Question about D-Link DI-704UP - 4-Port Broadband Router Plus USB Print Server [ DI-704UP ] (109457)

1 Answer

Printer not recognised by the print server

I changed from DI 704P (serial printer port) to a second hand DI 704UP (USB printer port) but did not get the print server software with the second hand router/print server
I tried using the print server from the 704P (serial printer port) but the print server will not recognise the printer.
Is the print server software for the USB printer port of the DI-704UP different and where may I get the print server software for it? So far I have searched for it without success

SOURCE: Add di-704p to an existing network

What you want to do should be quite easy:

1. Just connect one of the LAN ports of the DI-704P to a LAN port of your WRT54G. Try using a standard network cable. If the port status lights does not turn on on both sides when you connect the cable, use a "crossover" cable. Important: leave the DI-704P WAN port empty.

2. Disable the DHCP server on your DI-704P, your WRT54G will be the DHCP server.

3. Assign a static IP address to you DI-704P, different from your WRT54G. Example, if your WRT54G has 192.168.2.1, you may assign 192.168.2.4 to your DI-704P. Make sure that the IP address you assign is outside the DHCP range configured in your WRT54G and that the subnet mask is identical on both.
You will then be able to use your print server from any wired and wireless computer and the remaining LAN ports both on the WRT54G and DI-704P.

Can not identify usb printer


these print servers have a very limited range of printers they can detect. doesn't mean it won't work.

heres how i got my DP 301U to work with my HP1020 on 2 different workstations.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

cheers!!

Vista Compatibility with DI-704P


The print server software does not need to be installed in order to print to the printer attached to the 704P from Vista. I went out to D-LINK's website and there are step-by-step instructions for configuring port 192.168.0.1 and associating a printer with that port.

See the following link:
http://support.dlink.com/faq/print.asp?productid=794

These instructions are for 2000/XP but they are very similiar to what you need to do for Windows Vista. I tried it and it worked fine. It did take me several tries however, as I should have read through the steps completely first.
