I had the same problem for a while with Brother 4070 cdw laser printer.
I had one pc and more than one laptop that are connected to a home network thru router.
I added the printer to the network and everything was working fine for more than a year.
Suddenly, the printer showed as offline from the PC.
I tried most of the solutions out there in the forums but the most succesful one was:
Download new utilities from brother printer website.
One utility in particular named as Netool resolved the issue and created a new port that is supported by the printer (Binary port)
Now my printer is working and everyone is happy

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.
Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.
Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.
Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.
Check all network connections and functions.
Be sure the network interfaces work properly.
Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.
