HP laserjet 5000 firmware upgrade

Hello Forum

I have the above mentioned printer and would like to know what is the best way to upgrade its firmware. I recently upgraded its RAM to 64MB and upgraded the jetdirect card firmware to current version. The printer firmware is dated 980311 MOBY3.65

Thank you

Re: HP laserjet 5000 firmware upgrade

Another little problem with jetdirect card.
I upgraded its firmware using the HP download manager, to the current version available. G.08.49. (jetdirect card is J3113A)
Problem is that the card connects at 100mbit HALF duplex? The manual for the card says it supports 100mbit FULL duplex.
I tried connecting my laptop to the printer with a network crossover cable. Set the laptop to autonegotiate and it connects half duplex. If i force the laptop to 100mbit FULL duplex, the network connection drops.This problem was evident before the firmware upgrade, i was hoping the upgrade would have resolved it. Any ideas?
