    Are you looking for a network card for the printer itself or for your computer?

    I believe the LaserJet 4MP is a standard IEEE 1284 parallel printer. Why not just connect it to your computer's parallel port and share it over the network through your computer?

    Decent 10/100 PCI network cards are going for about $20US these days.

    We still have an old 4m+ floating around the office. It has an internal network card. They are totally different from the 20$ compusa standard network card

    Those network cards are called JetDirects. HP makes them. They also make external JetDirects. I think they are about 150-200 USD. Order them through your local reseller or HP.com.

    Hookup is pretty simple. In one end is the paralell, the other end is a 10/100 ethernet cable. Think of them as a parallel to network converter

    hope that helps

    thanks!

    i didn't want to run it through a computer since i'm getting ready to set up a mac/pc network and i wasn't sure if the mac would see it if attached to a pc or vice versa. if i was running something like dave or pc/maclan, could the both os' see the printer?
