System preference, print & fax icon, add a printer (no need to use the software install disk), when you add the printer use the default protocol: Line Printer Daemon-LPD, address if you know your IP address type that in if not type in localhost and this will locate your printer and fill the print using field.

Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, if it fails go back in and under the print using field scroll for the driver or printer model, and selelct - Brother HL-525ODN or whatever brand you are trying to conect to and save.

I have been given a lexmark x75, with no instructions how do i install this


It would be better if you install the software/driver first in your computer. The software also shows you the instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Here are the drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on the driver compatible with your computer's operating system.
- Lexmark X75 AIO Printer driver for Mac OS X, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.1.5, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.2.1, Mac OS X 10.2.8, Mac OS X 10.3.x, and Mac OS X 10.4.x.
- Custom Driver for Microsoft Windows 2000
- Driver for Microsoft Windows XP
These are the only available drivers. That means the printer is not compatible with Mac 10.5, Mac 10.6, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
For additional information, here's the Setup Sheet (Lexmark X74, X75) and the User's Guide (Lexmark X74, X75) . Hope this helps.

Installing a later version of mac to to get the printer to work


Here is a link for the Mac OS 9 driver for the MFC-420cn:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/000600/dlf000680.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=1&os=9&flang=4&dlid=dlf000680



If you need a newer version of Mac OS , you would have to purchase it. Mac OS does not update from 9.1 to 10.X
Mac 9.1 is about 10 years old.

In May 2002, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Steve Jobs, accompanied by a coffin, held a mock funeral[5] to announce that Apple had stopped development of Mac OS 9. Mac OS 9.2.2, introduced in December 2001, was the final version of Mac OS 9, and the end of the classic Mac OS.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Macintoshes and Print Servers, the PS110 in Particular


Topic 1. What do I need to connect a Macintosh to the PS110 Print Server? A PostScript printer with a parallel interface, a Mac running MacOS 8.6, 9.x, or 10.x. (NETGEAR products are not supported for earlier versions.), and Ethernet cables to connect the Print Server to the printer, and the Print Server to your Macs, and to a router. NETGEAR's RP614 router is known to work connecting the PS110 to the Internet with Macs. Topic 2. How do I avoid losing my network configuration when restarting my Mac? When changing theMacOS configuration it is best to use Configurations (MacOS 8.x or 9.x) or Network Location (MacOS 10.x) settings instead of changing settings for each category (TCP/IP, AppleTalk, AirPort, etc.). That way you can be sure the changes will not be lost after rebooting. To Create a Configuration in MacOS 8.x or 9.x 1. Open AppleTalk (or TCP/IP) from the Apple Menu in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. 2. Select File > Configurations > New Configuration. 3 . Type a meaningful name for your new configuration (e.g., NETGEAR Wireless Router). 4 . Make your changes to the AppleTalk or TCP/IP settings. 5 . When closing AppleTalk or TCP/IP choose Save Changes. Whenever making Configuration changes for settings in MacOS 8.x or 9.x, open File > Configurations or press Command-K. Changes in Configurations are saved after rebooting. To Create a Network Location in MacOS 10.x 1. Open the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the upper left of the screen. 2. Select System Preferences. The System Preferences window displays. 3. Click Internet & Network > Network. The Network Settings window displays. 4. If the window is locked, click the Lock icon in the lower left to unlock the Network window. (You may be asked for a username and password.) 5. Click the pull down menu next to Location at the top of the Network window. 6. Select New Location. 7. Type a name for your new location and click OK. 8. Make your changes to the TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and AirPort settings. 9. Click the Lock icon in the lower left to prevent further changes. The Apply configuration changes window displays. 10. Click Apply to keep the configuration changes for the newly-created location. 11. Close the Network window. Topic 3. How do I connect a Mac to the PS110 Print Server? For MacOS 8.6 and 9.x 1. Follow the instructions in the NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-PostScript printers with Macs on the PS110 Print Server.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer to be used with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Chooser from Apple Menu. 6. Select LaserWriter 8. 7. Select the PostScript Printer to use. (This is probably the description for the PS110 Print Server and may have a name like ?PSD90335?. This name may be different on your computer.) 8. Click Setup. 9. Click Select PPD. 10. Select your printer from the Printer Descriptions list. 11. Close the Chooser. 12. Click OK. A message displays: ?You have changed your Desktop Printer.? You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet. For MacOS 10.x 1. Follow the instructions in the printed NETGEAR PS110 Installation Guide coming with the Print Server. (The CD is not needed unless you need the Reference Guide.) 2. Connect the PS110 Print Server to the PostScript printer with a parallel interface. (You cannot use non-Post Script printers with the Mac and the PS110.) 3. Connect the Print Server to the Mac. 4. Install the Printer Driver for the printer you will be using with the PS110 Print Server on your Mac. 5. Open Utilities > Print Center in the MacOS 10.2 Applications folder. The Printer List appears. 6. Click Add. The Printer Selection window appears. 7. From the top of the Printer Selection window, select AppleTalk from the first pull down menu. 8. Select Local AppleTalk Zone from the second pull down menu below. 9. Click the Print Server from the list in the window. PSD90335 ? PostScript Printer in the case of this test. 10. Click the pull down Printer Model, and select the model of printer connected to your Print Server. A list of printers displays. 11. From the scrolling list select the Model Name of the printer connected to your Print Server. 12. Click Add. 13. Printer List displays with the list of printers and print servers connected to your Mac. Select the name of the Print Server from the Printer List. 14. Click Make Default. 15. Close the Printer List. 16. Open a file and try printing it. You can now connect to the RP614 Router Gateway, and to the Internet.
