    This is how we do it - we have shed loads of these printers and they work fine. I didnt know about the factory reset on the button though - just waiting for the kids to find out about that one

    That's what I do for most devices that want a static IP as it also means you can easily keep track of available addresses, and change the IP number if you ever want to without having to visit the printer, although i know you can do this in the web console of most printers these days anyway, but nice to have it all in one place.

    Just don't put too many of them on one server, one of my sites is addicted to these little pieces of junk from a hardware and cost perspective (they brought like 15 in one go ) but there is a rather large issue with them. At least for us their drivers leak memory like an open water main.

    They leak this memory from the non-paged pool which means that when it fills up it simply fails out all of the primary services as they run out of memory. We have to restart the print spooler service every 30 minutes to keep that server running. We have tried several drivers all of which still cause the problem.
