Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Brothers network printer (MFC-6490CW). I have a laptop and a PC. The PC will print to the printer. The laptop will not(but when I turn it off and then back on the document will print from the printer).
Presuming both computers connect to the printer through the network ( the printer is not plugged directly into either ) you probably just need to remove and reinstall the Brother drivers making sure you select Network Printer. Brother drivers are usually pretty good.
Some routers stumble on the extremely long device name your Brother gives himself. You may need to access the printer through your browser and change his name to something shorter than 10 characters. Believe it or not, I've seen it help.
