Windows 7: Brother Printer constantly changes internal IP Address

Brother Printer constantly changes internal IP Address

I have a brother HL-5250DN printer connected directly connected to the network via a network cable.

Every time I power down the printer it assigns a new internal IP address when powered back up.

I have to go into the printers properties and change the ports properties to match the new assigned IP address.

Is there any way to assign a static IP address to this printer?

Thanks

Hi Tim, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can change the IP and make it static in your printers web interface. Open a browser, give printers IP to address bar, log in (Brother's default user is admin, password access) and click Network Config.

Hope this helps.
