    Correct - Im not sure if it's the same on all computers, but on mine, it's

    OK... so this worked before you made the change right?

    So you know what the address of the printer is... look at Printer Setting in VersaWorks. Write it down.

    So what you now have is a multi-homed computer, meaning that it has multiple networks. No problem. This is a common configuration.

    The steps will be a little different depending on your windows version.

    Basically you want to change the Network Adapter settings for the "Local Area Connection". On Windows 7 you would go to Control Panels > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings

    Select the Local Area Connection that you are using to connect to the printer. Right-click and choose "properties". Choose TCP/IPv4 and press properties.

    Here we will set the IP address of this adapter to be one number off of what VersaWorks is expecting the printer to be. For example, if VersaWorks is looking for a printer at then you will manually set the IP address for this adapter to be Next set the subnet mask to be Do not worry about the gateway... you can skip it. Apply the settings and exit.

    That's it. You should still be able to surf using your wireless, and you should now see the printer in VersaWorks.

    Still having issues? PM me and I will try to assist.

    Make sure you turn the main power off on the printer and than reboot.
