Client has an old HP laserJet 5Si Mx printer with a MIO Jet Direct card.  Need to change IP settings on card but no one has the software.  Not even certain of what card it is; printer is 6 years old.  Can anyone point me to the CORRECT link on the HP site?  Computers running Windows XP.

You can do it from the menu on the printer I think.
You might need to be in service mode
To get to service mode.
Turn on printer while holding down 'job cancel' and 'select.
When three light come on pres 'menu' then 'select'
Printer will start up in service mode.
You will then get a service menu after initialization by pressing the menu key
Press MENU, repeatedly, until one of the following messages appears on the control panel:
