How do I find the network address for an HPIII laserjet with network card ?  I've tried the Test Print....no help, doesn't say jack about the address....the HP manual doesn't even approach it....and HP's homepage doesn't either....any ideers (deliberate misspelling to enhance humor on a dull site) ?

When you say network address, are you talking about the printer's IP address?  We have a network here, and the printer is always referred to as HP.

Nope...actually it is the MAC address for the card in order to be seen on the network...
On most HPs, a Test Page print or Config or Setup print will tell the LAN orMAC address...I can't find that function on the HP III

You can find the MAC address of the card by pulling the card out and looking for a bar-coded stick-on lable with the address on it.  It will look like AD:0060b0xxxxxx under the bar code
