Re: Will not show IP address

You can make the printer print out current settings (including IP address) by pressing the menu button on the front panel of the printer. From there, hit the down button until it reads "Configure", then hit the middle button. Hit the down button again until it reads "Reports", then hit the middle button. It should now read "Printer Settings". Hit the middle button to get the printout.

Re: Will not show IP address

Chk for the default IP of the printer . It shud be in the manual. Open IE, and in the address bar put in the IP, this will take you to the printer web interface. Here you shud be able to change the IP.

Wheres the ip address found

The printer's IP address is usually assigned by the router normally under the DHCP. Some printers can be setup with a fixed IP address internal to the printer, but you must be careful not to assign it the same address as another device on the system or it will be in conflict. The beast way to assign a fixed IP to a printer is to give it an assigned IP address in the router table.

Printer offline and not printing

Since this is a network printer there are a few potential sources for problems.
  1. IP address conflict. When items on a network are powered on and off sometimes the auto-assigned IP addresses aren't refreshed. The router may think the printer isn't there and re-uses the IP address for a new device on the network, but the printer is still trying to connect with the original IP address.
    1. Log onto your router. See if the printer shows up in the DHCP Client Table of your Local Network - it may have names or just MAC addresses depending on the router. You can print out a test sheet from your printer and see what *it* has as it's IP address and see if that's assigned to something else.
    2. If you do find a conflict, the easiest solution, IMO, is to assign a static IP address to the printer.
  2. Bad cable or hub. Both can go bad and a problem with either will cause the printer to appear to be offline.
    1. Check for lights at both ends of the ethernet cable.
    2. Try a different port in the hub or router
    3. Try a different cable
  3. An recent update corrupted your printer settings.
    1. Uninstall the printer, then reinstall it

Not able to change the default gateway. It just takes what ever the IP address is

Are you using DHCP to obtain the IP address? If so, typically the gateway will be automatically assigned, and if the DHCP server does not have a gateway programmed in the printer will default to it's own address. Change the IP setup to manual and you will be able to put in any address you want for the gateway.

How can i configure a ip printer on network

The first thing you need to do is plug in the power and the Ethernet connection. All network-capable HP printers and JetDirect appliances will default to DHCP mode, which automatically acquires an IP address on any DHCP-enabled network. Even tiny home networks with inexpensive routers have automatic DHCP-assigned IP addresses. Once the printer comes online, it will automatically obtain the first available IP address in the DHCP pool.
Next, you need to figure out what IP address the printer automatically obtained. There are multiple ways to do this. The surest way is to get the printer to tell you what the address is by printing out a network configuration printer report. You'll have to cycle through the options on your particular HP printer to find and print the configuration report. On an HP 4250 for example, you would push Menu, Information, and then Print Configuration to get it to tell you what IP address it's sitting on. The external JetDirect appliances have a button you can press to print the configuration.
If you don't want to or can't physically touch the printer because it's in some remote location, that's not a problem. If you happen to know what the DHCP range is or you can look at the DHCP server itself, you'll quickly be able to see what IP address the printer obtained. If it's a relatively empty network, you can ping the first available IP in the DHCP range and find the printer that way.
Once you know the IP address of the printer, it would be possible to declare you're done and just print to that dynamic IP address. But from a management perspective, you may not want to do this because you want the printer on a fixed and predictable IP address. Really smart network administrators will create static DNS names for the printer and have people point to the name of the printer instead of the IP address. That way, if the printer ever needs to be moved or needs a new IP address, you won't have to change all the servers and workstations pointing to the raw IP address. You can just change the DNS entry in one place and everyone will automatically divert to the new IP address. But before you can assign any DNS entries, you must change the DHCP address.
Changing the IP address
If you want to change the IP address to something static, you can do it via Web interface or command line interface (CLI). But by the time you even start the Web interface, you could be all finished if you used the CLI. We're going to stick with the CLI here because it requires only a few quick commands.
For the purpose of this tutorial, let's say that the printer obtained an IP address of and you want to change it to All you need to do is open up a command prompt and type telnet To change the IP address, type ip: exit, and it will ask you whether you want to save the settings. Just press Y to apply the changes.
Let's say you want to take an existing printer that's on and move it to a completely different subnet. Instead of following this entire procedure, just telnet in and change the IP configuration to the new settings before you power down and move the printer. Then, once you plug in the printer to the new network, it will already be ready to go and accessible.
Suppose you want to change the IP address to, the subnet mask to, and the default gateway to You'd type the following series of commands:
  • telnet
  • ip:
  • subnet-mask:
  • default-gw:
  • exit
  • y
That last Y key commits the changes, and you will lose the ability to access this printer until you reattach it to the network. But once it's reattached, you won't have to go through the whole setup routine of determining the DHCP address and changing it because it will already be configured to

