Hi Experts,

I wonder if anyone has instructions on how to put a static IP address on the printers below.

1. Brother MFC -9440 CN
2. HP laserJet 5550dn

Any guide or manual will be helpful.

    If your running DHCP print out the configuration page for the printer take the MAC address and go into DHCP on the server and create a reservation enter the MAC address which ever Ip's you want. Restart the printer and you should be good to go..

    I can't help with the HP, but I have an MFC-9840CDW, which has the same menu system as your MFC-9440CN, and here are the steps for that:

    Press the Menu button then use the down arrow key to scroll down to LAN and press OK. Then select Wired or WLAN, then TCP/IP, then IP Address, and use the number keys to enter in the static IP address you want. Note that the menu system allows you to scroll up and down to your choice and then hit OK, or you can just hit the number key corresponding to the menu item.

    Regards, Joe
