My Linksys Wireless Print Server died. Replaced it with a wireless DLINK DPR-1260. I have it setup on all the client PCs. The setup on it is different from Linksys where the Dlink requires you to open up a portal via the weblink and run the setup which pushes down a printer setup file to run the print server binding agent to the printer drivers already installed on the client machine...

It does not work on the 64-bit (the same process about fails when ran) and Dlink does not provide a 64-bit print server. Here is my question. We know all the info for the dlink print server since it is active, has an IP address, and we know the host name.

What I think can happen and I do not know how to do it is manually add the printer. But in the adding there are so many options, Local or network, port, type of port, etc. Can some provide me the steps to manually setup up the Dlink or a print server?

PS. The 64-bit drivers for the printer are already installed on the client and works as did with the Linksys and can be see as a printer option in Add Printers if I knew the proper steps to connect it to the Dlink?

OS: Windows XP 64-bit

Perhaps this set of manual install instructions will help. It is for a Linksys, but the process is the same. The only difference may be how to get the server to print out it's settings:

This worked! Only thing different I did not have to use LPR just left it on the general network card option...but I know this was not an exact guide for the DLINK but it was 99% of it.

Thx again...we are printing on the 64-bit PC now.
