Are you positive it is a HL 2040? The 2040 only has parallel and usb ports. The HL 2070 has the network port.

Anyway, if it is already being printed to on the network from other printers go to one of the other PC's and look under the printer properties tab, go to the ports tab and see which IP address has a checkmark in the box......that is the IP address you will need...

If it isn't already setup on another PC then you will need the setup CD that has the BRAdmin Professional Software.

What is the IP address for the HL-2040 Brother Laser Printer


Factory default setting for the printer is DHCP (automatically get IP from your router).
If you have it connected you can either use the Brother software to locate it on your network (and set a static IP if you wish), or if you just need the IP, log into your router and view the connected devices.

I fixed the drum and error light but i still can't print


http://mycomputerbytes.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/reset-brother-hl-2170w-network-settings/
If printing via network and you have not set a static (meaning it doesn't change) ip setting for your printer, then your ip address may have changed. IF this is the case, http://mikebeach.org/2011/03/02/assigning-the-brother-hl-2170w-a-static-ip-address/
Also, have you updated your printer driver? Be sure to go to control panel, device manager, printer, and then uninstall before installing new driver. Also, uninstall/remove the printer.

Hope this helps.

How to connect hp pavilion to brother mfc9560cdw without router


This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router.
To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the Brother printer driver normally.
Then configure the Brother printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Brother
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

How do i network my brother hl 2040 on windows 7 I can find the printer on the network but I can not connect I think its a driver problem but I have the drives installed on both computer and laptop that I...


Here is a link to the driver download page for your printer.
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all

Go there, download the latest drivers for your operating system(s), and install the drivers.

Can you browse to the printers configuration page by entering it's IP address into a web browser? This will tell us if the printer is online or not.

IP address


Hello,

If you lose the IP address you can reset the network card.

Since the machine no longer has an IP address, you MUST be connected with a network cable.

1. Turn the power off
2. Press and hold the "go" button (the blue one on the front)
3. While holding the Go button, turn the power back on.
4. Keep holding the Go button until all 4 lights are on.
5. Release the "Go" button and press it 7 times quickly.

This will reset the network card and you should get a proper wired LAN IP address.

Thanks,

Pat

Brother HL-4040CN successfully installed but shows offline


I assume it's turned on and connected to the router.
Sometimes with DHCP, the IP address on the printer will change. I end up going into the router table to see what IP addresses are assigned where. Invariably I'll find my network printer has changed. Find the printer and write it down.

In Windows, Go into Printers> choose the Brother and right click to check Properties. Look for Ports and change the IP address as needed. It will come back online.

Ip address for brother 2040


Up to 20 pages per minute
• HQ1200 resolution (up to 2400x600dpi)
• HL-2040: 8MB memory standard
HL-2070N: 16MB memory standard
• 250-sheet input capacity
• USB 2.0 and Parallel interfaces1
• Built-in Ethernet Network Interface1 (HL-2070N)
The 2070 has networking not the 2040, according to the borchure, you would not be able to network this one, only usb and parrallel port. You could do it if you wanted to use a computer as your network printer server. In that case just use your router to select an ip address for that machine and either run it in DMZ if you have a linksys . If you just enable shared printer it should work on all your machines on the network. That's how I did it prior to a 4in1 wireless.
