    For a few years I have had an HP laserjet 4050TN laser printer. I love the print quality and speed of this model. I originally got it with a J3111A 10mbps Jetdirect 600N card.

    Anyway, this week I picked up a J3113A 10/100mbps JetDirect 600N card. I installed it in the printer and printed a configuration page. It said the IP address of the printer is 192.168.20.25... doesn't this seem slightly odd?

    I can find the printer in OS X's printer utility, but in windows when I type in the IP address it does not find the printer. Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Is there a way to reset the IP address back to the factory default so I can use the online jet-direct config page?

    Keep in mind I don't have that printer or that jetdirect card...
    I think you will find that all jetdirects respond to:
    telnet {IP of Jetdirect}

    There, you can set a fixed IP address within your network, or turn on DHCP.

    Does that help?
