Do stop firewall and virus detecting software before installing the software!

If you run vista, you do will have probs due to no support for older mfc!

Have a look at the brother homepage of your country, too. you will find faq hints that might will help you.

How to install LAN Brother MFC-5840CN on Windows 7 when original CD only has XP driver. Windows Update list specifies MFC-5840CN USB, but machine has option for LAN - is the driver the right one?


You cannot use the full driver and software package now. BUT:
Printing is possible, scanning and FAX is not possible at the moment. You download the Vista driver (x32 or x64) from the official Brother site and install it with the Printer Wizard in Windows 7.

Istall driver software after download has finished with printer USB unplegged, that is important, the software will tell you when to connect the printer.

Installation problems


How do you connect the mfc to your computer/laptop? In case you use usb make sure that the cable isnt longer than 3m and it is connected directly to your comp/lap usb. Do NOT connect to a hub. This causes a prob with the scanner.
In case you have it installed within a network (RJ45) there is a guide which can be download from brother homepage of your country. It explains the settings and installing for the scanner and printer.
