HP jet direct 300x won't recognize printer. How to upgrade firmware?

Last Modified: 2013-12-15
We have a brand new HP Laserjet 2300 printer hooked up to a HP jet direct 300x with 3 ports on it.

When I use the HP install wizard, it recognizes the HP laserjet 2300 as a Sentronic Plotter printer. I guess that's why our LJ2300 refuses to print properly because it's a newer printer on an older Jet Direct.

So I guess the question is, how do I upgrade this older jet direct to recognize my new LJ2300 printer
