Upgraded connecting cable for a 2003 brother HL 14 printer

I recently bought a gateway laptop computer and the cable from my brother printer will not fit any of the sockets. Is there an adaptor cable on the market so that I can continue using my printer.

HL-2270DW need install drivers, do not have CD


Brother has the drivers for most of their printers on their support site. For the HL-2270DW, go to http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2270dw_all . What OS does your computer have? Select your OS and then your language. Click on the Search button.

The Full Driver and Software Package should be the first one listed after the search. This is the version for most users. Just click on the Download & Information link. Then click Download. Look further down the page for the stand-alone drivers.

If you have another driver installed (for example, the Windows USB driver for a locally connected printer), uninstall the driver first. If it's the Brother driver, use the Brother uninstall tool. Otherwise remove the printer in the Devices and Printers Control Panel. (Click Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the printer and choose Remove.) Then remove the USB cable if connected to the computer. Install the Brother software and then connect the USB cable when prompted to do so.

Note: this download does not include any third-party software that was on the original CD.

I hope this helps.

Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

I recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.

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. "

Correct USB cable


Any good USB cable will work. There is a note, however in the user guide that it should not be longer than 6 feet. (1.85M)
