Hi,
I have a Lenovo laptop which is connected to Router (from ISP).
I have a Canon Printer (Canon ImageClass MF 232 w) which is also connected to Router (from ISP).
This is a Windows 10 environment.
 
I setup the printer for the laptop as the followings:
1) Go to Setting > Devices > Printers & Scanners > then I see the above Canon Printer
2) I go to Control Panel > Devices & Printers > and I see the above Canon Printer which I set it as a Default printer
 
@the laptop: I go to command prompt > Ipconfig > then, I saw the IPv4 is “192.168.0.4
                              The Subnet Mask is 255.255.255
                              The Default Gateway is 192.168.0.1
 
 
Question: How do I know the IP address of this canon printer?

Thanks,
tjie

you may run the below commands in the given order,  then check the MAC addresses against THIS list. the matched MAC addresses are from Canon, and your printer should be one of them.

FOR /L %a in (2,1,254) DO PING -N 1 192.168.0.%a
ARP -A

The printer's control panel should have a screen which displays the network information.  This would be in the user's manual.

Or download an IP scanner such as Angry IP Scanner which will scan your network CIDR block in about two minutes and tell you everything that responds to a ping.

Note that anything that does NOT respond to a ping (and these days, many things don't) will not show up in a scan that relies on ping.  In that case it's necessary to rely on the device to tell you what it thinks its address is.

Hi tjie,

Read this EE article:
Scanners and Cameras Applet in Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

In the next-to-last screenshot shown in that article, click the Network Setting tab to see the IP address. Here's what mine looks like in W10:

Edit: Just updated my article to document that the method still works with W10 V2004...and included the screenshot (showing the Network Setting tab) that I posted here.

You can view the currently configured IP address from the LCD display panel on the printer.

step 1: go to https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/ and downloads the software - its free
step 2 - run it. it will show all the devices and IPs connected to your network

that's it!

you do extra steps. in step 2 locate the IP of the canon printer. open your web browser and type the IP address. go to network settings and make the IP fixed 0 static, so the number is not changed whenever you restart your router or the electricity goes off.

Why don't you print a Network Configuration page on the printer?
