Hl 5250dn internet connection problem

I am on a network connected through a router, and I have just installed my brother 5250dn, however whenever I print from it, the DSL light on my modem goes off, and I can't access the internet until I disconnect the printer. Does anyone know why this is happening or how I can resolve it?

also I have installed the latest printer drivers from the brother website but the problem is still persisting, my printer is connected to a ups along with my router, I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. But the first UPS i connected the printer to broke down after I tried printing.

1- I have been warned by various Tech support persons that a laser printer should not be connected to a UPS. Too much current drain, and laser's cannot handle the stepped wave form that most UPS units intended for home office use produce. Printer damage I was told was possible.

2- I have planned to Network this same printer on my newly bought Linksys wireless router but had plenty of issues to resolve to to ensure a stable network using shared resources between my laptop and desktop computer-- other than shring an Internet cable modem connection.

If this is a network printer that is not attached to a printer server [computer]
you have to use the "local printer" option according to the add printer wizard.

If this printer is connected to another computer that is on the network, have you established at least two way file sharing thru My Network Places? I think you likewise have to give specific permission on that computer to assign that printer as a shared resource.

There is help on this topic under F1 [Help]
"connect to another printer that is attached to another computer. "

My brother hl 5250dn says its offline. How do I get it back online? I am using windows 8.1


Since you mention internet issues that your carrier fixed, I'd look at your local router. The router provides IP numbers to all the devices in your home network and if its been replaced or even reset, its likely offering up a new (and different) ip number to your printer. Try creating another printer object on your windows computer and see if windows can find the Brother connection that way. Windows won't scan for a changed IP number on a printer its already configured. If that fails, you can use the router to show you all the devices it sees on your home network and check to be certain the printer is present.

I had this same problem with a HP Deskjet C4480 inkjet printer. This was happening when I would load one A10 (9x4) envelope at a time.

The problem was solved when I loaded many envelopes at a time. Don't know if this will help but what do you have to loose?

How to assign ip to the printer


Using the LPT port is not the same as using the network port. The LPT port does not utulise an IP address.
Plug in a network cable to network port and the printer wil usually aquire an ip address via DHCP.
I repeat the LPT port is not a network port and cant initialise an ip address
