I have a small office P2P network with 3 computers and 2 printers. Everything works most of the time but I continue to lose communication with the HP Officejet L7555. I found that the IP address changed on it and I had to reload it on all the computers to get it to work. I want to set the IP address as static but can't see the printers on the Network & Sharing Center page nor on the Window Explorer page. I don't understand why they don't show up and how I can access the settings to change the printers to static IP. At home I can just click on the IP address in the printer properties. Thanks.
Sweet just make sure that the ip address you used was either from outside the pool of dynamic addresses on your dhcp, or get that address assigned to that mac address so it doesn't get reassigned to another device one day.
