It's in the quick installation guide, which is freely downloadable from their web site. Top of page #3...
"The factory default IP address of the DP-301U is 192.168.0.10."

Start > Devices & Printers > Add a Printer > Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer
> The printer I want isn't listed (unless it is!) > Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname
> Device Type = Autodetect / Hostname or IP address: 192.168.XXX.XXX (The 1260's IP assigned by
your router - make it a static IP beforehand) / Port name: [the autofill IP is fine] > Additional port
information required = Standard "Network Print Server (2 ports - USB)" > Select the driver for the printer
you want to use...
Once the install is complete go to the Devices and Printers screen and click on the new printer.
Click Customize your Printer, change the name if you prefer and then on the ports tab. Mine is
set to Protocol "Raw", Port Number 9100, Community Name "public". The only other thing I may be
doing differently is that I have set the printer to auto-show the print preview before printing.
Yes, its an additional click but it seemed to have made all the difference in my case. It also
gives you the chance to correct something like printing a second page with just a header URL, etc.
I realize that time is a luxury and not everyone has a lot of it, especially for trivial tasks
like addressing antiquated equipment compatibility issues after an upgrade, but I firmly believe
if you say can't enough, you WON'T. But for those who enjoy a challenge occasionally I hope this
points you in the right direction. Good luck
