On this page I will be showing you how to reset the Dlink DP-311U print server back to it's original factory defaults. This is not the same thing as a reboot. When you reboot something you cycle the power to the device. When you reset something you take all the settings and return all of them back to how they were from the factory.

Warning: Be careful when resetting this device. A few things to consider before resetting this unit are:

  • The unit's IP address will be reverted back to how it was from the factory.
  • If you use a DSL connection for this print server you need to re-enter the ISP username and password. Call your local Internet Service Provider for the details.
  • The Wireless information needs to be reconfigured as it is erased.
  • Make a note of any other settings you have changed in the past as they all will be erased.
