D-LINK DP-300U Printer Server (2 parallel, 1 usb)
Posted on 2006-11-10
I am attempting to setup a D-LINK Print Server... It's been in the box for over a year, maybe two and I just cracked the seal yesterday. The default IP is 192.168.0.10 however I am unable to discover the unit on the network. I have setup the router to the correct IP and subnet (which is 255.255.255.0 as recommended), I have also tried a cross over cable linking the Print Server directly to my laptop. I have tested the voltage out of the transformer and it is 5v as stated on the unit and xfmr.
I am at a loss... it mentions IPX protocols as well as TCP/IP and I'm wondering if by default it uses IPX instead (it doesn't say this but I have tried everything else). I know in the past, when setting up a print server that they can be rather flaky or stubborn so that's why I haven't scrapped it yet.
btw, I have tried accessing via the print server software that came with it as well as 192.168.0.10 through IE.
Any idea or suggestions are welcome! I hate to toss it out because it's worth $60-$70 bucks if I have to replace it.
