Error message "check connection" yet the printer works wirelessly.

If printer driver was shared from one of the pc, only the printing function can be used. For scanning functions, all PC should be installed direct to the network/wifi printer. Disable all sharing for this printer for the group.

Spooler hangs/freezes when sending any print job to network share printer. I have tried every fix I could find online. I finally ran a sfc scan and fixed a corrupted windows file, the printer will p

I think you're on the right track with the firmware and driver updates, but be careful about your driver and version selection. For instance, I have an old usb Minolta Laser and XP wants to install the driver for the 1200W. Problem is, my unit is a 1250W. It works eventually, but my spooler hangs for a solid three minutes and network jobs always fail... Good luck sir.

How to connect to computer

The unit has a parallel port interface and is supported under Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP . The drivers are available here: . For the supported OS versions, download the drivers and then run the exe. If it extracts drivers, note the folder in which they are stored. Then launch the Add a Printer Wizard (Printers and Faxes in XP IIRC). If your computer doesn't have a parallel port, parallel to USB adapters do exist.

Neither Vista or Win7 Compatibility Center have the unit listed. The XP driver may work in Vista 32-bit with the compatibility mode on. For Win7 or Vista 64-bit, I'd suggest a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS. For the most setups, you'll need a licensed version of the Windows OS. (Virtual computer software include: Parallels, VMWare and Virtual PC.)

With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft for free, then install them in order. The printer will install normally into the XP virtual computer. However, files from the main computer will need to go onto optical media or an external drive in order to share them with the virtual computer for printing.

I hope this helps.

I have a brothers mfc8220, i am having trouble hooking it up wireless. What am i doing wrong?

The only way you can connect this wireless is if you either connect the USB cable to your router directly with a USB cable or by connecting the printer to a computer and then share it over the network.

Printer will work for only one computer

It's not the printer, it's the network. When Comcast installed cable in your office they disrupted/changed the network settings on the other computers. Go to the computer that can use the printer and right-click on it. Check Properties/Sharing. Make sure the Share This Printer box is checked. If it is, the problem lies in the network connection of the other PC's.
