Brothers printer without a computer


If this is a Brother MFC-J470DW Inkjet, then it is possible to connect it to a wireless network. If you internet device is actually a "wireless router" as well as a modem (where cable or phone line connects) then you should be able to follow the manual in setting up the newtork on the printer. You may need a phone, iPad or other device that can browse the internet, to register the printer properly and complete setup. There should be a support number you can call for free (check your setup documents). Most companys are anxious to help new cutomers and give them step by step instructions. You can also try http://www.brother.ca/en/customer_care - there are several support option there.

NOTE:
If your internet modem is not a router and only has a wired connection for direct to a PC (a cable that has what looks like big phone jack ends), you would have to add a wireless router instead of a PC. This can be a complicated job, and beyond the scope of this answer.
This printer does support Google print, Apple AirPrint and other network printing (for phones, ipads etc) so once connected, it could be very useful. Brother Canada Customer Support

I'm running Mac OS 10.6 on my portable and the MFC-7840W won't priint. I've update all the drivers but when I try to print, the bluetooth window always says, can't find printer. HELP.


Hello,

The MFC-7840W does not support bluetooth connection.
It can connect wireless if you have a wireless network or connect wireless directly to your airport on the mac.

Since it is not printing, please follow these steps.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Reboot the computer.
6. Go back to Print and Fax (step 1 & 2)
7. Click on the + icon to add a printer
8. Click on the "default" tab and add the printer.

If you do not see the printer in this list, then printer is not connected.

If you do see the printer in the list but you still can not print, you will need to remove the drivers completely and reinstall.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Go to Mac HD \ Library \ Printers
6. move the brother folder to the trash bin
7. Empty the trash bin.
NOTE: You may need to reboot the computer before you can empty the trash.
8. Once the trash is empty, reboot the computer.

Now you need to install the following drivers.
