How restore ip in the HP printer?

I have a HP Office Jet Pro 8000 A809 which have IP, but I change the gateway to so the printer should have, but I cannot find a way to change it.

How can I do that ?

EDIT: Reading the data sheet from HP, it says :

"Web browser: In a supported Web browser on your computer, type the IP address or hostname that has been assigned to the device. For example, if you are using an IPv4 network environment and the IP address is, type the following address into the Web browser: If you are using an IPv6-only network environment and the IP address is FE80::BA:D0FF:FE39:73E7, type the following address into the Web browser: http://[FE80::BA:D0FF:FE39:73E7]. The IP address and hostname for the device are listed on the network or wireless (some models only) status report. For more information, see Understand the network configuration or wireless (some models only) status report. After opening the embedded Web server, you can bookmark it so that you can return to it quickly in the future"

But I check my router and it didn't gives any ip to my printer..

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Have you tried reading the printer's manual? If it got lost, you can download a copy from HP. – ott-- Dec 22 '11 at 11:37

telnet to it and type "?" (I'm assuming it is connected via a JetDirect widget/box/card like most networked HP printers on the planet)

Of course, you will probably have to do this from a PC with an IP-address in the same network as the printer (IP-range and mask). This is why network people have laptops/netbooks/fancy-gadgets

'laser3' is the name of the printer in the network ? – Valter Henrique Dec 22 '11 at 11:58
@ValterHenrique: yes, but you should type your printer's old IP-address instead. – RedGrittyBrick Dec 22 '11 at 12:03
thanks, I type the Ip of the printer in my web browser and it works. I had to change the ip of my machine to it has the same subnet as the printer. – Valter Henrique Jan 3 '12 at 14:03
