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.

This means that another device on your network has the sames address as your printer, if the address of the printer is fixed / manual then you will need to find out what other device is using the address and restart it.

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.

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 are the instructions....

  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.

  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.

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: 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.

Changing a Dell 3010cn IP address and Storecenter

Print a settings page from the printer. If you are not sure on how to get the settings page, download the user manual from, 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.
