Brother is totally fucked up under Leopard, found so far no chance to fix it.  Brother's own printer drivers are 10.4 only -- lame

SOURCE: I want to find the MAC address on a Brother

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.

My Brother MFC-260C will not print black even thought the cartridge is full.

This may have a problem with you printer cartridge try to clean it in your computer by using the printer maintenance which is including in the printer software where you've stalled in your computer.
To check and see if your printer has this option, click on "Start" then "Printers and Faxes." Right click on the icon for your printer. Scroll down to "Printing Preferences." Look for a tab called "Maintenance" or similar wording. Next, click on "Head Cleaning" or similar wording. Your printer will make some noises as the print cartridges are being cleaned. Run a "test page" after the procedure is complete. Repeat steps if necessary.
Hope this steps helps you.

I want to be able to print on a Epson FX 890 printer installed on a windows computer through network from my mac osx computer

If your printer is attached on the network ..follow these ..for to add it as default printer..
(you may install its driver first ..just in case..cause on the network it may have the windows drivers..)
If it is attached on the computer alone ..but the computer connected to the network may try to connect to the printer and if it do not find it will have to select to share the printer in that other computer ..
Another simple way to use it ..its just to send the job to the other computer and print it from there ..You can even use a team viewer to do that ..It is a free (for personal use only ) ..and make a connection to that computer which will allow you to transfer the file easy and fast ..and have control to that computers desktop ..

It really prints so slow

Try setting the printing properties to fast draft or draft. It provides a average quality document faster using less ink.
To do this, go to Start->Control Panel and then Printers. Right click on your printer and choose printing preferences. Find the setting for the quality and select Draft or Fast Draft if it is available.
Please note that this printer has a rate of 5.36 pages per minute, so even with the draft you will not see much difference.

Just replaced Netgear WebSafe router with Linksys WRT400N. Now, can't "see" printer in network nor can access it to change settings (or print). Have tried with ethernet cable straight to router and through...

Reset printer to factory settings according to manual. Plugged in ethernet cable directly to router. Ran BRAdmin which recognized printer and saw that IP address had been automatically set within new router range. Changed setting to STATIC. Deleted old printer definition from printer list and added updated definition using Printer Setup Utility. Printed test page from BRAdmin. Also printed file from Documents folder wirelessly. Changed printer settings in another laptop & was able to print wirelessly from there as well.

Setting HP OfficeJet 4315 print preferences on a MAC OS X

Whenever you send a file to print from a program a small window shows up. If it shows only
Printer: Drop down menu ARROW Presets: Drop down menu Some buttons at the bottom
then click on the ARROW pointing down for more options. That will show more info, including a drop down menu that will allow you to change page settings, printing settings, etc. For example, if you want to change the printing quality, select "Paper Type/Quality" from that drop down menu and new options will show up allowing you to change the settings of the printer.
