Dell B1160w Mono Laser Printer IP Address Randomly Changes
Dell B1160w Mono Laser Printer
The printer seems to reset its IP address. Last week it was 192.168.2.7. On Wednesday it became 192.168.2.4. Today it went back to 192.168.2.7.
I know this by applying the Embedded Web Service.
When I discovered this, I have learned to use Windows to un-install the printer (and the XPS version), find a printer, and then re-install it.
This seems to work (for now, at least) but seems pretty inefficient.
Why would the IP address change and what can I do to prevent that change?
