Use your Browser. IE, if you are using Windows and Internet Explorer, put the following in your IE's address:
The 192.168.x.XX is the IP address from the second page of the Config printouts. This is to access the Built In Web Server on the printer. From there, you should see one tab that is configuration or something to that extend. Go through teh Setup page. Change the Setup from DHCP to Manual. Leave the Subnet Mask, Default Gateway alone.

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1
So I change the IP address of the printer to:
It is still in teh DHCP range but I know I'll not have more than 10 computers in my network simultaneously that the 192.168.2.50 address will never be handed out by the DHCP Server (My Router). Setting the IP address of teh printer to fixed has its advantage and it is the right way to setup Network printer. Follow the attached document to add IP base printer to yoru computer(s).
