My modem is plugged into an Ethernet switch. The Ethernet card in my
computer and my printer are each plugged into the switch.
My modem has the address internally of 10.1.1. My printer's usually
10.1.1.2. My computer's usually 10.1.1.3.
However, recently on a number of occasions, I've discovered my printer
or computer has a different address.
No doubt, some command will tell me the current addresses of things
plugged into the switch, but I don't know which.
Could someone enlighten me as to the command?
Also, is there some way to force my printer and computer to keep their
usual addresses permanently? Otherwise, when I discover that my printer
isn't working or that my firewall's blocking connections, I have to
change the relevant settings temporarily to match the different numbers,
which is annoying.

I am wondering if there is anybody who might be able to guide me through
the use of the command line for setting up software, hardware, trouble
shooting and that in the process learn more on the art of programming.
