Hp HP LaserJet 6P

Which jetdirects work with HP Laser 6P?

Hi - where would I find a list of the jetdirects (internal and external) that would work with an HP Laser 6P?
Thank you. Kevin
There are no internal JetDirects. Going to be hard to find an external one as most of them are USB and the 6P doesn't have a USB port.

The older external Jetdirect 170x, 300x, and EX-Plus will work. I have a 5P printer running with a 300x at one site

Of all of them the 300x is the best. The 170x is okay but limited to 10megabit network connections, and the old EX-Plus can be a bit nasty to set up, since it does not have a web interface and must either be configured through HP's webjetadmin software (ugly), or through telnet, which isn't as bad.

I've gotten them used through eBay for decent prices in the past.

If you buy one thus, make sure you check the model number to make certain you are getting an Ethernet device and not one made for Token ring.
