It would not be asking you for a password if one was not set.  The only way to get rid of the existing password is to do a factory reset on the JetDirect card.

A "cold" reset will restore everything to factory settings, including wiping out the administrator password. You will have to manually reconfigure the printer settings so you will want to print the configuration page first.

To perform a cold reset, power off the printer.
Press and hold the green button while turning back on the printer.
Release the green button when you see "Cold Reset" in the printer's control panel.
The printer will be assigned a DCHP address if available so after waiting a minute, print out another configuration page to get the new IP address or you can manually configure one through the control panel.
