Hello. In order to keep the IP address from changing, you will need to set a manual IP on the printer. To do this on the printer itself, you will need to go into Setup, then Network settings. Go to Wireless/Wired LAN setup, and then General Network Setup. It will say Network Settings will be changed and you click Yes to continue. Click OK for the printer name, then when it gets to DHCP settings choose Manual. It should already have an IP assigned, so you don't need to change anything and just click OK to keep the settings. It will now have a manually assigned IP address rather than one being generated automatically.
