Hopefully this is not a problem,
when i ping xxx.xxx.xxx.255 on our network the reply come back from xxx.xxx.xxx.202 which is a Ricoh printer (with fixed ip address), i turned said printer off did the ping again and the reply come back from xxx.xxx.xxx.208 which, again is a Ricoh printer.
When i use an IP scanning program ip address 255 does not show up, my dhcp range only goes to 254.  As far as i know i do not have any device assigned to .255
Any ideas?
Cheers

Go to printer setup, it is network printer. change the IP address.
For showing printer IP in network config, check printer configuration.

I have checked the priinter and it's ip address is 192.168.0.202, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0, whci is correct.

I assume you have the netmask 255.255.255.0 in your network. This means that address x.x.x.255 is the broadcast address - all devices on your LAN will receive the ping packet and some of them will reply (with their own IP).
