If I'm not wrong, the technician who set up your printer would already
have hard set the IP.

U don't have to.  All U need to do is reserve that particular IP for
your printer.  If your using your router as a DHCP server, do the
necessary configuration on the router administration page to ensure that
particular IP is always available to your printer.

Is this printer supported by CUPS?  Do U have the necessary CUPS drivers
installed?  If so, try the CUPS administration page at
