CP 1215 and problems with D-Link Print Server

I just purchased a HP Color LaserJet CP1215 and have a problem printing.  I currently use a D-Link DP-300U Print Server and have two printers hooked up to it: the CP1215 and an HP LaserJet 1100.  I have two (2) laptops and a desktop.  The laptops are a Tosiba Satellite (Windows XP) and an HP Pavilion (Windows Vista).  The desktop is a Sony VIAO (Windows XP).  I can print from the Toshiba Laptop and the Sony VIAO to both printers either wirelessly or hardwired.  I can also print from the HP Pavillion to the LaserJet 1100 either wirelessly or hardwired.  When I try to print from the HP Pavillion to the CP1215 wirelessly, the printer will not stop printing until I manually cancel the print job.  Even if I print a test page it will continue to print test pages until I manually cancel the job.  It almost seems as if there is an infinite loop whereby the print job re-initializes after it finishes.  At this point I am assuming it has something to do with Vista since it seems to work with both of the XP machines.  I don't think it is the print server.  Has anyone experienced this problem and if so were you able to correct it?  I would appreciate any input from you.

Re: CP 1215 and problems with D-Link Print Server

Yes, I am having the exact same problem. I have a CP 1215, connected to a Linksys Wireless G Print Server (WPSM54G) and using Vista-64.

I have tried EVERYTHING with no success. I have managed to get it to stop printing continuously, but, the problem now is, if you tell it to print say, 2 or 3 copies, maybe it prints, maybe it does not print at all. It like "disappears" into the ether and never comes out on the printer. Sometimes, it does not even print when I tell it to print directly from the print server to the printer.

Sucks....

I'm also having this problem.  I'd hoped the problem was the print server so I tried another.  It fails (endlesslessly loops through the print job) with Vista using either of these print servers: Linksys PSUS4 and D-Link DP-300U.  This is exasperating.

Re: CP 1215 and problems with D-Link Print Server

You have to manually install the printer through the Control Panel as a Local Printer/TCP/IP Device.  You will need the IP address and Queue name from the Printer Server page.  You can find the detailed instructions at this link: http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=2705&question=dpr-1260+vista

"You have to manually install the printer through the Control Panel as a Local Printer/TCP/IP Device"  That does not resolve the problem.

Re: CP 1215 and problems with D-Link Print Server

Hi all,

 

I stumbled upon this site while looking for a solution.  Eventually found the answer somewhere else (at least for me).  You have to change it to an LPR queue, and check off LPR Byte Counting Enabled. (This is assuming Vista, I think).

 

I have some more details at my website; feel free to check it out, leave me a note if you it helped you :-).

 

If you're having problems with Windows Vista and a print server...

 

Good luck!

Thanks Hoborocks, it worked for me! I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and a d-link DI-604UP router. No more wasted paper or toner!
