Assigning a Static IP Address to HP Color LaserJet Printer
Posted on 2011-10-28
My client has an HP Color Laserjet 9500mfp printer/copier at his office. I set it up to print via the network by connecting the LaserJet via Ethernet cable to their Belkin N+ Wireless Router (Model F5D8235-4 v2). The router is assigning dynamic IP addresses using a DHCP range from 10.27.9.2 to 254.
However, due to a some construction going on at the office, the Ethernet cable is getting disconnected regularly. This causes the router to assign a new IP address to the LaserJet once the Ethernet cable gets plugged back into the router. And then client cannot print b/c the printer driver on his Windows 7 Laptop is set to print to that 1st IP address (which now is no longer assigned to the LaserJet).
So I need to assign a static IP address to that printer so that it will never change. How do I do this?
