    Print Server Problems


    I have a problem with my Dlink print server (DP 300U).

    I set up the printer as a local printer, printing through a TCP/IP port.

    The setup went well, and i am able to print through port (the hardcoded default for the print server), immediately after the setup.

    However, overtime, it seems as is the server goes into a "sleep mode" and I have to power cycle it to accept print jobs.

    What could be the problem? Here is my home network setup:

    -- D link wireless router (D624) hard wired to my desktop
    -- Laptop computer (with internal Intel wireless card) connecting to the D624.

    I would be very grateful if you could send me some pointers....

    cheers, Emma

    Did you ever get this resolved? I am having exactly the same problem. The router stays awake for only about 10 minutes at a time. I have a few posts out there in the ether, so if I get any responses, I'll forward them.

    Unhappy disconnects

    I to have the same problem. We purchased 20 of these print servers and so far have experienced the same problem on all we have tested. We are connecting to Dell 1100 and 1110 printers. I think the hang coinsides with the sleep (power save mode) but continues even if this is disabled. The units wok fine with HP laserjet 2015. I to would appreciate any info ayone has on this problem.
