I've set up my HP Deksjet 3050A to print wirelessly. The trouble I have it I get power failures at my home and when the printer resets, the IP address takes the next IP address when the power comes back up. Most of the time, that means it doesn't grab the same IP address as was originally configured. This causes a problem with printing because when you set up the printer in Ubuntu, you have to list the IP address so the computer can connect to the printer.
The only way I have figured out on how to solve this problem is to delete the printer in Ubuntu and set it up all over again. Is there a way to change the IP address in Ubuntu or on the Printer so they match again and I don't have to remove and reinstall the printer each time? I know during the printer setup you can put in your own IP address so I could put something in at the end of the IP addresses but I'm not sure if the power failure will reset that option as well and still cause me the same problem.
