changing IP address for wireless printer

- Print a Network Config Page from the front of the printer. Note the printer's current IP address (make sure it is not 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.x.x - if it is you have another problem).
- Type that IP address into a browser to reveal the printer's internal settings.
- Choose the Networking tab, then Wireless along the left side, then the IPv4 tab.
- On this screen you want to set a Manual IP. You need to set an IP address outside the range that the router automatically sets (called the DHCP range). If you know what that is, set an IP outside that range but no higher than 254 (the last number in the address). If you do not know this, enter the current IP address.
- Use 255.255.255.0 for the subnet (unless you know it is different, if so, use that)
- Leave the gateway and DNS blank. Click 'Apply'

Now, shut down the router and printer, start the router, wait, then start the printer.

After this you may need to redo 'Add a Printer' using the new IP address.

changing IP address for wireless printer

That's a result of your router not assigning the printer an IP address due to some communication issues. Make sure the printer and the router are in range, and that there are no physical objects obstructing them, ex. walls. Also, try restarting your router and your printer, and then check if the printer gets a valid IP address.

169.254 address mean the printer does not have a DHCP address from your router, and it will not be accessible as the PC have another subnet mask provided by the router.

 

In order to resolve the problem, reset the wireless settings and then reconfigure it to the network:

 

Click Start > Programs > HP > HP Photosmart B209 Series > Reconfigure Wireless connection and follow the steps.

If you unable to complete the configuration, please clarify your operating system so i may offer any further steps according.

Hi,

In order to reconfigure the wireless connection for your product, try the following steps:

 

From your printer, touch setup, then touch Network.

Select Restore Network Defaults, the network configuration will reset.

 

touch setup, then touch Network., then select Wireless Setup Wizard.

Select your router name and complete the configuration steps.

 

Then check if the printer has been assigned correctly, reboot your PC and check if you are able to use the printer.

 

Please let me know of any change,

Thanks but I have done this several times already, any other suggestions. It will say successfully connected but when the print out comes out, it still says IP 169. and the printer is not available in the network. Also I am not sure why this happened when we were able to use this for almost 2 months wihtout a glitch.
