If having trouble go to support for help , make sure your connections are installed correctly where you brought the wireless. You still have a guarantee I just brought a wireless printer and changed mine to wire and plug into my computer. The device is about $60.00 dollars plug and play window will do the rest for you. Then they can troubleshoot your problem with your printer and save a lot of time.

May your printer doesn't fit to your operating system because Windows Vista is one of the complicated OS and hard to find installer or software to fit it in. Try to Replace your operating system that same as your brother have. maybe it can fix your problem!

Hi have a nice day.
I think tranfering your job to desktop first, and then sending to printer, is a solution for now.

I know that the Brother MFC-7840W came with a program called PaperPort, which will allow you to scan 1 or more documents into a PDF file. Perhaps your scanner supplied the same program.

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.

You should extract the file to the directory you want and run it. You should just extract it to the desktop temporally so you can find it easily.
