I use IP reservations (in the router - or whatever is doing
dhcp) for this purpose.

Especially useful if your dhcp sever does a local dynamic dns

You still have the single subnet issue of course.

There's 5 or 8 Android print programs that find local printers just fine if
they are on the same subnet. I've gravitated to PrintHand Premium of late, but
its far from the only one.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
