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.

My DPR-1260 arrived yesterday and I set it up easily in minutes on both Windows 7 (32-bit Pro) and XP SP3 with 3 printers attached. So far I have only tried wired connection. Wi-fi may be more problematical. Printers are Brother HL-2040, HL-2140 and Samsung CLP-300. Could not get it to recognize my Canon Lide 25 scanner
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
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.
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
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.
