You need to set the IP address correctly in the Network Settings.. Make sure it corresponds with the routers IP address and is on the same Network... what I mean by this is .. the gateway should be 192.168.1.1 or similar the printer should be 192.168.1.10 or in that fashion... the 1 after the 168 is the network and the last number of 10 or what ever is the number the device is on the network.. sort of like a home address on a city street.. sounds like you need a person there that knows how to set this up properly... to connect it to the router and configure it properly... Look up a Geek!

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.

Want to connect fax machine to pc


The KX-FM131BX, KX-FM131CX and KX-FM131AL do not connect directly to a computer. They only have RJ-11 connections (to the phone line (line in) for all models and to another phone or answering machine (in some cases).

To send and receive faxes with a computer, you need some sort of USB or network port on the machine. Brother has some that may fit your needs: http://www.brother-usa.com/Fax/ModelDetail/2/FAX2840/Overview is one of their lower end models.

I hope this helps.

You could set up the Brother fax in a network, but the telephone part would still not work. Install a modem in the comuter, they are cheap....

If you have a hand set try to use it as a phone. If no dialing tones are present check the phone line connection. If the fax is well connected there is a good chance that you need a part for the machine.
