Hi Tom,

There are quite a few BEFSR41 models, and looking at one of
the manuals, it's not exactly obvious what to do.

Your printer will be best given a fixed IP address, but it's
not obvious how to allocated this in the router.

I suspect a call to Linksys would be worth it.

George.

Hi,
I know this isn't strictly gui-related, and I hope for some
lattitude on 
this one.

At work, we have ten computers on a simple peer-to-peer
network, all 
connected through hubs to a Linksys BEFSR41 router.  Because
the router is 
acting as a DHCP server, each computer is given a dynamic IP
address.  We 
want to share a newly-acquired printer on the network, and
the printer 
apparently has server capability built into it. So, as I
understand it, the 
printer must be assigned a specific IP address on the
network in order for a 
computer to reliably connect to it. My question is how one
would go about 
doing that in the router setup if the router is assigning IP
addresses via 
DHCP? Can you have static addresses for some devices such as
this printer 
and dynamic addresses for everything else?  I'm new to this
stuff so no 
flames, please.
Thanks in advance.
Tom
