Clydemason -- I would like to set up my MFC 240 C wirelessly just for printing. What print server did you use and have you been able to connect more than one computer to the printer this way? How is it working for you?

I downloaded printer driver for brother mfc240c, but even after install, I get a message that says the driver isn't installed.


Open the printer and scanners folder an delete all the devices (Brother Printer, Brother Fax, Brother PC-Fax if installed). Point to device an right click the mouse button.
Restart the computer.
Download the software from Brother Solutions Center. Download the whole suite not just the drivers. Make sure you select the software that is compatible with your version of the OS :Windows 7 32 bits, Windows 7 64 bits, Windows 8 32 bits, etc.
Install the software. If you are going to use a USB cable to connect the MFC to the computer, install a local USB printer. If you are going to use Ethernet network cable, install a wired network printer, and if wireless connection then install a wireless printer.
If you have problems finding or attributing an IP address to your printer (for Non-USB connections) there is Brother program that helps you attribute an IP address. You will find it on the same page as the software suite on Brother's site.

I want to use my brother printer with my laptop. Can I just unplug the cable from the desktop and plug it into the router? Will it just "show up" on my laptop under printers? Do I have to...


Yes, you can do that. But you will have to install the software on your laptop to be able to connect it wirelessly. You will need to download drivers. If you need help with that, let me know and I will lead you through it.

Can my brothers mfc 240c printer be used to print from more than 1 computer in my house wirelessly? how do I set this up?


The MFC-240C does not have a wireless interface, so you can't connect wirelessly directly to it. What you would have to do is set up a print server, which can be a standalone device or can be one of your computers, and then the other computers would print through that one connected computer.

Is the brother mfc240c connectable from my laptop


Yes, depending on the operating system you're using, you should be able to connect the MFC-240C to your laptop. Just go to the Brother website and download the drivers for your operating system (you'll also need a USB cable):

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.

Connection to computer


you can only connect it by usb cable either to pc or to laptop.

If you do like to run both computers you are better up with a networking printer like the mfc 440cn or 460cn.
