Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
Am trying to share this printer with my new Macbook Air
HL-2040 do not have a network port, it only has a USB port. Unless you connect it to a print server.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help - I appreciate your quick response. I was eventually able to connect my Macbook Air wirelessly to my Brother HL 2040 printer."
Factory default setting for the printer is DHCP (automatically get IP from your router).
If you have it connected you can either use the Brother software to locate it on your network (and set a static IP if you wish), or if you just need the IP, log into your router and view the connected devices.

SOURCE: connect to network printer
Are you positive it is a HL 2040? The 2040 only has parallel and usb ports. The HL 2070 has the network port.
Anyway, if it is already being printed to on the network from other printers go to one of the other PC's and look under the printer properties tab, go to the ports tab and see which IP address has a checkmark in the box......that is the IP address you will need...
If it isn't already setup on another PC then you will need the setup CD that has the BRAdmin Professional Software.
