I have this old printer HP 2200 D. I just installed an EIO card and want to set it up as a home network printer.
Please help on how to do this.

Print the configuration page for the printer which will show you the ip address that the network card is using. If the card is set for DHCP then you are set, just configure your printer driver to use a Standard TCP/IP port with the address of the printer. If the card was used and has an manual IP address you will need to manually set your computer's network card to the same subnet so that you can connect and adjust the settings to match your current network or set it to DHCP.
For instance, if the printer has an address of 10.10.1.50 you would need to set the network card on your computer manually to 10.10.1.x (any number from 1-254 excluding 50). Then in a web browser, type the IP address of the card into the address bar on the browser which will take you to the embedded webserver of the card where you can configure it as stated above.
If the card has an password you will need to perform a cold reset on the printer with the card installed which will clear all the settings and revert the card to DHCP.
