If you shop around you should be able to find an old JetDirect MIO
card that will slot into the back of it.  That's the best solution.
There's actually a bit of a glut of them so it shouldn't be hard to
obtain one.  I tried to eBay one a while back and couldn't get a
nibble even at $5.  Computer surplus places are a good place to look
for these cards, although you may have to take the printer that's
attached to it. ;)  IIRC they were the same from the original LaserJet
up through the LJ4.
