How to Set a Static IP Address on a Dell 1320C Printer

By Eric Love

The Dell 1320C Network Color Laser Printer offers fast, high-quality printing at 12 color pages per minute. The printer has a compact layout at 15.6", 16.6" deep and 14.8" high. User authentication and network connectivity make it excellent for small office environments where a few users need to share a speedy machine with a small footprint. The Dell 1320c's network connection requires a DHCP enabled ISP or Router. If you must use a static IP address, it can be configured from the printer's Web browser once it has retrived a network IP from DHCP.

Things You'll Need

  • DHCP enabled router
  • Dell 1320C

Step 1

Plug the Dell 1320C into your router using an Ethernet cable.

Step 2

Press and hold the "Continue" button on the front of the printer for three seconds. A test page will begin printing that shows the IP address of the printer on your network.

Step 3

Open your browser and go to the number listed next to "IP Address" on your printout. You will be asked to supply a user name and password

Step 4

Enter the user "admin" without quotes and leave the password blank.

Step 5

Click "IP Configuration" and enter the IP address you would like the printer to use. It will demand this IP from the router every time it attempts to connect.

Step 6

Click "Yes" when asked if you would like to restart the router.
