How Configure Permanent IP Address for Printer in Spectrum WiFi Router?

Mavens,

How can a Spectrum WiFi Router [Commscope (now Arris?)] Model SAC2V1A be configured to permanently assign an IPv4 Address (e.g., 192.168.1.x) to an HP LaserJet P1505n?

*Note: The P1505n in question is directly connected to the SAC2V1A via Ethernet.

Every ~3 days, the printer needs to be rebooted. Conjecture? The IP Address lease assigned to the printer by the SAC2V1A expires after 72 hours.

Thus this question: How can WiFi Router SAC2V1A be configured to permanently assign an IP Address to a printer?

Many, many thanks in advance for the assistance!

    Hi Plane_Wryter! Welcome to our community.

    You can find instructions to manage your routers settings by visiting https://www.spectrum.net/support/internet/advanced-home-wifi-advanced-settings/. Check the Port Forwarding and IP Reservations section which will tell you how to reserve the IP on individual devices such as the printer.

    That being said; The router should reassign an IP address if the current lease expires. Have you tried rebooting the router? Are you having issues with any other devices in your home?

    @William_M, thanks for the reply!

    I will read the reference your kindly provided.

    As for rebooting the router? Yes. As well as the cable modem (just for completeness) and, of course, the affected printer itself. No joy.

    Your response is appreciated!
