IP clash of printer and router


BGT

Likes # 0

I have recently changed my broadband router and the IP address has changed from X.X.1.1 to X.X.1.247. Previously I had set the IP address of my HP printer to X.X.1.247 so it now clashes with my new router. When I try to access the printer's set up page to change it I of course go to the routers home page. How can I change the printer's IP?

Why not change the router's IP to X.X.1.1 and leave your printer as it is. Just make sure you include the 247 in the range for Auto DNS.
