Where do I find the IP address for my epson RX620 printer.

I have windows 7 on a desktop connected through a Netgear DG834G v2 router, with the printer connected by USB, it works wirelessly, with my laptop and and now I want use it wirelessly with my iMac which asks for the IP address of the printer, I have looked everywhere but I cannot find it. While I still have most of my hair and my sanity can anyone tell me exactly how to find this IP address please.

Sorry for using the Google thing, but someone did it to me and I really think it is a bit of fun.

Run Belarc on your laptop see if it shows the printer and IP address.

Have you tried with the laptop on and check in router for attached devices which should show printer address.

It will be listed in your router's configuration pages. Unfortunately I am not familiar with Netgear routers.

Alternatively in W7 Open Network and you should see the printer listed, right click on and select and properties and at the bottom of the windows will be the IP address.

Since this question was posted I have wondered about my Epsons IP address and thanks to you I now Know. Though I might add that it is necessary to click on See full map then hover mouse cursor over the printer.

You can have a problem with dynamic allocation of IP addresses by the router and when the next time the PC and printer are switched on it looks for the old IP address which is now incorrect. I do not have this problem with my Epson wireless printer but I have allocated a static IP address to my Lexmark laser.

Chronus - I was using Network - not Network and Sharing Centre.
