The non wireless computer would be the problem I would say check for updates on the os and make sure you have it wired into the printer itself as going through a server to the printer may be loosing the signal


hope this helps

How do I hook this up to my new Dell Windows 7 computer


Your solution is at this link.

http://www.brother-usa.com/lp/windows7compatibility.aspx#WinUpdate


During the initial installation of Windows 7, not all available printer drivers are listed. Clicking the Windows Update button will cause the operating system to query Microsoft's servers and download the remaining available drivers. See below to learn how to update the printer list using Windows Update.

Note: For USB and Parallel users, connect the interface cable to the Brother device while your PC is connected to the internet and the operating system will automatically download and install the drivers for your device.
  1. Open the Printers folder. Click START -> Devices and Printers
  2. Click ADD A PRINTER
  3. When the ADD PRINTER WIZARD appears, click on Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer
    winupdate1.jpg
  4. Select your Brother printer from the list and click NEXT
    winupdate2.jpg
  5. When the Install Printer Driver screen appears, click Windows Update. This will take a few minutes to contact the Microsoft server and download the additional drivers.
    winupdate3.jpg
  6. Once the drivers list has been updated, please select your Brother printer from the list and click NEXT.
    winupdate4.jpg
  7. Click NEXT to accept the default name of the printer.

  8. You will be asked if you want to print a test page and set the printer as the default printer. Select YES or NO. Click FINISH.

I cant print any documents my brother MFC-255CW says offline and i cant get it to work


I had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution anywhere. My laptop said the wifi Brother MFC-255CW printer was offline, when the printer was definitely online and connected.
In the end I simply went into Control Panel / Printers, selected the Brother printer, and deleted it off the network. Then I chose "Add a Printer" from the network, and reselected the only printer on my home network - which was the Brother MFC-255CW that I had just deleted. The computer reinstalled the driver, and everything was fine again - haven't had a problem since.

How do i set it up on my wirless network?


How to set up the printer on wireless? This printer does not support wireless, but you can set up your laptop or computer wirelessly. Simply connect to your wireless network, then(IN VISTA) go to Connect to a Network and click the "add a printer button". The best thing is to buy a printer from a different company though, because with this printer, when the toner life ends, you cannot print anymore(even though there is a lot of toner left in the cartridge!)

Brother MFC-490CW Won't Print


If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.

Printing from XP to a Brother 7820N as a networked printer


We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.

To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:

1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!

How to connect brother MFC-5440CN to Bt voyager 2091


Connect machine to lan. Run the network drivers. PC should find the mfc.
In case you have to do some settings have a look into the network manual which is a pdf document on installcd.

When questions left go to brother homepage of your country and search your mfc and then the faq for networking answers.
