Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Nothing Printing Our company has been using a Brother 5250DN as our network printer for 6 months and it has been working perfectly.  Recently it stopped printing documents as they were sent to the printer and has to be unplugged before it will begin printing the sometimes stored documents.  Is this a cord issue, or a network issue?

    We use this model printer at an elementary/middle school over a network. Consistently have problems with documents not printing from certain computers. Any suggestion? I've downloaded and installed the current driver to the "problem" computer but it still won't connect to the printer....although it will connect to other printers in the building. Frustrating..

I want to find the MAC address on a Brother HL-5250DN mono laser printer. We run on a Windows XP Ethernet network. Is there a report page I can print straight from the Printer?

Go to Printers and Faxes.
Right click on the printer and select Properties.
Toward the bottom, click on Printing Preferences...
Click on the Support tab.
Click on Print Settings.

This should give you three pages. The third page has the network settings including Ethernet/MAC address.

Hl 5250dn internet connection problem

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. "

What do you mean by Network Driver? You simply use the standard Brother Driver and assign the port as an IP/TCP port! The Windows help can give you advice on this.
