Get the port number on the switch , if you stack you should get the switch number as well

You can use show int to list all the interfaces , get the switch port value e.g. gi/1/0.8

Use sh int gi1/0/8 to list the port details to make sure its up etc

Next run :

show mac address-table int gi1/0/8

( copy the address it gives you Address )

Next Run this

show arp | incl %macaddressofabove%

If it doesn’t show anything the device might not have an IP ( check port is on correct Vlan )

** A cheat , on a computer connected to the switch on the same Vlan and IP range , you can manually add an IP to the mac address then try and ping/access the device :

In Windows Xp

arp -s %spareip% %macAddress%

In Windows 7

netsh -c interface ipv4 add neighbors “Network Card Name” “IP Address” “MAC Address”

Most software that comes with nework printers ( HP, Brother or Lemark ) addprinters through a WDS Printer Port Interface. This is good when it works, because printers advertise themselves on networks so windows can find them as well as their device driver. Sometimes I find the WDS Service stops on local machines causing issues. Trying to diganose whether the problem is communication related between the computer and the printer or an actual printer issue is hard through WDS. If I go get issues I like to find the IP address of the device to ping it, as well as remapping the device through a Local TCP/IP address instead of WDS. To find the IP address of a printer using WDS in Windows 7 or Visata. If you right click on the print in Device and Printers, and click properties. You should be able to see the Web Services Tab. Click on this and at the bottom should be the IP Address. If the device responds a ping reply, then try changing the port to TCP.
