ip conflicts with kyocera printer

Hardware Version R8000
 
Firmware Version V1.0.4.28_10.1.54
 
GUI Language Version V1.0.4.28_2.1.49.1
 
LAN Port  
 
MAC Address E8:FC:AF:FC:C5:BB
 
IP Address 192.168.1.1
 
DHCP On
 

Hello,

 

I have a Kyocera printer fs-9500 hardwired via ethernet cable. the problem Iam having is the router doesn't show the printer under attached devices. As a result it's giving me ip conflicts with the printer. The printer has a static ip address. I've changed it to 192.168.1.36. It works fine with this address but still does not show up on attached devices so I always have to be on the lookout for ip conflicts. DHCP on the printer is set to off. Any idea how I can fix this?

   I know nothing about the problem with the "Attached Devices" report,
but I've seen similar reports about such models, so I'd guess that some
future firmware update might help with that.

   As for the IP address, ...

> [...] DHCP on the printer is set to off.

   Why?  If you need the printer to be at some fixed IP address, then
you could reserve an address for it in (the DHCP server in) the router.
Of course, if the "Attached Devices" report doesn't show you the MAC
address of the printer, then you might need to get that datum from the
printer itself.

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Reserve LAN IP
Addresses".

   Or, you could assign a static address on the printer, but, if you do
that, then it must be an address which is _not_ in the router's DHCP
address pool.  In the same manual, look for "Specify the IP Addresses
That the Router Assigns".

   By default, Netgear makes the DHCP address pool as big as possible:
".2" - ".254".  If you want to use static addresses, then you'd need to
shrink that DHCP address pool, to make room for some static addresses.
For example, you could shrink the pool to, say, ".2" - ".199", and use
".200" - ".254" for your static addresses.  (Or ".100" - ".254" for the
pool, and ".2" - ".99" for the static addresses, in which case, your
existing ".36" for the printer should be safe.)

@antinode's recommendations are spot on.

 

My DHCP pool is 192.168.1.100 ~ 150

 

I use 192.168.1.2 ~ 99 for Reservered IP's

 

Once you reseve an IP by MAC, it doesn't matter what the device's network interface it set as (DHCP or Static) the router will only ever give the assigned IP to the network device with the specific MAC regardless of when it connects on the network.

   Not really.  If you assign a static address to a device ("static"
means configured on the device itself), then nothing you do on the
router involving DHCP matters at all (to that device).  A device with a
static address doesn't ask for or get an address from the router (DHCP
server).

   Except, of course, that if that address is in the DHCP pool, then
(the DHCP server in) the router could offer it to some other (DHCP
client) device.

Thanks for the fast reply,

 

Why is DHCP set to off? I have no idea. The company I bought the printer from set it up that way. However, reserving the ip address sounded like the most reasonable fix. So, that's what I did. It's still not showing up on the connected list but it's on the reserved table and it seems to be working ok.

 

I am a novice at this stuff and am just finding my way so I certainly appreciate the help. Thanks again...

   In a corporate environment it may make more sense to assign static
addresses to various devices.  (I have a pile of old systems here which
are configured that way.  And, a very small DHCP pool.)  But, if you're
using DHCP for everything else, then you might as well use it for the
printer, too.  And, if for some reason, you need some device to have a
fixed address, then address reservation can make that happen.

   Glad to hear that you got it to work.
