Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer
Hello Warren !
What happened is that when you replace the router, the IP Address for your printer changed as well. Your network printer connects to your computer through a number called the "IP address" wich is assigned by your router, since you replace your router, the new router assign a new Ip address for the printer, so you will need to change that IP address on the printer driver on your computer as well.
What you need to do is print a configuration report directly from the printer to figure out what the new IP.
When you have this number ( it will look something like "192.168.0.1")
you need to go to "printer and faxes" under control panel, make a right click on the MFC-465 icon, go to properties, then go to the ports tab a click on "Add Port" select Standard TCP/IP and type in the new ip address.
This should reentablish the communication between your printer and computer.

Testimonial: "worked perfectly thanks"
I had an issue with getting my MFC 465CN to print over a network, did some digging online and found that Brother has a Network Connection Repair Tool. I down loaded it and it worked.
