Default Re: Printer Network Help!

I assume if you plug it onto your broadband router that will have a DHCP server running, (whereas your computer did not) then the printer will get an IP address viaDHCP.

you can then connect to a web interface on the printer and set the address manually (to make sure it doesn't change).

once you've done this you'll have a printer that you can install on every computer in your house, and you don't have to use just one computer to print from, or swap cables about.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
