comment static IP outside of subnet range
The router is a Cisco EPC3925 with modified firmware (but those modifications appear minor), the printer a HP LaserJet 1320 series printer. And there are a few switches in between. I could check what those are, if that matters.

About DHCP: yes, that was what I was trying to say. I'm not really looking for a solution, I am looking for an explanatiom what is going on here. Unfortunately, the router is now password-protected, so I can't take a look at the routing table.

For other reasons that go beyond the scope of this question, he attached the printer via an USB cable so networking issues were 'resolved'. He was unable to change the IP address in Windows, but that turned out to be unnecessary due to the USB connection. Still wondering why the printer did work for a moment. Maybe if I know why it worked (and know why exactly it should not work) I can convince a few people to use a more sane network config for the printer.

The DHCP range is 192.168.1.x, where x is in the range of 10-128. I don't know the router config before the reset aside from the standard gateway, but it did have a DHCP server.

Yes, the router is also a DHCP server, but that didn't change with the reset. The printer was simply given a static IP-address outside the DHCP scope. Other than that, it's a normal consumer router with NAT etc.
