To Find out which IP to assign
Do a Quick Search of a subnet – eg. enter 130.216.170.
Note there are 2 listed without a mac address, do not use a printer address…modify “jbri002” (change the naming convention while your at it)

If there is not one available, create one (find a the next sequential IP number not listed in the range)
