Resetting D-Link DP-100 to factory default
We have a couple of these and I went to alter the subnet on one using telnet. It allowed me to change the subnet and when I save the change the connection dropped out, which is what I would expect. However, when I tried to connect on the new subnet I cannot see the print-server. I can anly assume a senior moment and I put in the wrong subnet.
The manual doesn't mention any way to set it back to factory default and there's no sign of a reset button or similar.

Here's the manual ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Printserver/dp10...0_manual_1.zip
and the propper admin tool is avalible here D-Link TechSupport which may be able to get to the configuration even if it is on a different ip subnet by using broadcasts.
Looks like the default IP was 184.108.40.206

I installed the Admin Tool but it couldn't find the device. I couldn't ping it either. I'll try 220.127.116.11 but it will have to wait. This time tomorrow I hope to be on a plane to South Africa

I didn't realise you could telnet to these damn things. We have tonnes of the blessed things and they all need the subnet mask changing.
I'm hoping I can produce a script that'll run the changes to them all...time to investigate.

I'd try one or two first Joe just in case you get the same problem as me. If you do and you sort it can you let me know 'cos I'm off to bed for 4 hours kip before leaving for the airport

Ah hah guess what I've done....confused our access point model number with your print servers :P I REALLY don't know how I managed to miss the words "PRINT" and "SERVER"
It'll probably be the same thing though.

Things you will need to do
Get Wireshark: Wireshark: Go deep.
Set your IP to 192.168.0.1 and your subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 leave your gateway and DNS blank
Plug the dlink in to your PCs network port with a patch cable (you may need a crossover cable if your PC is older)
Start capturing network traffic with Wireshark
Plug the power cord into your dlink
It may take a few lines, but you are looking for the dlink ARP. The current IP will be listed on that line.
Once you get the IP for the dlink; set your PCs IP to the first three octets of the dlinks IP and choose something other than the dlinks forth octet for the PCs forth octet. Keep your subnet mask the same.
Telnet in and it will ask you for a password. Hopefully no one set it. Just hit enter. You can figure it out from there.
