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

2 Answers

HP LP1020 I just bought a DRP-1260. When connecting my 2 printers - a somewhat older HP DJ5150 - a brand new HP LJ 1020 Both printers got detected correct by the print server. But the DJ got status ready while the LJ 1020 got status Offline. Using the installation exe which you download from the configuration page of the print server, I was able to install both printers. In windows they both appear online. On the status page of the print server, the DJ appears ready while the LJ 1020 appears Offline. When trying to print, the DJ works fine, while the LJ1020 doesn't do anything. Switching my LJ on and off doesn't seem to work. To the print server it is offline. Anyone got this working with a LJ 1020? I mailed to get support from Dlink but as for now they only told me that it is not on their compatibility list. Even though i found a list of compatible printers on the website of dlink taiwan on which the LJ1020 is said to be compatible. Thx

    Having same issue with a HP Laserjet 1020. I haven't found a fix either. It's like you said, if you connect the printer to the PC via USB first and then immediately connect it to the print server it works. ...that is until the printer or print server gets power cycled.

It seems that I found an imperfect solution. When you intall the printer on your PC and print a testpage, the firmware is sent from PC to printer and is stored in the printers internal memory. When you unplug your printer from your pc and plug it in on your printserver it should work fine as the firmware has been loaded alraedy. You can't switch of the printer nor the printserver or the firmware needs to be uploaded again via your printer. There is no way at the moment to load the firmware upon booting of the printer by the print server. Hopefully this issue will get resolved in the near future.

This can be done i several ways.
If your printer is a network-model, you can enter the printers IP-address into your favorite web-browser and set the settings as you want from the web-interface.If your printer is a USB-model, you have to download the software for the LaserJet 1020. This package contains a software called Toolbox, and that's the software you need to set proper settings in your tray. Follow the link for downloading the Toolbox-package.
