All these three methods involve some specific code in the printer drivers both in Print server and clients.

Not all printers will have drivers that will support all 3 ways of using the printer. It appears that not all printer drivers, written for Windows Vista. If you can't get your network printer, please try the following steps to bypass the LPT redirection. 1. Install the Vista printer driver on your Windows Vista computer.
2. During installation, you'll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
3. After installation completes, open the Printers wizard from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right click on the entry for the new printer, and choose Properties.
5. Go to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the port name, enter the network path and share name of your printer ("\\TheirComputer\TheirPrinter1").
8. Click OK, and verify that the new port is selected.
9. Click OK to close the printer properties.

I have a brother all in one mfc 8460n and I just got a new apple laptop computer and installed windows 7 on it and i need to get my printer to work from my laptop. it works from the desktop computer but...


Wow, you've got two issues here. First of all is the Brother compatible with Apple and is it compatible with Windows 7?? Sounds like you need to go to brother's website and see if there are drivers for Apple and for Windows 7.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "BrotherSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

My brother mfc6490cw says dr mode what is this


DR stands for distigntive ring.

Before you are able to change the receive mode, you will need to turn off DR.

To turn off DR press MENU, then the down arrow until FAX and press OK. Then with down arrow choose MISC and press OK. Then with down arrow chose DISTINGTIVE and OK, then down arrow until OFF and press OK.

I want to install my brother MFC-5840CN onto a new laptop that is running windows 7. It will not install from the disc and says to visit the brother solution centre that does not give me any help. How can...


http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/gb/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=eu&c=gb〈=en∏=mfc5840cn_all
Click driver, then the windows that is closest to windows 7 (Vista) 32 or 64 bit, depending on what windows7 you have installed. Vista is very close to Win7 so a vista driver may well work.
So select Driver, then Windows Vista in the box below (or Windows Vista x64 Edition) depending on your current bit, then select English and then search.
On the next page click to download the Full Driver & Software Package.
This may well help you, and the drivers here will be much newer then whats on your disc, as will be the utilities.
Hope this helps you.

How to install LAN Brother MFC-5840CN on Windows 7 when original CD only has XP driver. Windows Update list specifies MFC-5840CN USB, but machine has option for LAN - is the driver the right one?


You cannot use the full driver and software package now. BUT:
Printing is possible, scanning and FAX is not possible at the moment. You download the Vista driver (x32 or x64) from the official Brother site and install it with the Printer Wizard in Windows 7.

My brother MFC490CW is not playing nice with windows 7


Visit the Brother website
http://www.brother-usa.com/
See if you can find an updated driver for your 64 bit Operating system . Download it and save it to your desktop. Remove the old driver then install the updated one this should fix the problem. But if you can't find an updated driver, contact Brother.
