2.0 out of 5 stars Good printer, very bad network card, 12 Oct. 2010
This review is from: HP LaserJet P2055dn Network Laser Printer (Electronics)
These printers are good value until they decide that they won't stick to a static IP address and re-enable DHCP for no reason whatsoever. Once they decide to do this, they are useless. HP won't help and there's nothing you can do but reset the IP address by hand from the front panel because the built in web server invariably freezes solid.
Avoid unless you are going to use USB.

why give it a static ip when you could just have given it a ip reservation and left it on DHCP???

Mmmm, exactly. You could try reserving whatever IP you are wanting it to use on the DHCP server using it's MAC address. Easy enough. I would always rather do that than fix the IP on the device. ;-)

I just let my router (as the DHCP server) assign an IP address to it when I first connected it to my home network, then went into my router admin screens, found the entry for the printer and ticked the box saying "make IP static" ... printer is assigned same IP address even if I reboot router ... simples ....

I've used this printer for two years on a static IP without problem, but then that's on a Linux-only network. Maybe the problem is Windows networking, which I know from past experience can be a bit unreliable.
