It isn't a network printer since it only has a USB interface (no LAN port)

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:

I have my mfc-240c already loaded as default printer on my pc, and am now trying to load the driver onto my macbook pro. I no longer have the manual. It is asking me for the node name and I have input...


You can find updated drivers and the manuals for your printer here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc240c_all

I suggest you remove the current drive , download and install a new driver for your Macbook Pro to see if this makes a difference.

If necessary the website has an extrensive Troubleshooting section that may be of assistance.

I cant print any documents my brother MFC-255CW says offline and i cant get it to work


I had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution anywhere. My laptop said the wifi Brother MFC-255CW printer was offline, when the printer was definitely online and connected.
In the end I simply went into Control Panel / Printers, selected the Brother printer, and deleted it off the network. Then I chose "Add a Printer" from the network, and reselected the only printer on my home network - which was the Brother MFC-255CW that I had just deleted. The computer reinstalled the driver, and everything was fine again - haven't had a problem since.

Connection to computer


you can only connect it by usb cable either to pc or to laptop.

If you do like to run both computers you are better up with a networking printer like the mfc 440cn or 460cn.
