5.0 out of 5 stars Works on my network with win XP Pro and Win 98SE 10 April 2005
By Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Works fine. set up three of them on my network. 3 XP Pro computes computers and one running Win 98SE. Need to change the defauld IP addresss on each additional DP-301P+ after you use the default ip address for the first one (using the web browser to access the units ). For win 98 you have to go read the manual on the CD (a .PDF file) for installing on win 98, and ME ect..and run the included software to install the print client for the network. On win XP all you have to do is set the IP address, look at the port name in the configuration screen, and then use the win XP "install printer wizard" using the ip addrss and port name per the instructions.. I.E. the guy below who could not install it using ME apparantly did not read the Manusl on the CD for specific instructions for installing on a Win 98, or ME computer ..nor did he run the software needed to make it work on Win 98 or ME.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shares printers wireless/wired reliably. Not for digital pix 28 Jan 2005
By G. Cecil - Published on Amazon.com
Got this on sale cheap and put several printers onto wired ports on my Linksys WRT54G home WLAN. The quick-start info is all you need for setup. Works ok under Win XP Pro & Linux Fedora 3 provided printer is powered on before you need it; otherwise an incomplete file is sent and you get pages of garbage from Postscript printers at least. Windows gives useless feedback on print failures, so be prepared for frustration. Note: this has a Centronics-type connector not USB, so is slow for big (digital camera) files. But fine for text and Web graphics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad product support 14 Aug 2005
By Clive Saxor - Published on Amazon.com
I set up everthing according to the Quick install. All setting is correct but i still could not print. I call Technical support,on hold for 20 minuts then told me he was not the right support agent. Back in the loop i go . wait for 30 more minutes 2nd agent told me the same thing. Don't waste your time calling thier support. if it work out of the box great if not return it don't waste ur life like i did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Other boxes out there that are better - this has issues 28 Sep 2012
By A. DeHart - Published on Amazon.com
I've been buying these for a while and have quite a few of them which is unfortunate for me but offers the benefit of some longer term insight and perhaps will allow me to steer others away from this. While at first glance they might appear to work without any issues over the long haul mysterious issues and lack of fixes for what seem like firmware issues prevents me from recommending this.

First, if you try configuring these across a WAN, when they pickup an address via DHCP they will not be visible across the WAN at all. It doesn't appear that it properly uses the default gateway until a manually assigned address is made. This can be done easily through the web interface from a local device. Getting an initial address from DHCP does simplify the config via web browser however which is what prevents it from getting 1-star.

Secondly, it apparently, with UPnP configured, continues to grab a DHCP address even if an address is manually assigned. I don't care for this but you can disable UPnP to prevent this.

Third, you CANNOT reset this to factory defaults or fix a botched config. This is unforgivable. I've had instances where this box is mixed up with another and both were configured already and you can't just reset and start over.

Finally, mysterious issues appear when printing across a WAN. It'll accept jobs but won't print them. I've not been able to resolve this and it has only recently cropped up on a regular basis. I've had this issue in the past but only sporadically but new routers and network gear has seemed to bring this issue to the forefront.

I'd recommend TRENDnet 1-Port Parallel Print Server TE100-P1P as an alternative. I've placed a few of these into situations that were problems with these DLINK units and the problems have all gone away. The TrendNet however doesn't self-configure via DHCP which is unfortunate. The Trendnet unit is less expensive too.

Keep in mind that these and other parallel boxes are ancient by today's standards. Firmware updates are non-existent and most have firmware dated from 2003 or 2005.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lack the hardware reset button 7 Jan 2010
By Tsung - Published on Amazon.com
It lacks a hardware RESET button. Maybe I should give it a four star, because you may not need it at all. For example, if you set a password, and then forget it, it will never ever be recovered, and you cannot change its configuration forever. And it is an expensive unit (about $60).
