Ethernet connection OfficeJet 6500A

I have just got my new OfficeJet at Boxing Day (the day after Christmas) and I am still trying to connect my printer using ethernet connection. It is just not stable. Sometimes my Mac finds it and sometimes it doesn't. But my broadband modem router have always received the connection. What is the problem? My friend said it might be the IP Address kept changing or something. Technically it should work, and it did for a while. Anyone else having the problem? How do I fix it? It is quite important for me.

ps Boxing Day, must be very cheap. Did you wait for the right time ? Smiley Happy Few friends came over from Canada, I did not have time.

You see, that's the exact problem. Yes it did work for... 45 seconds, but it just automatically went offline Smiley Sad I guessed I have done everything correct but.... things just doesn't work on me.

(I actually have been experiencing network hard drive sharing as well, it might be other deeper problems.)
