The printer/cpu now defaults to Fax printing with every print command, AOL etc. I can select to print normally through menus after giving the print command but this was unnecessary before. I reinstalled the Brother CD but this didn't correct the problem. What am I missing?

Normally if i fax is sent, it will just give a message as Fax sent or it wont give any error. But if you want to get a confirmation whether the fax is sent or not, you can print a fax confirmation page on ever fax sent or received or both.

Here's what worked for me: I had everything set with my wireless network which included an Airport Extreme base station and two Airport Express units to extend range. I still couldn't plug and play with my printer.
1. You have to plug your printer into the Airport Express, turn it on, then select a document to print from your computer.
2. Select print from the pulldown menu (or select 'command P' on the keyboard).
3. When the print dialog window appears, go to the "Printer:" selection bar near the top of the window and select "print & fax preferences..."
4. This opens a new window, "print & fax." Near the bottom left of this window just below an icon list of your printers are a "+" button and a "-" button right next to each other.
5. Click "+". Yet another window opens which will reveal a list with your printer on it.
6. If you don't see your printer, click the "default" icon in the top left hand corner of the new window.
7. Select your printer, then click "add" on the bottom right hand corner of the window. The window will close automatically and return you to the "print & fax" window.
8. You should now see your printer in the list. You may say, "My printer was already in the list," but that's not good enough. The process you just went through enabled the computer to detect it on your network. You may want to use the "-" button to remove any previously listed printers from the list in the "print & fax" window.
9. Now you should be able to close the "print & fax" window and get some wireless printing done.
