Type the present IP address into your browser.
Hit enter.
Click the NETWORKING tab.
Make sure MANUAL is set under CONFIGURATION METHOD.
Type in your changes. You will loose your connection to the browser at this point.
The other way is to go thru the MENU on the printer until you reach EIO X JetDirect Menu.
Hit ITEM-> once, Hit VALUE+ to get a YES. Hit select. Click ITEM-> until you reach CFG TCP/IP=NO
Hit VALUE+, Hit SELECT. Hit ITEM-> until you get to the IP BYTE 1=XXX.
Hitting VALUE+ or - will change the number, SELECT will lock it in.
From there use ITEM to get to the 2, 3 and 4 octet.

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.

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 10.1.1.10 and you want to change it to 10.1.1.100. All you need to do is open up a command prompt and type telnet 10.1.1.10. To change the IP address, type ip: 10.1.1.100.Type 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 10.1.1.100 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 10.1.2.100, the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway to 10.1.2.1. You'd type the following series of commands:
  • telnet 10.1.1.100
  • ip: 10.1.2.100
  • subnet-mask: 255.255.255.0
  • default-gw: 10.1.2.1
  • 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 10.1.2.0/24 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 10.1.2.100.

Computer disconnects when I switch printer on


Sounds like an IP address conflict. Here's what's happening...

An IP address is like an address on your house. It is specific to your street. You will not see another house on your street with the same numbers on your house. Same applies here. Only one IP address can be used per device on the network. So, lets say your printer has a static IP address of 192.168.1.2, that is set internally through the settings menu. A static IP address is one that the printer will always use. When your printer is turned off, it is not occupying that IP address. So when you turn your computer on, your computer is using 192.168.1.2, which it gets automatically from your router. It takes this address because your printer is not using it, because it is turned off. When you turn your printer on, it steals your computer's IP address because the printer is set up to only use that IP address, leaving your computer disconnected, as it no longer has an address.

The way to resolve this issue is to change your printer settings. Instead of using 192.168.1.2, use 192.168.1.20, so that you can have 20 computers connected to your network at any given time without getting a conflict. You will have to set up your printer again through your computers in the house, but when you turn on your printer, you will not get disconnected again.

For support on your printer, you can go to the manufacturer's web site and click support. It will ask you for your model number. From here, you can look at the manual for your printer, and it will give you a step by step instruction on how to change the IP address.


NOTE: The IP address of 192.168.1.2 was used as an example and may not be the exact IP address of any of your devices. I would advise increasing the last number by 10. In this case, the last number is a 2, which we would change to 20. If your last number is 101, change it to 111.

Brother MFC 8860 has ip conflict. How do I resolve this? The issue is that the IP address is different on my computer versus the printer and thus doesn't allow them to connect. Greg


Each IP-address on a network (private in your home, or public on the Internet) must be unique; hence "IP conflict" when two devices (computers or printers or iPod Touch) try to "claim" the same IP-address.

If you have configured a "static" IP-address into the printer, change it to an IP-address that is *NOT* used on your network.

Or, find the computer on your network that is using the same IP-address as your printer, and change its IP-address and reboot it.

In order to connect, your computer and your computer *MUST* have *DIFFERENT* IP-addresses.

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.

I'm not having a problem but I just need the procedure on how to change the IP address on a T2280 Tally printer.


If the printer has an internal network card the easiest way to change the IP address is through the printers own Web page, this can be accessed by entering the current IP Address of the printer in your Web Browser.

Go to the Advanced Section, then TCP/IP you can then change the IP Address of the printer.

You can find the current IP Address set in the printer by pressing the small black test button near the network port.

Alternatively you can use ARP for help on this open the DOS prompt and type ARP /?
Follow the example showing how to set an IP Address you will need the MAC address off the print out from network card test page.

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 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.
