Re: scanning

You can purchase a device to turn your MFC into a wireless device. There are devices that can connect to the parallel port or USB port or the network port. The device itself then has an antenna that sends the signal onto the wireless network. I use a Linksys Wireless-G Access Point that attaches to my 8840DN network port. I can then set the MFC anywhere in the house.

How do i scan? using a brother MFC 685-cw..can't seem to use the scanner.. anyone help?

I have a Brother MFC 7840W and have struggled with the wireless features. Not sure how you have this configured but if wireless suggest you find a way to connect via LAN or USB...I cannot make mine work via wireless but hardwired works fine. To fix, I had to 'reset' the MFC (functions on the MFC itself) and then reinstall the software selecting USB as the connection method. Sounds crazy but once I did it worked.

I have a wireless connection to print but i can

Not all multi-function devices incorporate the ability to scan via a network connection. Since you didn't provide a printer model, I can't look it up to answer this fully. The ability to scan via a network connection is a function of the software that is provided with the printer. Check the documentation to be sure that the printer does indeed support network scanning and then go to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest application (driver) package to eliminate the possibility of a software issure. The software should install a device in your scanners and cameras (Windows XP) that can then be used as a scanner source for applications within your computer.

Brother MFC-7840W Printerwill only give me Scan To FTP option now

i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!

You should change the Baud rate to 9600 on the machine. This should correct your issue.

Also call vonage and they have some settings they can modify to improve performance.

Good luck!

I cant scan

You have to connect the mfc directly to a USB port of your computer. DO NOT use a hub.

The mfc uses the XP buil-in scan driver.

Did you install the whole mfl-pro suite? Use paperport to do scanning from your pc.
