Customer Reviews:

It is a good product, only if you know how to configure it.


I got this product recently, before I purchased it, I viewed some negative reviews on this DP-311P, but I still bought it and tried it out, it took me only
about 10 minutes to finish. The user manual sucks, doesn’t tell you very detailed what to do with different network situation, that is why some customers
don’t know what to do if they are not using D-Link wireless router. First, you need to change the IP address on one of your computers which has a
wireless adapter to 192.168.0.XX with subnet mask 255.255.255.0 which means change the computer’s IP same as DP-311P default IP scheme, so you
can communicate with it. Remember before you do it, set the little switch on the back of 311P to “configure” position. After you changed the computer’s
IP, use either the wireless adapter connection wizard, or use ad-hoc to connect to 311P, then start IE/browser to access 192.168.0.10, you will see the
configuration interface, from there you change the network settings to your existing network scheme (e.g. change IP address to 192.168.1.10 if you have
Linksys router…), as well as the wireless settings. Some customers said 128bit encription deson’t work, you have to change everything to 64bit, that is
not correct. I sucessfully set it to use 128bit without any problem. Instead of using browswer to access the interface, you can also install the ps admin
software come with the CD, start the program, it will find the server, you will be able to change all above settings within the program interface. After
finish, remember set the back switch to “normal” position. Now, change your computer’s IP back to original. Now your Print server should be ready to
use. To add the printer, go to control panel and add printer from there, change the port to D-Link printer port and specify the IP address you gave the
print server, such as 192.168.1.10. Print a test page, you are done. It is very easy.

Instructions for Mac Users


This is a good product, but the instructions are not so great. In fact, Mac users don’t get any instructions. This annoyed me, so I figured it out for myself.
Here are my instructions for Mac users:

Print server - that works! (With OS X as well!)


While it wasn’t the eaisiest thing to install (requires some computer smarts) D-Link did something that LinkSys could not: make a wireless print server
that works as advertised.

One word of advise for mac users: to use this printer, open print center, and use IP printing. Be sure to pick your correct printer model, or something
close. If you don’t, you’ll have a pile of jibberish printed.

Overall, very nice device. It feels magical when you see your printer printing not near a computer, and in your kitchen! You can place the printer
anywhere in the house.

If you want a print server, and are willing to put up with the hassles, this is the one to get… but be sure you have at least one computer whiz in your
family.
