Sharing must be enabled on the new printer for it to appear on the network. Please specify OS for details.

Lost manual, need to connect to my pc


You can find the user manula here:

Connecting most printers to a computer is fairly easy, especially this one that has a USB port. Have your computer running and your printer OFF. plug the printer into a USB port in your laptop or computer adn turn the printer ON. The computer should recognize the printer and start installing the drivers if they are not installed already.

Cant connect lexmark X3550 to laptop wirelessly..


If you are trying to connect to a network printer you need to install a network printer NOT a PC install. You would have to browse for the "Remote" printer, from the CLIENT. The printer that is on the "Master" PC will have to have the printer already installed and "shared" as well, FIRST. Then you go to the remote and install a NETWORKED printer....find it on the network, and connect, it will actually get the drivers from the "Master" PC, see. Plus BOTH PC's will have to have a name password & and be on the same "Workgroup" as well. If you want to enable documents to be exchanged to print between PC's you will have to enable "Sharing" on each, Drive, or Folders as well, if you wish.

My brother mfc 5840cn won't install on my new laptop which has windows 7 my old laptop was xp


Brother has not released a printer driver specifically for Windows 7 and this model. You can however use a basic printer driver if the Windows Update feature of your operating system is set to "automatic:"

To set Windows Update to automatic, perform the following: (if you know it already is set to automatic, you may skip these steps)

1) Click "Windows Icon" (Start button) on taskbar

2) From the "Search Programs and Files" box type "change device installation" and start search

3) Click "Change device installation settings" - the Device Installation Settings window opens

4) If it is not already selected, select "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)"

5) Click "Save changes"

Now you are ready to have Windows search for and install the generic printer driver for your model. Your computer must be connected to the internet in order to complete this installation.

Note: If you have previously connected the USB cable, disconnect it from the computer and printer for now.

1) Power on your printer

2) Now connect the USB cable to the back of the printer, then to a USB port on the back of your computer (not to a USB hub or keyboard port)

3) Windows should now automatically search for and install the latest driver for your printer.

4) The "Your devices are ready to use" message may come up on your screen upon completion. You may have to click "Close [X]" to close this window.

You should now have a basic driver installed for your model of printer.

MFC425CN will not scan through network


In my experience with printer all in ones they never scan over the network. So your best bet it to just hook the printer to a pc scan it and then you can share it on the network.

Hl 5250dn internet connection problem


1- I have been warned by various Tech support persons that a laser printer should not be connected to a UPS. Too much current drain, and laser's cannot handle the stepped wave form that most UPS units intended for home office use produce. Printer damage I was told was possible.

2- I have planned to Network this same printer on my newly bought Linksys wireless router but had plenty of issues to resolve to to ensure a stable network using shared resources between my laptop and desktop computer-- other than shring an Internet cable modem connection.

If this is a network printer that is not attached to a printer server [computer]
you have to use the "local printer" option according to the add printer wizard.

If this printer is connected to another computer that is on the network, have you established at least two way file sharing thru My Network Places? I think you likewise have to give specific permission on that computer to assign that printer as a shared resource.

There is help on this topic under F1 [Help]
"connect to another printer that is attached to another computer. "

Installing and want to print remotely


Do you have the unit connected a network? If so, choose network. If the printer is connected directly to your computer, then choose local.

One possibility for remote printing is Bluetooth. You can purchase Bluetooth USB adapters for the printer & your computer if not so equipped. They include the software to make everything work together. I think Bluetooth is a great wireless option that is under utilized by many consumers.

Good luck!
