Re: printer's MAC address
I was able to locate this information for you on tht Toshiba FAQ section of their tech support site. Here is it, verbatim:
How do I discover the MAC address of the Brother network card?
To discover the MAC address of your Brother network card you will need to print out a Network Configuration Report. To print this report complete the following steps:
1. On the Brother machine press MENU.
2. Use the up or down arrow key to scroll to PRINT REPORTS and Press OK.
3. Use the up or down arrow key to scroll to NETWORK CONFIG and Press OK.
4. Press BLACK START
5. The Network Configuration report will print. On the report, find the section labeled <(><<)>Ethernet Address>. (Example: <(><<)>Ethernet Address> 00-80-77-90-0a-8c) This is the MAC address of your Brother network card.

Connect the printer with a USB cord to the computer. Switch off the printer and install the driver in to your computer , during installation the software will tell you to switch-on the . Do so and finish the installation .
This is the procedure to connect the printer with your computer.
You have to connect the machine to the computer using a USB cable and install the S/W you got with the machine from the CD. That will have a TWAIN driver and some scanning S/W you can use to scan a document in to the computer, then you can email it. Please see document called Software user guide on the disc. If you don't have the CD you can go to Brother website and download the manuals and the S/W.
If I understand correctly you using MAC #s with your netgear router, you must find the mac address for that printer
1. if are given the printer a ip address type the ip address at the top of your web browser 220.127.116.11 example, they must display the mac address some where on the internal web page of the printer 2. Sometimes it is in the menu section of print itself under network connections. 3. added the MAC # under in internal web page of the netgear router

I have a MFC665CW connected wirelessly to a router and a pc connected by ethernet to the router, with a broadband satellite receiver connected to the WAN port of the router (plan to add another PC to the network soon, so have set up the network in advance). I had trouble with the brother status montior flashing 'Ready' then 'Offline' all the time, when I knew the printer was always connected to the network. I had set up the DHCP stuff on the router to allocate IP addresses to everything that connects to the network, like you are supposed to. I updated drivers and firmware, but the problem continued.
When I checked the router status log I saw that one MAC address in the network was making a DHCP request every 5 minutes (i.e. it was asking the router to allocate it an IP address at regular intervals). Every time the router answered that request it made the Brother status monitor go 'offline'. The MAC address was my broadband modem. I fixed the issue by setting the router to allocate a static IP address to the MAC id for my broadband modem (in the DHCP setup section in the router's admin interface). That stopped the dynamic IP address requests from the broadband modem and the Brother status monitor works fine now. I also set static IP adresses for the printer and PC to be on the safe side, although I don't think that matters.
So, check your network log and look for a MAC id that makes regular DHCP requests and then set a static IP address for it. Hope this helps you guys too.
