how to stop my printer ip address from changing

Why does the IP address keep changing on my printer?

One of the most common reasons for a printer to “drop off the network” is that it has obtained a new IP address. When a printer obtains a new IP address, print jobs fail as the printing port used on the computer to send print jobs is still configured with the old IP address.

Why does my IP address keep change every day?

Most ISPs allocate their range of IP addresses dynamically (using DHCP), and the “lease” is often set to 24 hours, which is why your address changes at that frequency. If you need to have a fixed address, you can ask your ISP for static address. I they offer this service at all, they will charge you for it.
