Using a large format printer like the HP LaserJet 5000 GN allows businesses to consolidate their printing needs into a single unit, eliminating the need for costly personal printers and the maintenance that comes with them. Once the 5000 GN is in place, all business owners need to do is connect it to the company network, configure a static IP address for the unit and start printing.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Menu" button until you see the "EIO" menu. Click "Item" until you see "Cfg Network=No." Press the "Value" button to change the "No" to a "Yes."

  2. 2

    Press the "Item" button and go to "Cfg TCP/IP." Use the "Value" button to change the setting to "Yes."

  3. 3

    Click the "Item" button and choose "IP Byte 1." Use the "Value" button to set the first number in the IP address. The IP address consists of four numbers between 0 and 255, each separated by a period. Your network administrator can give you the address to use.

  4. 4

    Press the "Select" key to accept the first digit in the IP address. Click the "Item" button to go to the "IP Byte 2" option. Set that number using the "Value" buttons, then click "Select" to accept the choice. Do the same with the "IP Byte 3" and "IP Byte 4" options.

  5. 5

    Click the "Menu" button and choose "Print Configuration" from the list. Click "Select" to print the configuration page. Review the network section of the configuration page to make sure the IP address is set correctly.
