Setting the new Zebra ZT410 printer with a static IP address from its front control panel is unintuitive, to say the least — the key is that you need to use the "Reset Network" option at the correct time during the setup process in order to get the new address to stay saved.

  1. Using the front control panel, hit the top left button (under the small icon of the house) to enter the menu system.
  2. Use the right arrow to navigate over to the third choice, "Network", and hit OK.
  3. Use the right arrow to navigate to "Wired IP Protocol", and then use the up/down arrows to navigate to "Permanent".
  4. Use the right arrow to navigate to "Reset Network", and then hit the top right button (under the word "Reset") to reset the network interface.
  5. Use the right arrow to navigate back around to "Wired IP Address", and then hit the top right button (under the word "Next") to highlight the first of the four fields. Using the up/down arrows, set this field to the correct first octet of the IP address. Then hit the top right "Next" button to highlight the second field, set it with the up/down arrows, and repeat to set all four fields.
  6. Use the right arrow to navigate to the next field, "Wired Subnet Mask", and repeat the steps from above to set this field.
  7. Use the right arrow to navigate to the next field, "Wired Gateway", and repeat the steps from above to set this field.
  8. Use the right arrow to navigate to "Reset Network", and again hit the top right button (under the word "Reset") to reset the network interface.
  9. Finally, hit the top left button twice to return back to the main screen.

At this point, the printer should have its network address set correctly.
