Follow up to my first review

Mark M., Newegg
11 August 2010
  • Summary: Works fine from my laptop (2nd computer) as well. In fact, the D-Link printers were already in the printers and device menu . So all is good. Basically this thing works flawlessly.
  • Pros: see my review - Canon MP600 & Epson PictureMate, Win 7 x64
  • Cons: none

It works

Mark M., Newegg
11 August 2010
  • Summary: So, I read a lot of the reviews and was a little hesitant to buy, but I needed a multi-port wireless print server, and the price was right. I'm on Win7 64 using a Canon MP600 and Epson PictureMate Deluxe. After getting no signal, I realized I had entered the print server's MAC address incorrectly.
  • Pros: Small, wireless, 4 ports.
  • Cons: Instructions could provide more detail; interface seems slow; so far doesn't work with my scanner.

Great for printing, not so much for scanning

Anton K., Newegg
16 June 2010
  • Summary: Tech support was helpful but a bit tedious. PROTIP: asking for name, telephone, E-mail, date and time of purchase is a bit aggravating when trying to troubleshoot scanning issues with a looming deadline. Just answer my questions, we don't need to establish a relationship...
  • Pros: Connects up to 4 printers, relatively easy set up, informative LED's, decent software. Eased my pain of having to constantly troubleshoot printer drivers and network issues in a mixed XP/Vista/7 environment.
  • Cons: Set up instructions can be misleading, especially to a novice. Auto-detection of print server failed in Windows Vista and 7, requiring the use of browser-based set up (as if it was Win2000). The BIGGEST gotcha, however, is the lack of scanning support for several major printers. Only the printers...

My review

James R., Newegg
16 June 2010
  • Summary: Price is good for outcome. Will now try to add my scanner.
  • Pros: Once the firmware was updated and printer added it has worked. I wouldn't say great as this morning it was offline although I simply restarted the printer. Unsure if that is what fixed it.
  • Cons: To add a Vista PC it is a manual process. Unsure about Windows 7 but should find out this week.

User Review

RJ M., Newegg
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Definitely flash to the latest firmware when you get this, it will make a difference.
  • Pros: Worked as advertised. Connected both my printers remotely to my computer. Setup was relatively easy.
  • Cons: I couldn't enable wireless because the space to input the password wasn't long enough to hold my WPA2 password. My HP PSC 1315 printer will not print. The scanner works, and I can print a test page but the actual printing will not work. My Epson printer worked fine first time.

Good little Server

Peter B., Newegg
22 January 2010
  • Summary: Watch out, connecting to this device with jumbo frames enabled over a gigabit network will cause it to lock up, even if your wired gigabit pc is connecting to it through a router wirelessly.
  • Pros: Easy to setup, 4 usb ports, wirless connectivity and bridging to ethernet port a nice plus.
  • Cons: limited all in one printer support, nothing like having a usb cable hooked directly to your all in 1 printer.

Good choice so far

Steven T., Newegg
23 November 2009
  • Summary: So far my only complaint is how this thing apparently deals with having a wired and wireless network connection. Mine came out of the box with firmware revision 1.21. Using a wired connection to configure the radio to connect wirelessly went fine.
  • Pros: UPnP discovery, wireless G with support for WPA2, scanning support (check the compatibility list on D-Link's web site)
  • Cons: Initial set-up marred by constant network drops - solution below.

Wireless, use WPA2-PSK(AES)

Anonymous, Newegg
24 October 2009
  • Pros: This unit works great with firmware 1.24 and either wired or wireless with WPA2-PSK(AES). I have HP Photosmart C5550 (scanning supported by DPR-1260) and Canon imageCLASS MF3240 (scanning not supported by DPR-1260). Quite happy with the unit once it is working properly.
  • Cons: Do not use WPA-PSK as DPR-1260 will keep on dropping the wireless connections.

Works with unsupported

Anonymous, Newegg
17 October 2009
  • Summary: Didn't call D-Link tech spt or Epson tech spt.
  • Pros: Works with stuff not explicitly supported: Vista Business SP2, Epson R260, Samsung ML-2010. IMPORTANT to upgrade DPR-1260 to latest firmware, install latest printer drivers before configuring. Despite others' experience, no problems with XP Pro SP3, WPA2 TPIK, DHCP.
  • Cons: Can't get status return: Low Ink, out of paper, etc
