How conect the brother to my loptop dell

The printer has a USB port. Download and install the software from the Brother site if needed: Select your OS. Get a USB cable with male A and male B ends, less than 6' long is recommended; the square end connects to the printer and the rectangular end goes to the computer. Connect this when the installation prompts you to do so or after rebooting the computer after the software installation. The USB port is on the side of the printer near where the handset cord connects to the unit.

I hope this helps.

(USB hubs and print servers are not recommended for use with all-in-ones. The scanner functions may not work if you have a bad cable and will not work with most print servers.)

Scanning images onto mac

The scanner driver is separate from the printer driver. This link will take you to the downloads page of, where you select the machine family, then the specific model. Click the downloads link at the bottom, then, and you'll get to a page to select what you want and for what OS. Brother lists Mac os's from 9.x to 10.6.
Even if you have a driver on CD, the website usually has a newer version.

Scanner - MFC 7420

Get the manual, and you may need the install disk too. Look carefully at the usb port on the copier so you get the correct usb cord.

I can't get the printer to share with my laptop

MFc 7420 is not the network printer, the printer either need to set up from one PC then share to another PC ONLY.
Or if you have server then you can share this printer, otherwise impossible.
