To find out a printer’s IP address, press Menu or Setup on the printer's screen, go to Networking, and then press Enter. Navigate through the provided network options, and select TCP/IP or IP Address. The exact process of checking a printer’s IP address varies depending on the type of printer.
To check a printer’s IP address in Windows XP, click Start on the Windows task bar, and select Printers and Faxes. Double-click on the particular printer, and then double-click See What’s Printing to open the print queue dialog box.
Click Printer on the top-left corner of the dialog box, and select Properties from the shortcut menu. Open the Ports tab on the new window, and click the check box next to your printer. Click the Configure Port button, and then check the IP address in the Printer Name or IP Address field.
