Do you have DHCP enabled?  If so, then the JetDirect box should get an IP.  Then you press down the button on the box for a few seconds and a test page should appear with the IP Info.

You can also download webJetAdmin from HP, install it (I believe you'll also need a fairly current version of java from sun ( Then you should be able to modify the IP/networking info.  It's been a while and I don't quite know where my  JetDirectEx box is right now...

Let me clarify - DHCP SERVER setup?
The HP Web Jetadmin tools will detect all Jet Direct divices on your network by mac address.  Once they are found, you can adjust all of the settings:
