Which printer .. it will *normally* be listed on the printer itself.

It's the only wireless printer I have installed on the network, it's a Samsung CLP 325W



Many thanks

From the manual:
Quote
Printing network configuration report
You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine's control panel that will show the current machine’s network settings. This will help you to set up a network and troubleshoot problems.
To print the report:
In ready mode, press and hold the (cancel button) for about 5 seconds.
You can find your machine’s MAC address and IP address.
For example:

MAC
Address: 00:15:99:41:A2:78

IP Address: 192.0.0.192
Setting IP address
Firstly, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and managements. In most cases a new IP address will be automatically
assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server locatedon the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.

DHCP IP assignment:
Connect your machine to the network, and wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address in the report.

Static IP assignment:
 Use SetIP program to change the IP address from your computer.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network administrator to set this address for you


You could also do a sweep of your network with a simple Ping scan to determine which hosts are online (adjust to suit your network):
Code: [Select]
nmap -sP 10.0.0.0/24

Hi SeZo

thanks for your input

As far as I know I don't have a printer control panel, I originally set the printer up using the WPS facility in the router so it did it all automatically

The command you posted this, 192.168.2.1 is my gateway ip


Code: [Select]
graeme@Linux3 ~ $ nmap -sP 192.168.2.1/24

Starting Nmap 5.21 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-05-11 23:49 BST
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.1
Host is up (0.0017s latency).
Nmap scan report for Windows1 (192.168.2.2)
Host is up (0.049s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.5
Host is up (0.00025s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.17
Host is up (0.0080s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.100
Host is up (0.0055s latency).
Nmap done: 256 IP addresses (5 hosts up) scanned in 2.47 seconds
graeme@Linux3 ~ $

none of these show the printer
192.168.2.2 = A windows XP machine
192.168.2.5 = This PC
192.168.2.= My Grand-Daughters Linux PC
192.168.2.100 = Freenas Box


Many thanks

Hi again

Your command worked, when I tried it last night the printer was offline because it ran out of paper


Code: [Select]
Starting Nmap 5.21 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-05-12 07:44 BST
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.1
Host is up (0.0017s latency).
Nmap scan report for Windows1 (192.168.2.2)
Host is up (0.014s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.5
Host is up (0.00039s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.14
Host is up (0.015s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.17
Host is up (0.014s latency).
Nmap scan report for 192.168.2.100
Host is up (0.0072s latency).
Nmap done: 256 IP addresses (6 hosts up) scanned in 2.45 seconds

as you can see I now have an extra listing (192.168.2.14) which I confirmed is the printer by switching off and running the command again 

so nothing left to do but thank you once again for your help and mark this solved

You are welcome :)
One other thing you could try in your router is to pin that IP address  (192.168.2.14) to the printer in your DHCP settings.
[Edit]
You may need the MAC address for the printer for this to work
Code: [Select]
sudo nmap -sP -n 192.168.2.14
Or have a static IP address for everything else.
