HP wifi printers (I’ve had 2 over the last several years)eventually have a disconnect with my wifi router and was told (by an experienced IT guy from my last job) I should assign the printer a static address to eliminate the problem. How can I assign a static address to my printer. Here are the models Router: Belkin model F5D9231-4v1(01); Printer HP Officejet 6600. I know how to access the printer and manually enter an IP address and subnet and such, I just don’t know which numbers to use where. I also know how to access my router, via typing in the IP address in Internet Explorer, but i'm unsure of which tab within the router’s page (i.e. is it category “wireless” under “MAC address control”) or which numbers (IP address or MAC Address)and where should I get the correct numbers from (i.e. go run, cmd,IPconfig/all). Thanks for any help!

on a PC connected and working on the router - post an ipconfig /all
I also know how to access my router, via typing in the IP address in Internet Explorer
have a look at the LAN settings and for DHCP - what range or number is given eg 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.50 - or starting at 192.168.1.2 x50
whats the default gateway

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

I know how to access the printer and manually enter an IP address and subnet and such, I just don’t know which numbers to use where
so now you should be good to go

use an IP address above 100 say
Ip pool ending address: 192.168.2.200

the default gateway is 192.168.2.1 as the pool starts at 2 - as confirmed on the ipconfig /all
subnet mask- from ipconfig /all - 255.255.255.0

and then DNS

8.8.8.8
and
8.8.4.4
