SOURCE: Correct USB cable

Any good USB cable will work. There is a note, however in the user guide that it should not be longer than 6 feet. (1.85M)

For reference: HL-5240 User Guide

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Help connecting brother fax machine

1. Connect the handset.
Connect the curled handset cord to the bottom of the handset and to the left side of the machine.
2. Connect the power cord.
3. Connect the telephone line.
Connect one end of the telephone line cord to the jack labeled LINE on the left side of the machine. Connect the other end to a modular wall jack.
 This machine must be grounded using a three-prong plug.
 Since the machine is grounded through the power outlet, you can protect yourself from potentially hazardous electrical conditions on the telephone line by keeping the power to your machine on when you connect it to a telephone line. When you want to move your machine, protect yourself by disconnecting the telephone line first, and then the power cord.
 Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you use a quality surge protection device on the AC power line as well as on the telephone line, or unplug the lines during a lightning storm.

Want to use printer to scan document to my computer, printer says to check connection when scan button is pressed. printer is directly connected to computer via USB. what do I do now

The Check Cable message generally indicates that there is a communication or connection loss between the computer and the Brother Machine. To resolve this issue perform the following steps:

a) For USB cable users, a type A/B 1.1 or 2.0 USB cable is recommended.
b) For parallel cable users a Shielded IEEE 1284 compliant cable is recommended.
c) Other cable configurations may work, however connection loss is common. For troubleshooting purposes, do not connect your interface cable through any hubs, splitters, docking stations, or other pass-through devices.
2. Check the cable connection to the brother machine. Remove the cablefrom both the computer and the Brother machine. Leave them unplugged for a few seconds, and then reseat the cable on both ends to ensure a secure connection. For USB users, ensure the USB cable is plugged into the Brother machine's USB Port, not the LAN port if applicable.

I got a new computer EMachine. I wanted to hook up my Brother MFC 420 using my CD, but no luck. Maybe I have it hooked up wrong. My last computer had a telephone line hook-up. but new one doesn't. I...

Hello s_fields75. I just read your problem and was wondering if you checked your cable connections. You stated that you may have hooked it up wrong. I would definitely make sure your cable connections, USB, etc., are correct. The printer is an all-in-one and should just automatically find the connection through your modem for the fax feature. If not, you might need to get a splicer for your phone line (you can pick one up at radio shack for less than $10). Unhook your phone line from the wall jack. Plug in the splicer into the wall jack, then plug the phone cable into one jack and your fax phone cable into the other. That should do the trick. If not, you may need to download an updated driver from emachines or brothers' websites. Hope that helps!

Connect mfc 7340 to pc without phone line

Yes you will need to install the drivers and connect with a USB cable. The CD that came with the machine. Remember to connect the cable only when the installation says to.

The only thing that will require phone lines is for the fax. You need to connect the phone lline in the jack called line on the machine and other end should go straight to the wall jack.

Setting up my mfc-440cn brother

Im guessing the "Brother" is a printer....the Printer should connect using a usb port, Unless its an ethernet port for the printer then you will need a router to connect both printer and computer. Are you using a High Speed connection or a dial up connection?
