Changing Windows 7 IP address for Printer Port
Posted on 2012-12-20
Hi Experts. I could use some help on a frustrating situation.
While running Win 7, I just had to change my Apple Airport Extreme router to BRIDGE mode. When I did, the AT&T Uverse router changed all of the DHCP IP addresses from 192.168.0.X to 192.168.1.x.
My Lexmark printer had a static IP, and I changed it to the new IP range, but Windows 7 still shows the Lexmark printer port with the old IP address. I have tried to change in Printer properties, and in Print Server properties, and even search the registry for the old IP address, 192.168.0.210, but found nothing.
I tried uninstalling the Lexmark software, drivers and database, but it refuses to completely uninstall, and when reinstalling, it still shows the old IP address. No mater how I try an uninstall the driver, or change the IP, I cannot, so I cannot access the printer.
Anyone have any suggestions?
