HI

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

It you don't want it to change then configure the Pirnter with a Static
Address via whatever utility they give you to do that with. With comercial
grade printers you can do it with Telnet and a commandline.

Which "should" be the recommended settings for any / every printer
connected to a network.
