    The D-Link DP-301U Print Server does *not* have a password by default. If you have come into the possession of one and it is password protected, then it is likely that the previous owner added a password.
    In order to bypass it and reset the Print Server, while the device is powered on, you will have to hold down the RESET button on the back using a paper clip for 10 seconds.

    Hello and welcome to fixya.

    First off, I would like to provide you a link with the print server's manual to download it directly and have it as spare.

    The printer you are trying to install is a laser printer (black/white only) and probably a bit old model.
    Therefore, if you are trying to print from your computer over ethernet, and you have windows vista or 7 (64 or 32bit accordingly) you might have the inappropriate drivers for either the print server or the printer. You can find all of the HP printer's drivers HERE. Select carefully based on your OS.

    As a SIDENOTE: If you just need the drivers installed and there are only larger setup execut. files available, you can use 7zip or winace to open up the *.exe file and navigate to the appropriate folder and extract only that one to your computer and install the driver(s) from there.


    The D-Link DP-301U print server drivers are available HERE. Default username and password for the management console of the print server can be found at pdf manual page 25. The url to access the administration console is dlink-******,where the asterisks stand for the last 6 digits of the print server MAC address.


    Overall, not to make things over-complicated (150+ PDF user manual pages) you need to do the following:

    1. Install the appropriate drivers of your hp printer on the computer that will have also print serv. softare installed.
    2. Install the appropriate software/drivers of the dlink print server on the same computer.
    3. Plugin the usb cable of your printer to the print server's USB port.
    4. Plugin the ethernet cable of your print server port to the ethernet port of your home router/switch.
    5. Setup Fixed IP settings for your print server configuration (page 20 on the manual).

    Let me know how that went. I believe you will manage to do it that way quite easily.

    Thanks.

    Port 80 may be open behind the router to network B, but the ports used for printing may not. See if the router is blocking any ports and disable this feature for printing ports or all ports if possible.
    Alternatively, try setting up a virtual server on the bridging router that points to the static ip address of your printer on network A.
    Hope this helps. -Daniel

    YOU MAY NEED TO UPDATE THE DEVICES INTERNAL FIRMWARE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE USING 64 BIT. ALSO WINDOWS 7 DOES NOT LIKE DEVICES THAT OPERATE WITHOUT PASSWORDS, SO MAKE SURE YOUR WIRELESS SECURITY SETTINGS ARE CORRECT. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO BROWSE YOUR COMPUTER NETWORK AND SEE THE DP301. IF NOT, MAKE SURE YOUR WINDOWS 7 PC IS ON THE SAME WORKGROUP. THANKS

    Print Server doesnt require driver. Connect the printer to the computer directly and check if it is printing. The drivers for the printer will be loaded and you will be able to print. Then connect the printer to Print server and you will be able to print. If it is still not printing, you have to create an LPR port for the printer driver

    One of the main difference between this tow printer is the DPR1020 is made to work with all printer including those multi function printers , because this old DP301U was a older version of print server that don't support those new multi function printers features like scanning and fax. So if you have a multi function printer I will advice you to get the DPR1020 so all features of that printer will work behind this print server.