How do i determin the ip address for c350 bizhub, I trying to connect to a dell through a hub

If the printer really is connected to a "hub" (not a "switch", not a "router"), then you'll have to use the controls on the printer to *ASSIGN* an IP-address to the printer.

If the printer is connected to a "switch" or a "router", it should _automatically_ obtain an IP-address. Use the controls on the printer to *VIEW* the IP-address that it obtained.

I need to change the IP address on my hp color laser jet 2840 coud you help me with that

Most HP printers can be reset to factory defaults (or cold-reset ) by turning the printer off and holding down the Online or Go button while turning the printer back on. The printer control panel display should read "Cold Reset" or "Restoring Factory Settings" or something like these lines. This will remove any IP address that the printer had previously.
When you plug it in, your router should have assigned an ip address automatically. Go into your router and look at the attached devices and it will show you what ip address has been assigned to each device on your network.

Use Web Interface or Manually Assign an IP address NOTE: Network HP Printers allow you to manage them via Internet Explorer. You can enter the IP address that the printer currently has and access its configuration settings. This assumes that the web interface hasn't been locked.
NOTE: We recommend that you install the latest version of Sun's Java software before trying these steps. See this How To: How to Update Sun's Java 2 Runtime Environment Plug-in.
  1. Print the Configuration page if needed. You will be entering the "current" IP Address.
  2. Open Internet Explorer. Delete EVERYTHING from the Address line.
  3. Enter the IP Address in the Address line and press Enter.
  4. You should then connect to the printer. If this fail, go to the next section to assign the IP address manually.

    NOTE: There are 2 basics versions of the web interface. Type 1 is on newer printers. Type 2 is on older models

  5. Type 1: Click the Networking tab.
    Type 2: Click the Administration button. Click the Configuration tab.

  6. Edit the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway as needed.
  7. Do not change any other fields.
  8. Scroll to the bottom and click Apply. Click OK.
  9. Close Internet Explorer.
  10. Restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.
NOTE: If the above steps do not allow you to assign the IP address via the Wizard, you will need to do it through at the printer itself.
  1. Go to this HP Support Page.

    Configuring TCP/IP through the Front Control Panel

  2. Click the link to your printer model. Highlight these steps.
  3. From the File menu choose Print. In the Page Range section, click Selection. Click Print.

    Note: For the complete printer user guide, go to the HP Printers Support & Troubleshooting page. Locate your specific printer type and model. On its home page, under self-help resources, click the manuals link. Download the printer's User Guide (not the Getting Started Guide). Look for steps to manually configure TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel.

  4. Follow the steps from the printout to assign the desired IP Address to the printer.

    IP address will be entered at the IP BYTE prompt
    Subnet mask is entered at SM BYTE prompt
    Gateway address is entered at GW BYTE prompt

    Note: The syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=) and timeout (TIMEOUT=) do not need configured.

  5. Once the IP Address is entered, restart the Printer. Print the Configuration page to see if number was set.

Hope this helps
