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

Router and New Print Server Not Talking?

I have a Netgear WGT624 router in my home office. I have two XP laptops connected wirelessly to it and one XP desktop connected physically. I am trying to install a newly purchased DLink DPR-1260 wireless print server and am not able to do so. Following the QIG instructions, I have the DLink physically connected to one of the ethernet ports on the Netgear for initial install. When I open my Network Places I am supposed to see the print server and be able to proceed from there. I have reviewed all the troubleshooting suggestions for the DLink (checking UPnP settings, DHCP settings on the router) to no avail...

    I have a similar problem, I have a linksys WRT54G router and the Dlink 1260 print server. When first installed it worked correctly for about a month, it was configured with a static IP. About a month later i needed to shut down the Dlink, when reconnected it failed to come back on line. I had the Unit replaced but the new one also did not show on the network. It was connected to another Dlink router and sure enough it worked correctly. Reconnecting it to the the linksys it functioned for a while, now it has gone offline again. Any ideas what could be wrong with the linksys ports?

    I have the same problem - I have a 2Wire 1701HG Gateway and the D-Link DPR 1260 connected to a HP officejet 4215v all-in-one printer. I have been trying to get his to work for over 2 months. Two different people have tried helping set it up with no results. I called tech support and they were no help. They told me that I needed to call my internet provider and have them tell me about the firewall that won't let the DPR through. My 2Wire has all the firewalls turned off for the set up of the D-Link. I do't know what to do from here. PLEASE HELP!!

Netgear WGT624 router won't connect to the internet

I am in the UK and have found through experience the Netgear's seem to work perfect on a BT line (equivalent of AT & T)
but not on the cable.

I would suggest purchasing a Linksys by Cisco WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router as these seem to install in minutes,
saves me hours of wasted time when setting up wireless networks.

Signifcant delay when printing

Your post does not mention all IP addresses in use, and which devices use wireless. That information would be helpful.

Is it possible that you are getting an IP address from a router for your internet access, then when you try to talk to your print server it may be trying to assign an ip address too.

(Sometimes a wired computer also has wireless enabled, which can cause an issue when one ip address has already been received on the wired connection and a wireless connection is also trying to connect.)

Wireless printing

Hi, Through what method would you connect the printer to the netgear? I have looked at the information on both products and the netgear has no Print Server and the Printer has no Ethernet or wireless. If your printer has no ethernet or wireless and your router has no print server then the answer to your question is NO. HOWEVER: You can install the printer on any one of the pc's and then set it up as a SHARED PRINTER. If you would like further information on doing this please let me know and I will post it here. Thanks
