HL-2040 do not have a network port, it only has a USB port. Unless you connect it to a print server.

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: I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring. How can this be resolved

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

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.

Here is a link to the driver download page for your printer.
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all

Go there, download the latest drivers for your operating system(s), and install the drivers.

Can you browse to the printers configuration page by entering it's IP address into a web browser? This will tell us if the printer is online or not.

Ip address for brother 2040


Up to 20 pages per minute
• HQ1200 resolution (up to 2400x600dpi)
• HL-2040: 8MB memory standard
HL-2070N: 16MB memory standard
• 250-sheet input capacity
• USB 2.0 and Parallel interfaces1
• Built-in Ethernet Network Interface1 (HL-2070N)
The 2070 has networking not the 2040, according to the borchure, you would not be able to network this one, only usb and parrallel port. You could do it if you wanted to use a computer as your network printer server. In that case just use your router to select an ip address for that machine and either run it in DMZ if you have a linksys . If you just enable shared printer it should work on all your machines on the network. That's how I did it prior to a 4in1 wireless.
