IP reservation?

Postby kylehart » Thu Jul 11, 2013 7:36 pm

Our meeting house has three units on a LAN with one of the church's Cisco Wireless Gateways.

We have a wired network printer but for whatever reason (perhaps it gets turned off and on and remains off for a week at a time) the printer gets a new IP address frequently, breaking the connection to the printer.

The local ward doesn't have access to the Cisco device.

Who would have access to put in a DHCP reservation for our printer so it is assigned the same IP address every time?

Check with the Stake Technology Specialist.

Note that no one in the local area has access to the DHCP. Only CHQ. So the usual way it's handled is to set the printer to a static IP address. There's a small static IP pool set aside for each building, but needless to say, that has to be coordinated.

if he doesn't point him to https://tm.lds.org it'll have the ranges the printer can be set to.
