How can I change my printer IP address

I moved from dsl to cable and of course changed routers. I have three computers on a network and and an HP officejet J4680 which had a ip of 192.168.1.68 on the old network and everything worked well. On the new network the printer ip has changed to 192.168.1.2 and the computers can print to the printer ok however I cannot scan a document. The paperport software seems to be looking for 192.168.1.68 and I cannot find a way to get paperport to look to 198.168.1.2. The exact same problem exists with irfranview. Anyone out there can help?

  1. When you changed to the new network did you reinstall the printer on the computers? A good thing to do would to delete completely everything associated with the printer completely especially paperport and then reenstall the printer from scratch and reconnect the printer to the network and make sure you use the network install on the printer screen (if you have one).
