I have a network printer connected to a PC via my router.

How do I connect it using the router and not my USB port?

How do I find the IP address of the printer ?

In a command prompt, try typing net view and see what you can pull up. If your printer is listed in there do a ping <printer name> then that should bring up the IP addy of the printer.

Try checking the DHCP list on your router. Depending on the router, it may also list any connected device (including non-DHCP clients).

The IP of the printer is easily identified typically by using the printer front panel to print a status or configuration page.

Most network attached printers will come with a PC application that will scan your network for the NIC MAC prefix associated with the NIC in the printer, but on large or vlan switched networks this does not always work.

As suggested by McFly I went to the DHCP settings in the router and found the
IP address there....

Gerritt, I printed off a "general information" page and that did include IP address also.


Thanks guyz.

Hi,

Every network printer or print server has a unique IP address associated with it.

This address is either configured manually or set using an automatic network protocol such as the boot protocol, reverse address resolution protocol or zeroconf.

You can normally find the IP address of a printer on the printerís control panel or by printing the configuration page.

Select the printers and faxes tab from the control panel.

Right click on the printer those you want to find the IP address and click properties.

Then click on the ports tab to display the IP address of your printer.

There are many ways, but here is a simple way. Open up a word document and go to print under file menu. The printer IP should show up. If you want to configure your printer say clear messages on the screen you can then type the IP address in explorer or another web browser and you will have access to the printer.

A network printer with built-in ethernet port usually provides a menu button that will allow you to display IP address assigned to it. You may also try printing self test or configuration page from your printer.
