    Hi all.

    Trying to get my mom's old HP LaserJet 2100 hooked up to the new imac.

    What do you think is best?

    USB to Parallel interface?

    or the

    Usb card : J4135A card ?
    or Network card

    JetDirect card for Ethernet ?

    What seems like the morst reliable solution ?
    ..apart from replacing the printer.

    thanks
    Ian

    USB to parallel if it's the only computer connected. If more than device needs to use it then go with a jet direct card if you can get one.

    They're all reliable. It all depends on what you're looking to do with it.

    Thanks everyone I decided to go with the 615 card found it for $15
    locally. Installed in seconds, the mac found it,
    and selected it. Done !

    thanks for the help.
