    According to the HP website, all these Jetdirect cards are compatible with
    my Designjet 650c but what is the difference between them? Is there a
    reason to pick on over another? It's an ethernet network.

    Without looking at each individual model you listed, you have to make sure that
    the card is an internal MIO card, not a newer EIO card. Next, it has to be
    Ethernet, not Token Ring, now pretty much obsolete and incompatible with
    Ethernet. Finally, especially if you are running a router or a hub capable of
    100Mbits/sec, you want an EIO card capable of that speed, in addition to the
    slower original 10Mbits/sec.

    Having said all that, really any MIO Ethernet card with an RJ45 connector will
    work for your purposes, and they are dirt cheap these days. Even free.

    Web JetAdmin allows you to access all the JetDirect card information plus status
    information for the device that the JetDirect serves. Depending on the age of
    the HP printer, you can also make configuration changes, all through your web
    browser... Ben Myers
