HI Sven

My Network Printer Ip keep changing since I installed vista SP1 on all my home network. All my computer operate wirelessly now.

The IP address keep changing a daily basis. I never used to have this problem before.

My router is linksys WRT54G, it was working ok all the time with wifi capablity, my ip started changing last week for some reasons.


How can I stop this daily change, I want to have a specific address, this is starting to get annoying, as I have to manually reset all the IP ports configuration on every computers.


Thanks In advance

Mathew

Although this doesn't always happen, it's the reason that many suggest
setting static IPs for devices like network printers. You should be
able to do this using the printer itself, either through its front panel
or through any remote configuration utility that was supplied with the
printer.
