I have a problem to connect with my printer server DPR1260 in order to configure the computer. I have to wait a long time ...... to connect over http://local-adresse. I was able to configure two computers (but with the same problem). but now it's impossible to configure the third computer.I tried to ping the printer server so I saw that I lost some packets (25-100%) and it's an random results.
What can be the problem?

Re: Connecting with DPR 1260
1) Signal strength to each computer might be poor (raise the DPR-1260 as high as you can afford or centralize it)
2) There are nearby wireless devices on the same channel (or adjacent channels) as yours. You might not see them, as they are neighbors or businesses, depending where the device is.
3) Wireless is very similar to Real Estate. It might be a shabby house but in the right location it's a sell. Location, Location, Location. (same as #2)
4)Make sure the device is NOT sitting on or at least 6 inches near any other electronic device, including radios, TV, cable modem, etc.
As a quick fix, enter the DPR1260 configuration page and change the channel to either 1, 6 or 11, whichever gives you the best performance.
Then come back here and let us know what you find.

Hi, to make sure your printer is online. Please do these steps:
? On your windows 7 computer, please go to control panel and click printers and faxes. ? From printers and faxes, you can see your printer icon, right click the printer icon and select online. ? Try to print and that should be working.
Chapter 3 - Configuration This section will show you how to configure your new D-Link wireless print server using the web-based configuration utility. Web-based Configuration Utility The IP address of your print server will be automatically assigned by your router. To access the print server’s web-based configuration interface: Windows® XP users: Double-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop. Your print server will be displayed as “DPR-1260: dlinkps-xxxxxx” (where xxxxxx is the last 6 characters of your print server’s MAC address). If you do not see the print server or have UPnP enabled, please refer to page 13. Windows® 2000 users: You will need to write down the MAC address located on the bottom of the print server (E.G. 00-54-23-45-f5-b6). Open a web browser and enter the following: http://dlinkps-XXXXXX XXXXXX = the last six characters of your MAC address. Note: Some printer software features may not work while connected to the print server such as ink level display.
This will prove the print server is working. If you can not access the web interface then it may not be getting an address from the router
I had the same problem. After many hours of trial and error, I got two XP laptops and a Vista desktops configured. Be sure to use the latest firmware from Dlink. Disable all s/w firewalls. In my case Norton Firewall from Yahoo was a problem. The Vista PC was configured to print within 30 mins and the XPs took a while. I couldn't get the print server to appear in the My Network Places A couple of the guys who left comments on the product at Newegg actually have a good solution. The solution involves setting the printers up as local printers with standard TCP/IP ports that point to the IP address or the URL ("dlink-"6_last_digits_of_MAC_ID) and USB port number 9100-9103. You can google how to set up local printers w/ TCP/IP connections with USB ports on the internet. Note the Scanner will not be recognized but at least you can print on MF4150.
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
I was having the same problem when I added a Windows Vista PC to my home network. My older XP systems workd fine, but the Vista system would keep printing. The following fix worked forme in vista, may work in XP also.
1. First, be sure you have the latest firmware in your DPR1260. Version 1.24 is what I am using.
2. From the printer window (or via controlm panel) select your printer, then select Properties (either right click, or from the menu via File-Properties)
3. In the Properties Window, select the Ports tab. You should see your printer highlighted and checked, under the port heading next to thcheck box you'll see IP_192.168.x.x, under descriptio Standard TCP/IP Port, and undr Printer, the name of your printer.
4. Click the "Configure Port" button, be sure "LPR" is selected, not "RAW". Under LPR Settings, check that the "Queue Name" matches that in our DPR1260 status screen, and be sure SNMP Status Enabled is not checked.
The problem on my Vista machine went away when I changed from "RAW" to "LPR" settings.
You need to connect the second printer to your print server then install the printer driver to your computers. If your print server has a printserver driver, run that so it will automatically find the new printer for you.
1) Ensure you've run the D-Link supplied automatic configuration wizard.
2) Also ensure you have "Netbios over TCP/IP" enabled in your network settings.
3)Ensure you turn off "Bidirectional Printing" in the Ports tab and "Enabled Advanced printing features" in the advanced tab, for testing purposes.
I know the printer connectivity is officially supported by D-Link (thru an independent 3rd party test facility) but it seems they may have had NetBeui installed, which is an outdated networking protocol.
Try the first 3 options I gave, if they don't work, then let me know.
