We tried to use the HP WinNT4 driver for the Laserjet 6L. Now, printing works, but slow.
Under Win95 i changed settings to HPGL to make it faster :-)
How can I do this using this NT driver?

Why don't you download the newer driver from HP's web site to see if it speeds up any?

I hope this helps.

There is "naughty" way around this.

Use a driver from a previous HP model, e.g. HP Laser Jet III.  The PCL  (printer control language) supported by newer models is a superset of that on the old.

Be aware you may loose a couple of the flashier features on the 6L, but for basic wordprocessing etc. you should be okay (i.e. you might not want to try this is your a graphic design professional - but then again you'd probably not be using an HP Laser Jet anyway)
