Changing a Dell 3010cn IP address and Storecenter

I have a Dell 3010cn printer. From what I understand I need to change my IP address on my printer, but I don't know how to change it. I have another tech person who has given me the IP address that I need to change it to, but I don't know how to change it. I have comcast cable and it is going to the D-Link DIR-655 router. It is hardwired to the router also.

If you know how I can connect to a NAS box also (Iomega Storecenter), that would be helpful also.

Print a settings page from the printer. If you are not sure on how to get the settings page, download the user manual from support.dell.com, there should be instructions in there on how to get this. Once you have the settings page locate the IP address on the print out. Take this IP address (which may be different then the one you want to use) and open internet explorer, put the IP address in where you would normally type a web address, hit enter. This will take you to the embedded web server of the printer. Once you are there, you can look for printer settings, ip address or TCP/IP address. Once you have found this, you can set a static (meaning it will not change, unless you change it) IP address (the IP address your tech person gave you) and submit the information to the printer. The printer must be on and in the ready state for this to take hold. If you are prompted for a username and password for the embedded web server, dell default username in small case is admin, leave password blank or username admin, password is password. To confirm that the address has taken, print another settings page from the printer.

4300 laserjet wont print docs. IP address is same as a network computer, cannot change IP address? Configuration page prints and I check ports etc but will not print. cannot change IP address. Help....


Have you tried changing the IP address from within the driver's properties? Go into the print driver properties, and under the Ports tab, edit the 4300's port and change the IP address that it is associated with. You may need to reboot the printer once you make the change and save it, but that should allow you to change its IP address.

Dell 3010cn is of course a Lexmark in crappy Dell shell. But which Lexmark printer is it exactly ?


The 3010CN is Manufactured by Dell, Inc. so no affiliation with Lexmark. I know this because 1, I am in the printer service business and I have a cross reference for just about every printer made. The 3010CN has no cross reference therefor it is Made by Dell. Second the CNET review of this printer states that the Manufacturer is Dell.

Printer is offline


Hello ,

Most people connect this printer wireless and have issues, so I'll assume you are connected wireless.

First, we will have to make sure the printer is properly connected to the network

  1. Go to your printer.
  2. Press “menu” and scroll down to network, then WLAN
  3. Go to TCP/IP
  4. Go to IP address. Make sure there is an IP address here (not 000.000.000.000). Change the last 3 digits to “050”
  5. Change the boot method to “static”

If your IP address is not a valid one (all zeroes) or is an APIPA address (starting with 169.254.#.#) you will need to run the wireless setup wizard again as the machine is not properly connected wireless

If you had a valid IP address before changing anything, it means that the printer offline is caused by the computer not being able to locate the printer.
This is usually caused by the printers IP address changing.

Changing the boot method to static will make sure the IP address on the printer does not change.
Now we will have to make sure the computer knows where to find the printer.

On your computer, go to your start menuè control panelè printer
Here you should see your brother printer. Right click on the printer and select “properties” (If you are running windows Vista, make sure select “run as administrator” and then properties)
Go to the “ports” tab


Select “add Port…” and then double click on “standard tcp/ip port”.
This will bring you to the add port wizard, click next.

In the field for “Printer name or IP address” enter in the new IP address of your printer and then press next and finally “finished”.
Make sure to apply the changes.

You should now be able to print.

Thank you,

Printer config


I'm not aware of a way to have the printer dump that info out on paper via the console -- you'd have to connect to the web interface, and you'd need to know the network info to do that!

But here's what you can do:

On the front panel, press the menu button (center button in the 5-way button thingy) and click down to the Network information section.
This should show you the printers IP address, and let you change it if you need a different address for your network.

I have a Dell Printer 5100cn it is tied into ten PC's through a router, no Server. The IP address keeps changing, and I can not figure out how to set it manually. The other Dell printers let me set-up...


Why do you need to set it manually? More than likely this is because of DHCP settings on the network which keep issuing a new IP address...anyways...here are the instructions....
To set the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway on the printer to match the printer settings page, perform the following steps:
  1. Press the Menu button.

  2. Press down%20arrow%203100cn.jpg until Configure appears, and then press right%20arrow%203100cn.jpg or return%20arrow%203100cn.jpg.

  6. Press down%20arrow%203100cn.jpg until Panel appears, and then press return%20arrow%203100cn.jpg.

  7. Press the Cancel button.

  8. Press down%20arrow%203100cn.jpg until IP Address appears, and then press right%20arrow%203100cn.jpg or return%20arrow%203100cn.jpg.
    The cursor is located at the first digit of the IP address.

  9. Press down%20arrow%203100cn.jpg to enter the numbers for the IP address.

  10. Press right%20arrow%203100cn.jpg.
    The cursor moves to the next 3 digits of the IP Address.

  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 to enter all of the digits in the IP address, and then press return%20arrow%203100cn.jpg.

  12. Press the Cancel button.

  13. Press down%20arrow%203100cn.jpg until Subnet Mask appears, and then press right%20arrow%203100cn.jpg or return%20arrow%203100cn.jpg .

Dell 5100cn change ip address


Changing Printer's IP Address isn't that complicated. There are two ways on how to change the printer's IP Address.

If you know the old printer's IP address, you can simply type that old IP address on the Address Bar of your Internet Explorer or any other browser (ex: http://192.168.1.101). It should redirect you to the printer's User Interface. From there you can go to Network then TCP/IP settings. You can change the IP address of the printer. Make sure to use an IP address within the same range of your network.

The other way to change the printer's IP address is by its own Menu/Settings on the printer's LCD panel.
On your printer, press Menu then got Settings. Look for Network or LAN settings and click on Advance. Select TCP/IP and click on Edit. You can now change the IP address of the printer from there. Click on Done or Save after that.

Note: Make sure the use the correct IP address within the network's range.

Set up Dell 3010cn as network printer


Have you set it up on the network already or is this the first time? If you have set it up, you can access the network interface by inputting the printers IP address in your internet browser address bar.

If you are unsure of the current IP (assuming it's connected) try print a settings page. It should be on there.
