Because this printer's default static IP is not in my subnet and my network does not have a DHCP server I am unable to access the settings I need to change the IP address to one I can use. I am using Windows 7 64-bit and am plugged into the printer via USB. I know if I had an IP address from my network I could type it into the address bar and open up far more settings but I am unsure how to do that since the default IP is not on my network.

I assume you cannot log into the printer's subnet temporarily? Can you disconnect the printer from that subnet temporarily? Can you connect an Ethernet cable between the printer and your PC?

Thanks! I didn't even think about just running a cat 5 cable between the printer and computer. I now have access to the IP settings on the printer.
