First of all you should give Ip Address to your Network printer then the connect the Network cable which is come from Switch or Router to your Network Printer.

You want the IP address of the printer to be consistent. There's a few ways to do this:

1) manually enter the network info (address, gateway, subnet) into a printer via control panel (or web interface, if it gets one via DHCP & you can connect)
2) reserve an address in DHCP for it. You'll need the printer's MAC address, sometimes you can get that from a status printout. This is better than choice 1 because now the router won't assign the manual address to another device.
