My MFC 8500 brother fax machine reports poor line condition when i try to use it with Magic Jack. Is there a solution?


You might try a better/faster internet connection or a faster computer to run it off of. VOIP phones have troubles handling faxes for this very reason.

WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE?


Yes, just use Windows 7 Update function to install proper drivers automatically. The drivers provided by Brother on CD do not work, though.

Brother's MFC-3240C All-In-One


I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.

Brother MFC240C in stallation


The solution for this one's an easy fix. All you have to do is go to brother, click on Product Support, select your country or the nearest one to you, then where it says please enter your model name type in mfc-240c and hit enter. Click where it says MFC-240C and then go to downloads, select drivers, then your operating system, and then your language, and finally, click search. It will bring you to the page with teh drivers for your printer. In the downloads area, you can also download the manuals, the software for your printer, etc.. It's all quite well laid out. Let me know if you run into any problems.

Do you run XP or Vista or Mac? And do you run a mfc440 or a dcp 135?

Anyway, in case you run Vista there are some new drivers avaiable:
