If this is a wireless printer then all you need to do is set an address reservation on your router and then set up a fixed IP port on your printer driver.

First: Install the printer driver as a normal USB printer by connecting the cable during the install process dont use the wizard if you can help it.

Second : Find your MAC address for the printer (all types of Network Cards MUST have one) this will either be in the LCD control panel or on the bottom of the printer on a label and set this in your admin panel of your router to say 192.168.0.10 for example. You can normally enter this using 192.168.0.1 but all routers are different. Check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com/

Last : Goto the printer driver properties for the USB printer you have just install click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install.

    Technically that's a DHCP reservation not a Static IP.

No ip info on menu


There is a tiny button on the print server back plane that you can press with a paper clip. This will print out a label with your IP address information. Get the IP address (hope that the printer is set for DHCP) and enter this into a web browser. This will take you to a web interface that will let you make configuration changes to the print server and printer. If the printer is set to static IP, change the IP address of your PC to be in the same subnet as the printer and then fire up the browser.
The user name for the printer is ADMIN and the password is 1234 by default. You can also download ZebraNet Bridge from Zebra's web site. This application will find your printer on the network and let you install fonts, upgrade firmware, change settings, etc.

i assume that your printer is connected to a network. if so, it could be that the printer is set to use dhcp for the ip address. and if that's the case, it's better to set the printer to use static ip address since there would come a time that the dhcp server (a router most of the time) would provide another ip addresses to all the devices connected to it. that could be the reason why you are getting a "no connection" message (disconnecting and reconnecting it at times would solve the problem temporarily).

here are the steps on how to set static ip on the printer using a windows computer.(Note: the installation cd can automatically assign a static IP address as long as the printer does not obtain a dynamic (dhcp) address)

- boot up your computer the normal way so it'll get an ip address from your dhcp server
- then turn off your dhcp server so that the printer will not get any ip address via dhcp
- reset the printer to set its factory default configuration (with no dhcp address)
* unplug the printer from the power
* plug the power cord back in while holding in the printer’s
report button (it will try to find a dhcp server; after about three
minutes of no dhcp response, the printer will default to a static ip address of 192.0.0.192

- then print a configuration page to confirm that the ip address of the printer is set to 192.0.0.192

- then press the report button (wait until IP address is 192.0.0.192 before proceeding. if it remains set to 0.0.0.0, check the network cable connection to the printer and to the network is secure. If some other address appears repeat steps 3 and 4 until the default address appears
- you can now start the software installation cd

*during the installtion, follow these steps:
- select the model of the printer that you are using which is hp officejet before clicking on "next"
- then select "do network settings for me, then press "next
*follow the instructions on the remaining install screens
- the software will pick an ip address in the private 169.254.x.x range (not available on the open Internet) and permanently assign it to the printer. it will also set up a static route to that address in the computer’s printer configuration
- turn the dhcp server back on by turning on the dhcp server by
connecting your cable/dsl modem or dhcp to the network. because the hp now has a permanent static ip address, it will
no longer try to use dhcp server to get an address
- install the software on the other computers on the network who will be using the printer. the installation software will discover the hp printer at the 169.254.x.x address, and will add the static IP address in each computer’s printer configuration

Note: if the installation cd will permit you to change th private ip address from 169.24.x.x, it's better to set it on the same range as of the ip address given by your dhcp server (for example your dhcp server provides ip addresses starting from 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.250, set the printer's ip address to 192.168.1.59-below or any ip address that will not compromise any ip addresses that were already being used by your other devices)

hope this'll help you but if you'll have other concerns just ask me.

ciao!
