Print server prints non ascci chars and burns though all my paper
When I print on my HP4550 color laser printer I have to baby sit the DP 300U because once the print job is spooled it either works or it doesn't work. And lately it hasn't been working all that often. What happens is that it dumps symbols across the top of each page and goes through then entire stack of paper in the tray before it will quit.
Any Idea how I can prevent this problem? Would greatly appreciate it considering I have been living with it for years now.

ok have you tried changing the settings in the print server usually a printer must be configured on the print server before it can be used if it is on the network try telneting in to it through a web browser like you may a modem
dont' worry about what the d-link site says. its because they haven't tested it. i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.
1. install printer locally via usb and test. 2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it. 3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port. 4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server. 5. test print. should work fine.
I had a similar problem to which i thought i had forgotten the password. Apperently the maximum length of the password the print server accepts is 8. It will show you all the chars you type in change password box but will store only the first 8 chars. If you tried a longer password type in the first 8 chars of your password and try. It worked for me and hope it works for you.
I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port. I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5" ...The default login is at http://192.168.0.10/ user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)
On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax Click the + to add a new printer Select the IP option Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD Type in the Address: 192.168.0.10 Type in the Queue: hp5 Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...' and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP. Save it. Works like magic. ;-)
If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!
I have just setup DP-300U rev.B1 with my Konica Minolta Bizhub 162, the thing is that it doesn't work with USB port connected (paper out), then I tried connecting Bizhub 162 to LPT port, and it works just fine...
