If the driver is already available
and you're getting the error "Windows cannot connect to the printer"
and "Operation failed with error 0x0000000d" in the detail,
I found a solution from Vista that can be
adjusted to work in Windows 7:
1. In "Devices and Printers" click "Add a Printer"
2. Select "Add a local printer"
3. Select "Create a new Port" and use "Local Port"
as the Type
4. Enter the Network Path to the Printer (ie. \\ComputerName\SharedPrinterName)
as the Port Name
5. Choose the printer from the list
6. Choose whether you want to use the driver that is currently installed or
7. Name the printer
8. Choose whether to share the printer or not
9. Choose whether to set the printer as the default printer or not
you should be able to as long as there are Vista drivers available.
make sure you first share your printer from the desktop it is attached to. then on the Visa laptop try to Add Printer choosing network printer (as opposed to local printer) and browse for the shared printer. Vista should tell you it has to install software so allow it to. Have the disk ready (does it have Vista drivers on it do you know?).
Word of caution: Vista's a little quirky with networked printers so you may have to delete the printer on the laptop and add it back if it doesn't work the first time (I had to do that even though all machines involved were Vista :/ ).
u have share your printer and add your printer in laptop u have to connect both pc in lan (local area connection ) or u can use the cross cable of lan when both pc connected then u have share your printer in xp then u have to add the printer in your vista laptop by using printer add visrd there is option on it u have to select the network printer & add it in to vista then u can print it

Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers and add a printer.
Select it as a network printer, and stop it searching (unless it finds it of course - which sounds unlikely!)
Then click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
Choose to add a printer using the IP or hostname, and click next.
Type in the IP address of the printer. This can be found by printing out the network configuration page from the printer.
The port will be filled in for you.
The printer should now be added.
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!
make sure that your printer is shared in the network. you can uninstall the previous cd driver from the add/remove programs then reinstall again.. make sure to reboot your computer after fresh install is done
