    Can you print a configuration page from the printer?  There should be a way to do that from the printer itself.  Look at the page to see the settings for the network configuration, specifically ip address, subnet mask, etc.  If the settings are similar to those of your computer on that network and the ip is within the range then connect to the printer by typing its ip address into your computer's browser.  Let us know what the settings are.

    Most likely the printer's network settings are incorrect.  Compare it to your computer's current settings and let us know the differences.

    In the end you should assign a static ip address to the printer.  The address should be one just outside the range assigned by your network's router or DHCP server.  For example, if the range assigned would be - then you could give the printer  The rest of the network information (i.e. subnet mask, gateway, etc) would be the same as would be assigned.

    The easiest method may be to access the printer and configure it using your computer's browser.  Type the printer's ip address into the address or location input in your browser.  Because of the problems you are having this may not work though.

    That model of printer will allow you to set the information using the Printer's Control Panel (the interface on the printer).  Detailed instructions are in the I/O section of the printer's User Guide but I will try to explain the steps.  Enter Menus, highligh and select Configure Device, higlight and select I/O, highlight and select EIO X (where x = 1, 2, or 3), highlight TCP/IP, select Config Method, highlight and select Manual, and then highlight and select Manual Settings.  From this menu you will need to highlight, select and set up the ip address, subnet mask and gateway.  Enter each piece of information.  After the set up is complete you should restart the printer to make sure that the settings are implemented.

    Let us know if you have any questions or need more information.
