Is it a 4580 or 4850? (I didn't see 4850's anywhere)

Can you set a static IP for it. Most routers allow for this. Only reason i say this is the computer needs to know what IP it is printing to if you set it to DHCP then it is Dynamic and will change IP's computer/computers will not be able to find printer.

I have to contact the venders for support or have the company purchase the service manual.

There is really no reason to set a copier/printer with a dynamic address, just give it an address outside your address pool, but in the same subnet.  If your DHCP server gives out 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.254, just change the pool to  192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.250 and give the copier 192.168.0.251.  This way all other devices wont have to go looking for it, and you wont have to worry about assigning a dynamic address. Most copiers/printers don't allow dynamic addressing because there is really no reason for it.
~~Points to Dynamic1~~

I guess I'm going to do it that way. They have the pool on the range 192.168.1.2 ~ 192.168.1.254. I wanted to setup a reserve ip pool, so the copier\printer can get the same IP, even if some how the printer got cold resetted, it will still be able to get access from the other users.

Thanks agundrm. We both said the same thing so even a split is cool with me. Albert you did not say what router you have. Most will let you assign a static address. Static=Sticky stays the same. So in otherwards the router will let the other DHCP computers know where the printer is at all times. Even if the printer gets a cold reset it keeps the same ip you give it. My color laser beacuse it is so BIG I do not hook it up to a UPS and it cold resets a few times every once in a while never a problem though. Although you could just keep the ip written down and reprogram the printer real quick if you had to.
