Print Server Dlink DP-300U not printing
Posted on 2007-03-19
I have a Dlink DP-300U print server. Before I used to print documents from it from all the three computers on the network but now not even one can print. Strangely I can print only when I give a static address [in the range of the web configuration of the print server] instead of a DHCP adress in the TC/IP properties of my lancard. I wish that it should print as before when I had given the computer a DHCP address. Giving a static address to the computer wil create other problems.
I cannot go on the web browser of the print server by typing the default 192.168.0.10 IP address. The printer HP 1320 is connected to the parallel port LPT1 of the server printer but there is no light indicating that is so. I believe before a light used to turn on. The print server software PSAdmin indicates that the printer is on line at LPT1.
However the power light and the link light are lit on the server printer.
I tried to reset the print server but it created more problems. At present the software shows a printer server PS-9CDE12 but after reset button is pressed no print server could be seen in spite of adding a new printer after deleting the old one and giving the same quque line PS-9CDE12. This is
perhaps because I cannot access the web configuration browser.
Guidance is sought whether the server printer can be configured as before so that my documents can print once again or it has become defective and needs to be changed/repaired.
