit replaced but the new one also did not show on the network. It was connected to another Dlink router and sure enough it worked correctly. Reconnecting it to the the linksys it functioned for a while, now it has gone offline again. Any ideas what could be wrong with the linksys ports?

    I have the same problem - I have a 2Wire 1701HG Gateway and the D-Link DPR 1260 connected to a HP officejet 4215v all-in-one printer. I have been trying to get his to work for over 2 months. Two different people have tried helping set it up with no results. I called tech support and they were no help. They told me that I needed to call my internet provider and have them tell me about the firewall that won't let the DPR through. My 2Wire has all the firewalls turned off for the set up of the D-Link. I do't know what to do from here. PLEASE HELP!!

Password on wireless router


OK, You listed this under a print server router. I looked up the DP 300 print Server router and restricting access to the router is not an option. If you are actually talking about your Wireless router for your home network you need to look in the user manual or access the router and go through the configuration pages for the wireless settings and set Security to on and then Select either WEP or WPA as the security format, which ever is supported by your computer, then enter a Security Key. The Key can be anything as long as all devices that are going to use the wireless have that same key entered with the same security method selected. Your user manual should explain better where these option are located.

How to connect a netfear router to a dell computer


I assume the Netgear is a wireless router and you want to connect to the router using a wireless connection.
Make sure the DELL computer wireless card is installed with the latest wireless card driver.
The Netgear router needs to be configured with the wireless settings ie SSID and encryption etc.
Next the wireless card needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.
For instructions on securing and configuring the wireless router and wireless card please click in this link :-

How do I connect with my WGPS606 if there is no setup cd and the default ip does not work? My router has encryption and the WGPS needs the info.


you need to set your print server for dhcp, you need to log in and verify the settings OR just set it back to default because dhcp is default. gl

Netgear Wireless print server WGP5606


Hoopers statement is generally correct, but INCOMPLETE in this case. It cannot be used as a router, because this device has no input for the network connection from your cable modem or other broadband device. HOWEVER, this device is also a wireless bridge. That is, you can use it as a router to connect multiple computers in your SOHO network (but not to the broadband device) and you can use it to wirelessly route a remotely located computer or device, such as a PS3, a TIVO box, etc. that cannot be provided with a wireless network adaptor, to a wireless router that is connnected to your broadband device.

Signifcant delay when printing


Your post does not mention all IP addresses in use, and which devices use wireless. That information would be helpful.

Is it possible that you are getting an IP address from a router for your internet access, then when you try to talk to your print server it may be trying to assign an ip address too.

(Sometimes a wired computer also has wireless enabled, which can cause an issue when one ip address has already been received on the wired connection and a wireless connection is also trying to connect.)
