HP4 printing via IP, is it possible?

I have a 7-year-old HP4 that I upgraded with a Postscript card and AppleTalk. I use an Ethernet adapter on the AppleTalk port so I can hook it up to my Ethernet network.

What I would like to do is to print to the HP4 using IP. Can this be done with this printer? If so, how do I find it's IP address?

The reason I want to do this is that I want to start using the HP4 with an Apple AirPort wireless setup and although I can hook up the wireless to my cable modem and hub they say I cannot use Ethernet bridging. My only hope would be to print using IP.

Not sure where ethernet bridging would come into play. If you've been able to print to it via ethernet before, plugging it into your isp's cable modem/hub is like any other hub or switch--it will pass full ethernet frames between devices so everything should just work like before.
