That is because the telephone line connection you are trying to use is for faxing, not to connect it to the PC.

You need to use the USB connection / wire.

SOURCE: looking for a printer cable for a Brother model

What CPU do you have? Last time I looked, mine has a standard USB A port and a USB A/B cable, available anywhere, http://www.google.com/search?q=usb+a-b+cable&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe=&rlz=1I7ADFA_en will work.

If your printer and computer are Bluetooth capable then yes it can be done that way. The other way is through your wireless network/router. If you run a cable from you wireless router to your printer then you can use it wirelessly.

I want to use my brother printer with my laptop. Can I just unplug the cable from the desktop and plug it into the router? Will it just "show up" on my laptop under printers? Do I have to...


Yes, you can do that. But you will have to install the software on your laptop to be able to connect it wirelessly. You will need to download drivers. If you need help with that, let me know and I will lead you through it.

Not sure if your answer is correct, As I said Windows update thought it was downloading the correct driver and it didn't work correctly. I don;t want to say your link isn't helpfull, But I followed another suggestion and installed the Windows Vista Suite for the Brother MFC-5840CN all in one.and it not only fixed the problem it also installed all the multifunction drivers and software.So I am good for now. Thank you for responding to my delema. In case someone else needs it, Here it is.

Wireless connection!


Yes. Keep it plugged in to your desktop.
Do you have your home network configured? That has to be done first, between your desktop and laptop, etc., then under the printer's properties select "sharing", and share the printer from your Desktop.
Then to access the printer on your laptop, go to "add printers" Select "network printer", then select "browse", then browse your network for the "shared printer", and select it.
You will only be able to print through it if your PC is turned on.

Brother MFC 7420N network connection failed


open the back door.
Pull down the black rear chute the exposes the fuser (opens just like the door)
In the middle you will see a black piece of plastic that is a paper sensor. In the middle of the rod that that piece is on there is a flag that sticks down through a slot. This piece is off and out of position, snap it back in so the flag is through the slot and the rod and pieces rotate freely.

That will FIXYA!
