    You are not making much sense. Expressing yourself in full sentences will not cost you any money and the few extra minutes won't kill you either.

    How exactly did you install the drivers? Were you asked about the IP address of the printer?

    The EStudio 202L is a business class copier/printer.

    You need to ensure that the device is correctly installed, eg
    can you at lease ping the address you assigned?

    With a static ip address, you also need to make that address at the top of your
    network;
    eg if your router is at 192.168.0.1, then place the printer at 192.168.0.254
    this way you can have 252 systems attached without address conflicts.

    When you install the printer software, there should be a Print Test Page button.
    did that EVERY work for you? if not, then the install is wrong -- uninstall and start over.

    Is that thing supposed to support JetDirect (raw TCP/IP printing) at all? (Maybe the support is buggy?) Do you have any other port types available in addition to TCP/IP and Local? Some network printers install their own protocol drivers.

    You can try setting the TCP/IP port to lpd mode - this helps with some printers. Try toggling the SNMP status setting too.

    Try installing the printer using a "Local port" (SMB printing), may need some manual reading in case you need to use a specific share name.
