Hello Good People!
I would like to know whether a DesignJet 650C (C2858B) with a JetDirect Adapter can be installed via LAN on a PC running Windows 7 (64Bit)? If so, could anyone please give any advice on how to do so?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks ~ Tim

Yes, that is exactly the setup I have (with a JetDirect card installed in the 650c). Do the following:
Connect the 650c to your router with a LAN cable. Next, on the front panel press Enter, then down arrow three times to get to I/O Setup, Enter, Modular Setup, Enter, Cfg Network=NO, Enter, uparrow to Yes, Enter. At this point theCfg Network=NO* will reappear, this is normal. Press Previous to return to the main status menu. Next press Enter, down arrow until you get to Utilities, Enter, down arrow to Config Plot, Enter. Once the plot finishes look about half way down the page for the MIO setup information, the IP address for the plotter will be available on the right side of the page.
At this point your plotter is configured and ready, next get the driver installed on your PC. You can install the XP x64 drivers as described in this post, these drivers work fine for Windows 7 x74 (and also Windows 8 x64).

Thanks alot! Your advice worked.
I struggled abit as there was an IP conflict on my network that was causing my pc not to find the printer but finally I sorted it out. The printer is now working without any issues.
