My printer receives an IP Address from a DHCP server. How do I set the IP address as STATIC to avoid the IP address from changing? How do I configure the Boot Method?


Description of Solution 200000022838

Brother strongly recommends assigning the printer a static IP Address. You can use the current IP Address or obtain a new IP Address from your network administrator or Internet Service Provider.

 

Print the Network Configuration from the printer by pressing the GO button three times. Look at the Network Configuration page for the Active network card to get the IP Address of the Brother machine.

 

1. Open an Internet web browser (ex. Internet Explorer).

 

2. Enter the current printer IP Address on the Address line and press the Enter key on the keyboard. This will display the printer's built in web management page.

 

3. Select Network Configuration. A login screen will appear. The default User Name is admin. The default Password is access. Click OK.

 

4. Click Configure TCP/IP.

 

5. Keep the same IP Address or enter the new IP Address in the IP Address field.

 

6. Next to Boot Method select Static.

 

7. Click Submit.

 

8. Close the Internet web browser.

 

9. Print the Network Configuration from the printer again by pressing the GO button three times. Verify the IP Address listed on the last page is the IP Address your network administrator or Internet service provider supplied to you. To the right of the IP Address, it will indicate (set manually).
