Hello you can download the software here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc9840cdw_all

Please select your windows system 32 or 64 bit.
And download the software.
Uninstall all the old software before you install the new.

Download also a manual:

This file is in the pdf format so you need adobe reader.

To connect it wireless you need a extra module on the pc to communicate with the printer it`s probably a bluetooth module.

I think it wil be easyer to connect it with the lan cable or usb.
If you have a router connect the lan cable to one of the 4 ports on it.
Or buy a switch to connect betveen the pc and the printer.

Good luck

Ignore the instructions that come with the printer, choose Open System, then choose WEP, enter, and it hooks up. Thanks to the above posters for this solution.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-8460N network printing, local scanning

Yes this is possible. Depending on the type of installation that has been done on the computer, you can even scan documents to your computer as a network scanner.

You can check and see if all the features have been installed on your computer. Click on start, all programs, and look for the folder called brother. If you can find brother you can look for the sub category for Conrtrol Center. From Control Center you can scan by clicking on one of the icons. Like file or image.

If none of this is installed, get your installation disk and install the software, you can do a network installation or a Local (USB) installation.

If you decide to do a Local installtion remember to only plug in the USB cable when promted to.

If you decide to do a network installation, the machine should already be installed on the network, which I assume it is since its being used as a network Printer.

Please let me know if any of this info was usefull, and if you require more info about this.

Wipe the paper feed rollers with a clean rag wetted with plain water. You can also replace the feed rollers, search for "paper feeding kit" for this printer. Should be $20 to $30.
