Problem killed as well

This was precisely the problem in my case, spent 2 freaking days re-installing and fighting the printer only to realize DHCP server has given out printer's address to another device on the network. Solution was as simple as:

1. Reconfigure DHCP on the router/server to exclude a pool of addresses from the automatic DHCP giveaway, in my case I left out the first 50 for printers and other static IP devices:

Router/gateway IP: 192.168.1.254
DHCP pool: 192.168.1.51-192.168.1.253
Mask: 255.255.255.0

This way I was able to set up static IP on the HP M1217 MFP printer to 192.168.1.11

After resetting the router everything works perfectly.

Hope this helps.

Wouldn't the optimal solution, vs reserving IP address, be to configure setup with the printer hostname? Since the hostname will never change this seems easier than fiddling with the router config.

Thank you very much for your comments. Yesterday, I was able to do another "experiment" with a third laptop. This was a brand new HP belonging to my son who happened to be visiting. We popped in the HP printer disc, installed the software and he was printing wireless from his laptop in minutes. So, I am confused, Out of three laptop computers, mine is the only one that will not allow wireless printing. The other two are perfect.

Just noticed this:

Looks like a static IP all along. What now?



See where it says Host Name in the first screenshot? That's what you would use to map the printer instead of the IP.

I'll have to try that with my Brother laser which is wireless. Thanks

I think I prefer assigning a fixed IP address though.
