My-oh-my...! I searched everywhere on the Brother Page to find thelocation of the USB port for you model, but there is NOTHING! Neitherin the Manual nor Setup Guide. Unbelievable!

I looked up the 1860-C and that Setup Guide at least has apicture.Look at page 11 (chapter 14) of the Setup Guide (you can get ithere).
It shows the connection port for USB. Maybe that gives you a hint.

If you want to search the outside of your fax machine, look for a USB symbol like this:

The port itself might be covered by a small plate and not visible without prying that plate (carefully) off.

Note: Brother advises not to use a USB cable longer than 6 feet.

Hope this gets you a little further!

It;s pretty well hidden on the 1840C. If you open the top cover (to expose the cartridges) and look to the left of the black cartridge you'll see the usb port. There's a route for the usb cable to run to the back of the printer down the right side.

My machine will not copy from my computer,it copied from it yesterday.

lets start simply... turn off your fax and turn it on...
next if its connected via usb... then plug out the usb and plug it back in... if its connected via network and ethernet... verify that the network is up... and that the ip address on your fax is the same as the one on your fax driver... ping your fax machine...if it is unable to get your ping... then you either have a network problem... which means someone else might have the same ip as your machine or your machine might have failed... but before you draw any such conclusion... reinstall the driver and see if that fixes it...

Can't receive faxes through ComSwitch7500 connected to fax. Have Brother 2820 connected from external port on fax to fax port on ComSwitch7500. Have also tried fax machine's line in port to fax port on...

You should be refering to the PC Fax utility. De-install all the drivers from your PC and re-install the drivers with the CD provided. Run the CD without connecting the USB cable, only connect the USB cable when prompted.

Network problem with Aficio 1515f

Sounds like you have a wireless router, but are (for some reason) plugging your laptop into it, and if it's not wireless, you should return it and get a wireless one for about the same money, that will let you use your laptop from anywhere, and the setup is often easier, as it can usually all be done via the Installation CD. You can also still plug the Aficio 1515 into the router and print wirelessly to it from your laptop, once you have it configured.
Next, the Aficio 1515 printer feature included a standard usb port, so I find this a little strange.
You can download the manuals here:

The 'network settings' guide will be most helpful. The two things you primarily need to be concerned with are the "IP address", and "subnet mask". Do not use "Auto", but rather set them manually, and then configure the printer driver
If you don't have a basic understanding of IP addresses, and network printing, then you'll really need some help to complete the setup

the 560 / 560R does not work as a printer. The USB port is there, but it is not capable to run as a printer. The 565 / 565R is the model that can operate as a printer. They used the same case for both models.. the USB port on the 560 / 560R does not connect to anything
