Windows 7: How do I set fixed IP addresses for my 2 printers and 2 laptops

How do I set fixed IP addresses for my 2 printers and 2 laptops

Every time one of us goes off to do a client presentation, we have to re-enable our printers to start printing again. Maybe I'm clueless, but my son also followed the YouTube video without success. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Can you go into a little more detail about this problem? Are you setting the static (fixed) IP and it wont save? Do you disconnect when you go to do a client presentation? We need more info to help you further.

Go into more detail about going off for a client presentation (ie.. what you take with you, what do you unplug, etc) and what you're doing when you re-enable it.

In addition to mhansen1's post can you please upload the IP configuration of one of the laptops that you want a static IP address assignment so that we can better understand what the need is for as well as be able to propose a potential IP address stack to use. To do so please follow this tutorial and post back your results - Network Posting Tips

Many Thanks,
Josh!
