The Lexmark E332n is a laser printer that can either be attached directly to a computer or it can be installed on a network. Depending on your network configuration, this might require some modifications, such as configuring a static IP address, to the E332n network settings during installation. However, if the printer needs to be moved or if the network settings have changed, then these settings may no longer be correct. Fortunately it is possible to reset the printer to its default configuration, which includes a dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) setting, meaning that the printer will have its IP address assigned by the network.

Tips and warnings

  • If your Lexmark E332n is only going to be used on one computer, consider installing it as a local printer. This can decrease wait times for print jobs.
