Open Question

Brother MFC 5480cn and SBS 2003

I have been able to use SBS 2003 as a print server for my Brother 5480cn printer but the device manager still shows the yellow question marks. It is a multifunction printer and when connected to my SBS server I have no scanning ability either without plugging the usb cable into another computer on the network. I used the drivers for Windows 2003 server from brother.com but like I said it only gives me printing. How can I get the multifunction running through my SBS 03 server like I had it running through my vista ultimate computer?

SOURCE: Brother MCF-6490CW will not intall drivers with Windows 7 Ultimat

The drivers should come inboxed with windows 7 on the official final versions. Later on the drivers also will be released on brother's homepage(s), but they usually take some time before uploading drivers to the homepage when new OS' are released. Try using the Add Printer Wizard and see if you're able to find the MFC-6490CW in the list of printers available.

I had the SAME problem. I have 3 pc laptops and 1 Mac. The Mac could still print, but the pc's were hosed. I called BrotherUSA and this fixed the problem!

Go to your printer and after making sure it's connected to the network with the Ethernet cable, go to Menu > Print Reports > Network Config. This will print a page that shows your printer's IP address. We need to config that address in your Printer, Fax and Scanner settings in Control Panel.

Go to Control Panel > Printers & Faxes. Right click on your printer > Properties > Ports tab. Click Add Port and select Standard TCP/IP Port. Click New Port and click Next on the wizard. Enter the IP address of your printer in the first field (the second one will auto-fill). Click Next and Finish. Printer's done!

Right click on your PC-FAX in Printers & Faxes and Properties. Click on the ports tab and just check the box that you just created for Standard TCP/IP Port. Click OK. Fax is done!

Go back to Control Panel and select Scanners & Cameras. Right click on your printer/scanner > Properties > Network Setting tab. Select the Specify your machine by address radio button and, if it's not already in there, enter the IP address of your printer. Click OK. Scanner's done!

This will work as long as your router is running. You may need to repeat this process after a power outage or if you need to reboot your wireless router. Not too bad, though! I just wish everything was as easy as a Mac!!!

I have a printer problem, it is a Brother MFC-465CN. the lcd display screen is showing "Unable to Int. 48" can ou help please


This indicates a problem with the print head.

Clean the print head when needed by doing one of the following:

  • Press the Ink or Ink Management key and then select Cleaning. Or

  • Press the Menu key and then select Ink Management, Cleaning.

These cleaning processes do consume an amount of ink.

Can my brothers mfc 240c printer be used to print from more than 1 computer in my house wirelessly? how do I set this up?


The MFC-240C does not have a wireless interface, so you can't connect wirelessly directly to it. What you would have to do is set up a print server, which can be a standalone device or can be one of your computers, and then the other computers would print through that one connected computer.

Does anyone know where to get drivers for a Brother MFC 7340 for windows server 2003? I have found windows server 2000, xp, vista, and windows 7 drivers but not server 2003.


If there is no driver ... that means the OS does not support the hardware. Your options are ... Microsoft, Brother, third party or learn how to program and write one. You can appeal to MS and Brother ... my guess is they will not likely write a new driver for a 7 year old OS.

Does the MFC 7340 have a ethernet connection? You might be able to print to it as a network device through a 'qualifying' computer ... Copy the document from the computer running Server 2003 to a XP or other computer and print from there ... just an idea.

Networking


It isn't a network printer since it only has a USB interface (no LAN port)
http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/MFC/ModelBrochures/Brochure_MFC240C.pdf

but you may purchase a print server if you want to share the printing function on your network (only the printing function can be shared). But some multifunction printers do not work with print servers due to driver issues. There are some users on the net who were able to make this work with an IOGEAR multifunction print server.

There is one Brother multifunction network printer that you may want to check:
