Power off the printer, then press “Feed” button in front and hold it, power on, release “Feed” button after 6 seconds, it should print a long page and find the IP address on it.
My example the ip address is 192.168.123.100
- Check your device network address, if you do not know, google it. (in windows system Run cmd and run ipconfig)
My network is 192.168.0.17
- Now we need change ip address of device (Not printer) to the same net section as the printer
If you do not know, google it how to change ip address in windows.
Here is how I setup my IP address
OK, now the device IP is 192.168.0.99, now they can communicate now,
Go back the to IP tool fold, click “GPETHERNET.exe”,
It display the printer IP address is 192.168.123.100, click “Connect Test” it should pop “Connect successfully”, click “Print” or “Cut Paper” it also should work.

Change the device IP to its original state,
Now if you restart GPETHERNET.exe and change “Printer Current IP address” to 192.168.0.28, click “Connect Test”, if it succeeds, then now the printer and device are now in right network section and connected.
