Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

I can't get the printer to share with my laptop

I have a Brother MFC 7420 printer and it will not print from the laptop via the network. I did the same things as with the last printer but it will not accept the "share this printer " on the laptop. After I hit "apply" and then "OK" I go back to the window and the " do not share this printer " is marked.
I have a WRT54GS Linksys Router and I'm using a USB cable directly to the back of the computer.

MFc 7420 is not the network printer, the printer either need to set up from one PC then share to another PC ONLY.
Or if you have server then you can share this printer, otherwise impossible.

I NEED TO INSTALL THIS PRINTER MFC-7420 on my laptop which do not have cd rom player


You have several options to do this:

- If you have spare PC, you may copy the content of the CD to a USB disk and install from the USB disk on the laptop
- Or you may just insert the CD on another computer on the network and share the CD-ROM drive by going to My Computer-Right Click on the CD Drive and click share. Now on your laptop go to My Network Places (usually on Control Panel) where you can see the shared CD drive from your other machine.
- Or if your laptop has internet access, visit Brother website and type your printer model to download the driver installer on your laptop machine.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Networking


It isn't a network printer since it only has a USB interface (no LAN port)
http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/MFC/ModelBrochures/Brochure_MFC240C.pdf

but you may purchase a print server if you want to share the printing function on your network (only the printing function can be shared). But some multifunction printers do not work with print servers due to driver issues. There are some users on the net who were able to make this work with an IOGEAR multifunction print server.

There is one Brother multifunction network printer that you may want to check:
