HL-5250dn ona Bonjour network will not work with Leopard

My HL-5250DN Brother printer has been working perfectly on a Bonjour network with Tiger (Mac software).  I upgraded to Leopard, and it will print one page ok, then locks up when trying to print anything more.  I have to delete the printer, then add a new printer.  Then it will print one more page, then lock up.  Any ideas I have exactly the same problem. The Brother HL-5250dn works just fine after I set up on one of my Macs. As soon as I try to connect a second one (we have three in the house), not only doesn't that work, but it's then impossible to get the first Mac to print again. I've spent two days trying to fix the problem. I don't think there will be any solution until Brother gets around to producing a working driver for OS 20.5

You may be right about the Brother software developers but the problem is in the print queue. I had a Mac customer that had 151 print jobs waiting without knowing. Once I cleared that queue all was good. ~Steve

    I think you just have start from the begining, uninstall the driver and connect the first computer and start istalling one by one . It should work.

As you don't mention which OS your Mac is running, I'll try and answer assuming you have 10.6 or 10.5
The Brother uses the older network protocol, so the Default or Bonjour won't work.
Easiest way in 'Add Printer' is to select IP and enter the ip address you used in the web browser. Then your 5250 should appear in the list with the correct driver. If your using 10.5, you might need to go to Brother's web site and download the latest drivers.
All the options such as Duplex etc. will work with 10.5/6

I want to find the MAC address on a Brother HL-5250DN mono laser printer. We run on a Windows XP Ethernet network. Is there a report page I can print straight from the Printer?


Go to Printers and Faxes.
Right click on the printer and select Properties.
Toward the bottom, click on Printing Preferences...
Click on the Support tab.
Click on Print Settings.

This should give you three pages. The third page has the network settings including Ethernet/MAC address.
