Question about Brother MFC-7340 All-In-One Laser Printer

Open Question

I am using a shared Brother MFC 7340 printer connected to my network through a Linksys WPSM54G wireless print server. When I print, the pages often come out blank. To remedy, I can power cycle either the printer or the print server and the problem temporarily goes away. When connecting directly to the printer with my computer, it works fine. So the problem is related to the combination of printer and print server. Any ideas?

SOURCE: cant connect printer to wireless laptop.

have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop...
your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-7840W won't connect to gmail. DNS resolution error.

I'm pretty sure that the problem (though the machine indicating otherwise) is that gmail requires SSL, and the Scan to Email (server) doesn't support SSL. If this is the problem, you can easily check it out by trying to use some other mail, with another SMTP server, which doesn't require SSL.

Had the same thing happen. Unplugged the power on the printer and plugged it back in. No problems now.

I have a MFC-7340 brother printer and a belkin wireless router. How do I get my printer to print out from my wireless computer?


According to the Brother specifications of this printer, it only has an USB2 port to connect the printer to your computer. This printer does not have a LAN card nor a wireless card.
If you want to use this printer on your network, you need to set it up as a shared printer.
Fie details on setting up a shared printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a Brother MFC-7340. It says that it can print wirelessly, but I don't know how to make it discoverable, if that's possible. It also doesn't have an ethernet port, so I can't connect to network....


this is the support site for that printer http://www.brother-usa.com/support/default.aspx?PGID=5&R3ModelID=mfc7340 if you look at the quick start manual here http://www.brother-usa.com/support/default.aspx?PGID=5&R3ModelID=mfc7340 to have the network adapter the model number needs to have an "N" as part of the model 7340N
otherwise you will have to use USB connected to a PC - and the PC on to share on the network

Does anyone know where to get drivers for a Brother MFC 7340 for windows server 2003? I have found windows server 2000, xp, vista, and windows 7 drivers but not server 2003.


If there is no driver ... that means the OS does not support the hardware. Your options are ... Microsoft, Brother, third party or learn how to program and write one. You can appeal to MS and Brother ... my guess is they will not likely write a new driver for a 7 year old OS.

Does the MFC 7340 have a ethernet connection? You might be able to print to it as a network device through a 'qualifying' computer ... Copy the document from the computer running Server 2003 to a XP or other computer and print from there ... just an idea.

Can i connect my f4180 printer to a router and access it wirelessly


Your printer uses a USB interface and can be connected to a wireless network using a print server simular to the Linksys WPSM54G.

I have also found on the web several wireless routers that incorporate a USB print server function, that is they have a USB port that connects to your printer and allows it to be shared on the network.

Be careful not all routers with USB ports are for printers, these newer routers have USB ports for adding network shared disk storeage boxes and do not support printers.

They all incorporate a user friendly WEB based configuration program to help you do this so don't think you need a degree in computer science.

Networking


It isn't a network printer since it only has a USB interface (no LAN port)
http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/MFC/ModelBrochures/Brochure_MFC240C.pdf

but you may purchase a print server if you want to share the printing function on your network (only the printing function can be shared). But some multifunction printers do not work with print servers due to driver issues. There are some users on the net who were able to make this work with an IOGEAR multifunction print server.

There is one Brother multifunction network printer that you may want to check:

Wireless printing with AT&T U-verse and 3800 HGV-B and Linksys WPSM54G


I may not be able to completely solve the issue for all who posted, and I have not gotten the scanner part of my Brother MFC-5440CN printer/scanner/copier/fax to work through the wireless PS, but I can at least shed some light:

First off - trying to make the Linksys WPS54G work on a wireless network that has a decent level of security is NOT for the faint of heart!

Key issue is security; make sure you know what wireless security protocol your router is using (WEP-64, WEP-128, or WPA). My U-verse installation uses the exact same 2Wire router, but either it defaults to WPA security, or the tech set it up that way without asking me. WPA is preferable anyway, as it is the most secure, and I had my network set up on WPA with my ZOOM X6 when we had AT&T DSL.

The problem is that the Linksys unit is old/obsolete enough that it defaults to WEP or no security, and in fact the setup program and utilities on the CD that came with the refurb. unit I recently bought are way outdated compared to the current downloads available on their support site, and don't even offer WPA as an option.

If your U-verse router is configured for WPA, as is most likely, then you have to get your Linksys unit configured for WPA security before it can be properly "seen" on the network by your computers. This means either downloading the latest setup/driver programs from Linksys's support website and burning a fresh setup CD, or getting to the Web-interface of the unit and setting it there (I could not even get to the web-interface because of my firewall and other security). Only then can you set the unit to use WPA security with the same key/passphrase as your U-verse router and your computer(s).

I'd advise downloading the latest stuff in any case. I ended up downloading the latest firmware, upgrading it on the unit using the Bi-Admin util on the setup CD, setting up the unit using the web-interface (be patient, because sometimes the page loads can be very slow when it is reading or writing settings). I have never been able to access the web-interface from my laptop, which is probably the most secure on our network. I was only able to get things working when I accessed it from an old PC we rarely use, and it is only running Windoze (XP) Firewall for security. The print server had to be Ethernet connected to the router while doing the configuration to make it work.

I am afraid, PSUS4 is an older model of print server , which supports only ordinary printers. All in ones are not supported by PSUS4. Linksys have other print server which works with all in one printers. The model number is WPSM54G. Probably you can try that. Also, if the PSUS4 is less than one month old, you can get it replaced with the WPSM54G from the stores itself . The WPSM54G can be used as wired as well as wireless to the router. If you want to use the PSUS4, you may need an ordinary printer like Office jet or laser jet with USB 1.1 version.- Thank you
