How do I get Windows 7 to Automatically Update when my wireless printer changes IP addresses?

Is there a way to get Windows 7 to automatically realize that my wireless printer has changed its IP address, and update accordingly? I have to change it manually every time and its annoying me.

"Is your router the one running DHCP (ie, handing out IP addresses)?

If so, you may want to see if there's a way to set the router to always issue the same IP to the printer - whether this is possible and how to do it would be based on what time of router you have.

The other option would be to turn off DHCP and manually set all the IP addresses on your network."
