Setting an IP Address on the Printer's Control Panel

Network Menu
AUX Menu

After connecting the printer to the network, you need to set the IP address for the print server.

To set the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway from the control panel, follow the steps below.

Turn on your printer.

Press the Enter, Up, Down, or Back buttons on the printer's control panel once to enter the SelecType mode. The LCD panel displays Information Menu.

Press the Up or Down button until Network Menu appears. Then press the Enter button.

Check that Network I/F = On appears.

If Network I/F = Off appears instead, press the Enter button and then the Up or Down button to change to Network I/F = On. Then press the Enter button.

Press the Up or Down button until Network Config = No appears. Press the Enter button and then the Up or Down button to change to Network Config = Yes. Press the Enter button.

Press the Up or Down button until Get IP Address = Auto appears. Press the Enter button and then the Up or Down button to change to Get IP Address = Panel. Then press the Enter button. You can use the following methods to get an IP address.

Note:
  • To use Auto, a DHCP server must be installed and correctly configured on your computer. See the online help of your operating system for detailed instructions.
  • Choose PING only when setting the IP address using the arp/ping command.

Press the Up or Down button until IP = 0.0.0.0 appears. Press the Enter button.

Press the Up or Down button until the desired value appears. Then press the Enter button to set the value.

Note:
Repeat steps 7 and 8 to set the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.

Turn off your printer and then turn it back on. Be sure to wait until the initialization is complete.

Print a network status sheet to confirm the new IP address.

Note:
  • You must first set the IP address before using EpsonNet WebAssist.
  • See the Reference Guide for more information about settings on the printer's control panel.
