Try going to the manufacturer's website or call their number for some instructions. I think printer installation is fairly simple, should be simply plug in and use. After you plug everything in, open up a word document, hit ctrl+p to open up print menu. Try to find your printer you just installed and try to print.

Need to hook up a brother MFC-210c so it can fax

Install the software (Brother MFLPro0 relevant to the printer. If you do not have the original CD download the appropriate suite from Brother Solution Center.
When you install the software you will be asked to choose USB, or Local Network. You can always install the USB and connect the printer to the calculator through USB. Different installations for different connection types (USB, LAN)
After you configure the software, you can open the Control Center 3 software and use the fax.
To be able to fax, you need to connect a telephone cable to the port marked line. After you do try pressing the unhook button. If connection to the phone line is correct you will hear the tone.
The MFC can fax without being connect to a computer, just the phone line.

I have a brother printer and I had to buy a new computer. I need to download the program so I can use the printer with my new labtop. What do I need to do. I don't remember where the program is.

Go to the Brother website and download the correct file for your OS:

Grab the full feature driver and software to use all of the features of your all-in-one. You need to install the software before connecting the USB cable with most printers. Otherwise you will get a generic driver that only lets the printer works; the other features are lost. (Uninstall the previous driver if you got the basic driver; then unplug the USB cable between the computer and the all-in-one before installing the full software.)

To download manuals and other information, go to this URL:

I hope this helps.

go to(copy and paste into address line)

choose your OS, then english, you'll probably want the wizard install version(I don't think you want 90mb of manuals). then follow download instructions and install instructions(be aware of where it saves the download and where it installs it after you execute the file download).

Hl-2170w brother is offline

I just realized what my problem was with this same situation..."Off line". Do the following:

1. Reset the printer to factory default settings: turn off, turn on holding down blue button; after all LEDs light-up release button; All LEDs with go out then flash once.
2. Hook up the printer to an open port on your wireless HUB.
3. Install Brother software (note: go to programs/brother HL-2170 and select remove software prior to reinstalling)
4. Here is the catch: MAKE sure to select the correct encryption code. I was selecting TKIP instead of AES and two things happened...1) the computer did not pick up the printer on the network scan, and 2) the printer will remain off-line.

Once i selected AES, the computer found the printer on the network and viola' no more problems.

I then added my wireless laptop: installed drivers only, the programs scanned and found the printer on the wireless network and that was it. Now both computers are wireless!
