How can i set up my brother mfc 490cw to print ?


Hi

You do not saty which operating system you are using.

You need to connect a USB cable between the printer and the computer, power the printer on and then install the drivers and Brother printer applications from the CD that came with the printer.

If you do not have the CD, select the apprpropriate operating system Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OSX, Linux) and download and install the drivers and applications from here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/model_top/colormfc/mfc490cw_all.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc490cw_all

Once you have installed the software, restart the printer. If this is the first time you are using the printer, you will need to follow the instructions in the manual to install black and colour ink cartridges in the printer, then test the printer.

It may be that you would also benefit from downloading the instruction manual for this printer.

Save Brother download page in your Browser's Favourites Folder, so you can download updates and security patches for this printer from Brother in future.

I hope this helps.

I have the MFC-490CW, I am trying to install it to be wireless. But I can't figure out some of the items. How do I find the WEP key?


My brother MFC490-CW is connected wirelessly to the router. It printed OK wirelessly yesterday when I set it up but today it will not print. The printer has a strong wireless connection to the router. My PC also has a strong connection to the router. But the printer seems to have lost the connection to my PC. How to I re-establish the wireless connection from the printer to my PC?

Printer & network not seeing each other


Buy a HP and you will not have this problem. Yes Brother is aware of the issue and may have a fix on their website but typically it is a driver conflict with Apple when using different printing devices other than HP.

Brother MFC-490CW Won't Print


If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.

My printer is connected to the internet, but status is 'offline'


Hey Bud. I had the exact same issue with mine. I called around and no one had an educated answer. I remembered that my Uncle Lester works for the IP department for the city of Beaumont. I called his house and of course he was at work. Just for grins I asked his 8 year old daughter how to fix it. She simply said, "Just unplug the router and plug it back in.... What a ********...." Then she hung up... Neddless to say this seems to work for everything else too.... Good luck.
