Hi Harumorani,
Yes the fax can be connected to your computer to use as a printer as well.
There is a small square hole at the back of the machine coverred with a piece of plastic.
It is a USB connection.
You will need a USB printer cable and in the box that the machine came in is a CD with the relative drivers.
If you for some reason no longer have the driver CD then log onto the "brother solutions Centre" web site at http://www.brother.com .under product support select USA English.
Fourth line down , second box from the left click on FAX from the drop down list select Fax2820 Select downloads.
Step 1 select "drivers"
Step 2 select your current operating system
Step 3 select language English
click on search
Next pop-up screen select "more information " on the package that suits your previous entries
Next screen select download.
This will install the printer driver and you should be up and printing.

I want know how to connect it to the PC


You can connect it to your PC with a USB cable, and you'll need to install Brother's printer driver to run it. You can download the driver at http://solutions.brother.com According to the manual it will run on operating systems up through XP. There's is no data on Vista or Windows 7, but an email to Brother customer service should answer that question. Need the manual? You can download/print it at:

Brother Intellifax-2820, will not print incoming faxes. It rings, says it's receiving data and thats it. Yes I have paper in tray. Sends and copies fine.


You need to make sure that your machine is set to "FAX" mode,not"PHONE"mode and that it is in "AUTO"receive, not "MANUAL"receive mode.

Receving large unwanted faxes


Please rate my solution. Hope this resolves the problem.

According to the manual one of the things that can cause this is if the data cable (USB) was disconnected from the printer while the job is printing. Press the Cancel button on the printer, that should clear the memory. Also make sure you don't have print jobs in the queue if the printer is connected to a pc.

Manual can be downloaded at:

How to install new brother printer 2820


How to install it as what? A fax machine? Or a printer/scanner?

To install as a FAX, just plug a phone line cord into the port that says "Line", plug the power cord in and you're done.

As a printer, go to Brothers web site and download the software for your machine. Install the software, plug a USB cable into the machine and the computer and follow the on screen instructions. It's really that simple.
Please try to be more verbose with your questions.
