How To Assign A Static IP address To Your Copier & Avoid IP Conflicts






How To Assign A Static IP address To Your Copier & Avoid IP Conflicts

Now we are going to go into how to add a router to a copier if you don’t have a network person handy.  There are two methods.  The first is called IP reservation.  It has many other names but the basic idea is that on the router an  IP address is mapped to the MAC address of the copier or its print card.  The second is called assigning a static IP address.  This involves assigning an IP address outside the range of the DHCP server on your router or server.  We are going to explore the second.

The default gateway is always your routers Ip address.

enter your router ip address into the url bar of your browser and hit enter…

Logging in to a LinkSys Router. The username is either blank or “admin” and the default password is “admin”.
Logging in to a Netgear Router. The username is “admin” and the default password is “password“.
Logging in to a Dnynex Router. The username is “admin” and the default password is ” ” or blank.
(For cisco this might not necessarily work)
Logging in to a cisco Router. The username is “cisco” and the default password is “cisco”.
Logging in to a Trendnet Router. The username is “admin” and the default password is “admin”.
Logging in to a Most Belkin Routers. The username is ” ” and the default password is “admin”.

Now lets say you want to set your copier up with a static IP address.  Your first step is to figure out whats the ip range of your router… lets use linksys as an example.

By default on Linksys wireless routers, the DHCP IP address
range is typically 192.168.1.100 thru 192.168.1.149 and addresses cannot end in 0, 1, or 255. Any fixed (static) IP address
must be outside the DHCP server range.

To find what IP addresses LinkSys assigns dynamically: 1. Start your Linksys administration program as you did in Step 5. 2. When you see Setup, select the DHCP tab and find Starting IP address. This is typically 192.168.1.50 or 192.168.1.100. Choose an IP address that is lower than the Starting IP address.
This means that IP addresses you want to assign to devices, such as printers, need use an address in the range of 192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.99 or 192.168.1.150 thru 192.168.1.254 (assuming you are still using the default DHCP server range).
