D Link DI-824VUP Wireless Router: Print Server Locks Up

Hi,

Print jobs that are sent to this wireless router print server will often not complete.  The print job first says "printing", then "error"  Sometimes it is necessary to reboot the our IBM T41 laptops  to clear the print job.  

This problem is not specific to a laptop or printer..I have tried different printers and laptops.

The problem is cleared by powering off the wireless modem.  I am always able to print for awhile after powering the router/print server off and then on.

What should I check?  Should I be thinking RMA?

Thanks

Hi jseverson,

I suggest you call dlink and explain the problem.  They may be able to give you specific help.  It does indeed sound like a problem with the wireless router, however if it is a configuration problem or RMA, I am unsure.

There is this on the dlink site if you have not already tried it

Print Server - Win 2K/XP  
If you are using Windows XP or 2000 and have problems printing using the D-Link print server software, then you can try printing with LPR.

Step 1 Go to Start>Settings>Printers>Add New Printer
(WinXP - Start>Printers and Faxes>Add a Printer).

Step 2 Select Local Printer.

Step 3 Create a New Port and select Standard TCP/IP port.

Step 4 The printer name/IP address is the IP of the router (192.168.0.1). Leave the port name with the default name.

Step 5 You will get a message saying that additional port information required.

Step 6 Select Custom (WinXP - Select Custom>Settings).

Step 7 Set Protocol to LPR.

Step 8 For the LPR Settings, queue name is lp. It is case sensitive! (LP lower-case). Check the box to Enable LPR Byte Counting.

Step 9 Select OK>Finish.

Step 10 Continue with the Add Printer Wizard accepting the default values to finish loading the printer drivers.
