Give your computer a static ip in the printer range. Login to the priter, change it to your range. Remove your static ip.

Or use the printer buttons to change to dhcp

That's what I want to do (change the IP address of the print server).  But, the only way to logon to print server (wireless) is by connecting to it's web configuration utility using its current IP address ( and a browser.  But that doesn't work because it's iP is not in my subnet (192.168.1.x).  Seems like a common scenario.  Just wondering if I can avoid having to temporarily change the IP address on one of my machines in order to do access the print server and change its IP.....  
You would need to change the IP of a machine temporarily to connect to the device, that is the only way.
