Last week, the 615 reset its IP adress to the default instead of the static IP that it was assigned. To reconfigure, I uninstalled printer and set up new one. All was then working fine, untill.....
Yesterday I received notice that the printer was unavailable. I examined the JD615 and noticed that the network light were not lit at all. I have tried removing the JD, and cold restart. Also HP Install Network Printer does not see printer.
So far nothing has worked. When I print out the 2200 config page, it states that the EIO slot is empty (although JD is installed)
Is my JD dead or perhaps just sick?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Solved! Go to Solution.

BTW, if the JD is not connected to the network, would the LaserJet configuration detect it? In other words, would it report the EIO slot as "empty" if not connected to network?

As a temporary fix I connected the printer to a local machine via a parallel cable and am sharing it.
Suppose I'll have to get another JD card. Does it matter what I get?

But I can replace the JD610n with any JD6xx printer server? A 615 will work? A 620n as well?
Thanks, and sorry for my ignorance.

I replaced the 615 JD with a 610 JD and everything works fine.
Also, by using the 610 instead of the 615, I saved about $200 (615 is $320, 610 is $120).
Thanks again for all of the input.

I have a 2300 DTN, my collega tryed to upgrade owers and by the Mac was it not possible. he tryed and get a lot of pages. After that he quit. I tryed to ip print to the printer by mac and pc and that did not work.
After x-mas eve en 2e X-mas day the printer is on the newest software working bij parralel but no Jetdirect 615 anymore. Isnt that strange. It is just gone.
What to do now ( get waranty bij HP )

I have had two JD 615s die on me in the last couple of years, in two different printers. They just seem not to be very good. I've never had an external print server fail, so I'll be fitting the printer with one of those instead (plus they're cheaper than the JD cards!)

All Three EIO slots report empty, but I have pluged in the new card into slot 2 and the old card is still in slot one.

I have had a total of 4 JetDirects fail - ALL in the 2300 printers! One printer killed a 610N AND the replacement 620N!
This is a bit too coincidental for me.

After swichting off and on my hp laserjet 4100, there is no communication to the printer. The jetdirectcard (615n) isn't recognized by the printer.
The only workaround: cold reset.
Then the printer recognized the jetdirectcard.
A technican told me: the 600/610/615 are horrible cards!
Swicht to the 620n ore later.
