Assigning an IP Address to Your Printer
There are a few ways to assign an IP Address to your printer. Below we have a few steps that will help you assign an IP address using a web interface. Another way of assigning is through the printer itself.
1: The Configuration and the Explorer
Take a printout of the configurations page. The internet explorer page needs to be open. All addresses from the address line have to be deleted.
2: Enter IP Address
You now have to enter the IP address in the address bar, and then press enter.
4: Manual Assignation
Click on the networking tab in case of a newer model of printer; open the ‘administration’ window and then click on the ‘configuration’ tab.
You need to edit the IP Address entered previously. For this you need a Gateway address and also a Subnet Mask, no other field needs to be changed.
All you need to do now is scroll down to the bottom and ‘apply’. You then close the internet explorer window and restart the computer.
You will need to check that the configuration was set and you will need to print the configuration page again. The above steps will help you assign an IP address to your printer through the Wizard.
