Where should I be seeing the NetStat tab? Not in the Network Utility that I can see. I know I have used it in the past, but do not find it now.
I would explicitly set a manual IP address for your printer, rather than let it take one from the DHCP server on your router. That way, if the router changes the printer's IP address, you don't lose the connection on your Mac. You should be able to set the IP on the printer's control panel.
That having been said, if it supports Bonjour, then you should be able to use that instead of mucking about with IP addresses.

There should be a Netstat tab in the Network Utility. Might be different under Tiger, however.
