    Any method can I change the IP address in XP?
    I have many network printer which need to modify the ipaddress like network mask,gateway,ipaddress. It too hard to press the key in fornt of the printer LCD panel. The printer all is HP 3800,4250...

    thx.

    Not unless the printer itself has web administration. If it does then you can go its current IP address using a web browser.

    Note, not all printers allow you to change IP addresses via web administration.

    Going forward I recommend you set the devices to DHCP and then just use MAC address reservations so they stay the same, if you even want to go that far. This way, changes going forward can be pulled down automatically and save you this headache :)

    Does HP Still provide the JetAdmin interface?

    Webjetadmin, and they sure do. But it isn't supported by all models AFAIK
