MF656Cdw IP address changing


I recently purchased and installed a Canon MF656Cdw laser printer. Over the past two weeks, I have received multiple messages stating that my IP address changed. This situation then renders my printer unusable since my machines can no longer connect to the printer.

How do I keep a static IP address associated with my printer?





You can set a static or reserved IP for the printer on whatever is providing DHCP to your network.  

For many this is your router.  If the hardware is issued by your ISP, check their website for a user guide.

Essentially, you will look at your LAN settings.  Here you will see the range or pool of IP addresses the router uses for IP assignment.  Now look at your attached devices and decide what IP you want to assign or reserve for the printer.  After the assignment, restart the printer so it gets the IP you have specified.  Now remove and reinstall the printer on your PC.  Moving forward the router will always/only assign this IP to the printer.  This only has to be done once.
