This is a step-by-step tutorial of setting up regular printers on a printer server.
The printer server I use for this demonstration is a DPR-1260, D-Link RangeBooster G™ Multifunction Print Server. It’s a both wireless and wired printer server which can connect up to 4 printers using USB connection.
The printer I use for this demonstration is a HP Color LaserJet 2600n. This printer is NOT in the compatible list of printer server, DPR-1260. That means the setup wizard from the printer server does NOT work on this printer. However, this tutorial will provide a much more general way of setting up any printer on a printer server.
The operating system I use for this demonstration is a Microsoft Windows® XP.
I assume that you
know how to setup a single printer to work with your computer
know how to connect and configure the printer server to the router (That requires a little bit TCP/IP knowledge or just read through the user manuals of the printer server and router. It shouldn’t be very difficult.)
Let’s get started.
