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?
Thanks!
