Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, My family recently purchased a Brother MFC-210 and brought it home thinking you could hook it up with a USB cord. To our surprisement, no USB slot was on the printer and could only be hooked up with a phone cord. We tried to print numerous times and installed the CD that came with it, but the only prints we got when we tried to print were test ones. Please help!

You need to use a category 5 Ethernet cable, not a standard phone cord. A Cat5 cable has 8 wires, where a phone cord only has 4. Surprising that you got anything to print. Look at the connector to verify that it has 8 connecting pins. It is also wider than a phone connector plug. You need to plug the printer into a Ethernet Hub or Switch which in turn connects to your ethernet (network) card or port on the computer. It will most likely not work if you plug it directly into your computer.

Where do I hook up from the 210 to my computer?


They usually come with a USB cable. Connect the square end into the printer, and the flat end into one of the many ports on your computer.

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7


Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.
