Re-issuing IP addresses to network printers (HP 2600N)

Network printers
I have a couple of HP 2600N printers on my network, I issued them static IP's and also passworded them. Mistakenly I removed them from the DHCP server, now I cannot access them thru web interface and even when I tried manually reset it so that it can pick IP addresses from the DHCP server, it did not work. How can I reset them to pick IP automatically from d the DHCP Server? OS: Windows Vista Business 32 bit DHCP Server: Mikrotik

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hmm I don’t know what you did to the device but you can reset it to factory defaults and then it will grab the dhcp automatically again.

To do it just follow these simple steps:

Cold-reset, which power-cycles the engine with a special button press, is not supported for this printer. Instead, use the feature “Restore defaults” located in the Service menu to reset default settings.
Restoring the factory-set defaults
Restoring the factory-set defaults returns all of the settings to the factory defaults; however, it will not affect the embedded network solution settings.
Restore the factory-set defaults

1. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Service, and then press (SELECT).
2. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Restore defaults, and then press (SELECT).

The device automatically restarts.

It will come back up and grab your dhcp auto configured address.

    Bchika, Just to make sure... You reserved IP's for these printers on the DHCP server correct. Well, I can't see why you cannot just add them back in the reservation section. You should be able to get their mac addresses off the printers themselves. Restart DHCP and you should be good. Or, depending on your DHCP config you could exclude those IP from DHCP for now and then add static IP to the printers.... Cheers, Vincent
