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

2 Answers

DPR-1260, HP All in one 2210, and IE7

I just bought the DPR 1260 on reccomendation from someone... the printer was recognized without issue, but when i tried to scan the scanner would hang. I updated the firmware to the v1.21 and then one of my XP workstations couldn't print, and when i would go to the web console, there were IE errors all over the place(i can't change languages, no devices were detected, etc). The wierd thing is every other PC on my network was fine. I have tried all four firmwares with a varying degree of success. I am at 1.12 now, so my primary workstation could print...but i still can't scan from it..I get "low memory please try again later" errors. Any thoughts? this is set up wired...wireless is off as i already have a wireless network setup.

    I've installed a DPR-1260 wireless print router. It recognises and operates my Canon PIXMA iP4500 printer OK, but the DPR-1260 sees the Canon MF4150 as a fax only, and neither the printer or scanner drivers. I know the MF4100 series isn't one of the 'tested' printers for the DPR-1260 router. Can you suggest how to get the DPR1260 to recognise at least the printer function of the Canon MF4150?

Try to upgrade the firmware revision to the last one (1.21).

Canon Pixma MP530 multifunction printer comes up as a fax

This is absolutely the right solution. I used this for my Canon MP780 printer under Vista, as well. I want to include all of the keywords here. It is important to note that the DPR-1260 shipped with Firmware Version 1.12 cannot be seen by Visa until it is upgraded with the Version 1.21 firmware, but after downgrading back to the Version 1.12 firmware, the DPR-1260 is still visible and it now recognizes my Canon MP780 multifunction printer as a printer and not as a fax machine. I plan to post this same solution to other sites, so that hopefully others can get their DPRs working again. Whew!
