How to Assign Static IP Address to Printer? A Step-by-Step Guide

There are three ways you can assign a static IP address to a printer.

  • First, using the touch screen of the printer.
  • Second, through the Embedded Web Server (the webpage that you see when you enter the printer’s IP address on a web browser.
  • And lastly, through the router portal.

Using the Printer’s Touch Screen

  • If your printer has a touch screen, all you need to do is navigate to Wi-Fi settings and choose the TCP/IP settings.
  • There, you can easily assign a static IP to your printer.
  • Make sure you do not assign the IP that is already in use by other devices. It will create another issue again😫

Using the Embedded Web Server of Your Printer

This method is for you if you have the current IP address of your printer readily available.

I have written a dedicated guide on how to find the printer’s IP address. You can consult this if you haven’t already.

  • Alright, once the IP address is in your hand, open a web browser on your computer and load the printer’s IP there.
  • Navigate to Network Settings from there and choose the TCP/IP settings.
  • Fill the details like IP address, subnet mask, and gateway.
  • For the subnet mask and gateway details, open command prompt on your computer and type ipconfig > press Enter.

Assign Static IP Via Router Portal

Finally, you can also use the router portal to do the needful. The only thing is you should have username and password to login to the router.

  • Once you’re at the router configuration page, see for DHCP Clients List, Devices List or the term that read similar to this.
  • You’ll see the printer’s current IP and MAC address there.
  • Note it down and now go to Address Reservation. Your router may have a different term for this function. But you’ll find it anyways. If you’re having trouble, see the router manual.
  • Under the DHCP Address Reservation field, enter the printer’s IP, MAC and save it.

That’s all. You successfully assigned a static IP address to your printer. You won’t face any wireless connectivity issues due to IP conflicts now.

Please let me know if you are having difficulties choosing the IP or anything related to the topic. I will reply to you ASAP🙂
