How do I turn on TCP/IP on an HP LaserJet 2100TN?

I've got an HP LaserJet 2100TN (internal JetDirect), and I need to turn IP printing on for it.  I can see it with my Macintosh with Appletalk, and I can see it locally when I plug it into the Parallel port on my Win2K PC.  What utility can I do so that it obtains an IP address from my DHCP server?  (in this case, a wireless router).  I've tried Web JetAdmin, but since IP is turned off, it doesn't see it.  I'm new to this, so please excuse a newbie question.  I've already RTFM!

You don't want a changing IP, so here is how to get a static address using DHCP:

at the printer go through the menu and turn DHCP on, its different for every model
Then Print a configuration page
on the page is the Hardware address
go to your server and make a reservation in DHCP for that harware address, assign an IP
restart the printer
Print config page, it should now be getting an address that is static

I was able to fix my problem.  I had to use Web JetAdmin to set an IP address manually.  At that point, the config would let me go in and turn on DHCP.  Thanks for trying, though!

You can still assign it an address reservation using DHCP, that way it gets the same on everytime =)

Glad I could help =)
