Oki3400n - how to assign a static ip address

Currnently the DHCP router in my house will assign a dynamic ip address to the printer.  however when there is a power outage, etc then the printer will be assigned automatically with a new ip address.  this will then cause problems as all the pcs that are trying to print to this printer will no longer be able to find the printer.  hv to reset the ip address in the pcs to point to the new ip address. this gets really cumbersome.  anyone has any idea how to assign a static ip address within the printer?

I found this post via Google trying to solve the similar problem with C3200n.

>> this will then cause problems as all the pcs that are trying to print to this
>> printer will no longer be able to find the printer.

Originally, I also had this problem (with C200n, but it is probably similar). If I recall correctly, I solved it as follows:

1. Open the OKI LPR UTILITY from the machine you are trying to print from.

2. Choose Option > Setup

3. Make sure that the Auto Reconnect checkbox is checked.

Again, I believe that is what I did to solve that I couldn't print after power outages etc. The IP is not static, but it still solves the problem.

Static IP

Today I wanted a static IP for my OKI C3200n because sometimes there would be conflict between the IP for my printer and another machine in the house with a static IP.

What I did was the following.

1. In the printer menu locate the NETWORK MENU

2. Go to the IP ADDRESS SET option, change from AUTO to MANUAL

3. Go to the IP ADDRESS OPTION, change to the desired ip address. In my case it was at 10.0.0.5, but I wanted 10.0.0.6 for the printer, so I changed it to that. Typically this is either 10.0.x.x or 192.168.x.x

4. Press the online button. The printer will reset the network connection (it took approx 1 minute)

5. This should be enough. You can try to ping the printer at the new IP, or navigate to the new IP in your browser:

How to configure huawei hg533 router for home network


William the more information you can provide the more accurate can be our brain trust community's answer.
What I have to guess is you added the cameras to an existing network.
What you need to provide is how are the camera's getting their IP addresses ?
How are the PC getting their IP addresses.
My guess
Go into the router settings and look for DCHP server. Look at the leases issued and change the IP addresses that are assigned to the cameras to Static rather than Dynamic. if the cameras are getting IP address from DHCP. server rather than being set up manually..

If you manually set up the IP addresses on the cameras then alter the available ip range on the DHCP server to avoid the IP addresses assigned to the cameras. As an example say the DCHP range was 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 then alter it to be 192.168.1.21 to 192.168.1.254 and then hence the ip addresses 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.20 are used on static ip addresses like printers and cameras devices.

How do you log into the router
go to the internet browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and it should bring up your router The user name is most likely admin and the password will be admin by default. If no one has changed them.
I have looked at the usre manual but it does not spell out how to change the DCHP ip address ranges leases out or the way to change the ip addresses leased out to static for the cameras. I think you will find some sort of setting in thew dhcp menu option of the router.

What
I think is happening is called an ip address conflict. And the above suggestions should stop this from occurring when you reboot the IP address is re assigned and the DCHP server could be issuing ip address leases to your p.cs that are already staticly assigned to your cameras.

Tip

IP Conflicts in a work place


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

Denon AVR-1612 IP Address


Most likely it doesn't have a static (non changing) IP address. It's DHCP must be enabled and DHCP needs to be enabled on the router as well so the router can dynamically assign your Denon an address (which can be different each time you power it up). You don't really need to be concerned with what the address is, it just needs to get one from the router.

How do I changed the IP address on Zebra 105SL Thermal printer? I need the steps on how to do it.


To enter Setup Mode, press SETUP/EXIT.

Press (+) or (-) until you get to IP RESOLUTION and then press NEXT/SAVE

Press the (+) or (-) key to display Dynamic or Permanent.

Select Permanent to give set it up for Static.

Go back to the previous menu and go into IP ADDRESS.

Press the (-) key to move the next digital position.
Press the (+) key to increase the value of the digit.

**The IP will not take if it is set to Dynamic**


To leave Setup Mode, press SETUP/EXIT.

"SAVE CHANGES" will display.

Select PERMANENT by using the (+) and (-) keys and then hit NEXT/SAVE.

You should now have the IP you put in configured on the printer.

How to set my wrt300n router to use static ip,... i´ve have a problem whit my ps3, and want to use static ip, instead of dhcp(dynamic) should i do it before i do it on my pc and how to do it on the...


Hi,
You may want to enable the DHCP reservation feature of the router.
What is DHCP Reservation and how do I configure it?

What is DHCP Reservation?
A DHCP reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. Use reservations for the DHCP enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on network.


Step 1: Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here
Step 2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Setup.
Step 3: Click on Basic Setup.
Step 4: Make sure that DHCP Server is Enabled. Then, click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

Changing of I P Address


You can use any router. All routers these days comes with a DHCP server feature built-in. However, you have to ensure your desktop is set to receive ip address and dns dynamically from the DHCP server.

However, if you wish to have the same ip address always but dynamically assigned by the DHCP server and not a static ip addres, you need to go for a router that provides static dhcp ip address.

You may check Linksys, where you could find one of their model which has this Static DHCP feature.

I hope this helps

I cant open an ip address for an assigned webpage.


There are several private address ranges that may be affecting the operations you are attempting to perform see table

IP Address Ranges Reserved for Private Use
Class Networks A 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255 B 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.0.0 C 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.0
All addresses in this range in your network are only directly addressable to machines within your network at most by default. The router to your ISP and the internet as a whole maps these addresses onto the IP address assigned statically or dynamically by your ISP to the WAN side of your router using an address translation (NAT) service. So where you are attempting to connect to this device from may be significant. You may need to review your setup guide to see if it references router configuration requirements to support access to the Web_xpander port from devices not attached to your internal network. If you have multiple internal networks (address ranges and not devices) this could also be an issue.

Secondly -- does the Setup software for the device tell you the IP address assuming it is dynamically assigned. Otherwise how would you know what the address is. Static assignment could resolve that issue however you must understand your network to assign your own address. Given a theoretical network where the router gateway is 192.169.0.1 and the network mask is 255.255.255.0 the valid network addresses are 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255. A router or other device supporting DHCP address assignment reserves another range such as 192.168.0.100 for 50 leases (ending at 192.168.0.149) for dynamic assignment to requesting network adapters. Ignoring the 0 and 255 address this leaves open to the network administrator (you in your home) the possibility of assigning static IP address in the ranges of say 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.150 - 192.168.0.254 or so. You as well as the DHCP server are required to assure that there are no duplicate IP addresses assigned on your network. So statically assigning 192.168.0.100 (which is DHCP assignable in our case) could and would most likely result in duplicate addressing and network problems.
