How to Install Brother Printers without a CD

Do You Know How to Install Brother Printers without a
Brother printers are common in each work and home offices. While the printer out of the box comes
with everything you wish to install the printer's driver on your computer, not everyone can use the CDRom for installation. Many of todays sleek computer models don't have a CD-Rom drive in any respect.
Though you are installing an existing printer on a new computer you no longer have the CD-Rom, don't
worry. You can install the Brother Printer driver through online methods.
Find the driver at the Brother Support Service:
The driver usually downloads into your computer's "Downloads" folder, and you will need to open it and
move it to the "Printers" folder. Fortuitously, setup prompts can keep you moving to the next step; just
know that the "Printers" folder is in the control panel on the hard drive of your system. If the driver does
not create it there initially, the printer and computer might have trouble finding each other, even
though the drivers are installed. Drag and drop it into the right location if required.
Through the various setup prompts, choose the appropriate operating system. Most people choose the
full package setup so they can access all functions and features of the Brother printer, though you can
select a custom setting. Read and agree to the user agreement when prompted to continue through the
Configure the Printer to Your Network
Step 1: Having the drivers installed is really only steps one. Most printers are on wireless networks
these days, working with multiple computers or devices that simply don't plug into the printer, and the
printer is not always hard-wired into the wireless router. Configuring the Brother printer to your
network is important for correct functioning.
Step 2: Gather the wireless network information, including the network name and passwords. The
network name is also referred to as the SSID. Passwords are sometimes referred to as network keys or
encryption keys. This information is located on a sticker at the base of the wireless router. You will also
need a USB cable for the installation process.
Step 3: Connect the Brother printer to power but don't connect the USB cable yet. Turn on your
computer if it is not already on. You should already have installed the printer drivers. Open the printer
network driver and select the configure option, choosing the "Brother Peer-to-Peer Network."
Step 4: Connect the USB cable to the printer and computer. The prompts can ask to change the firewall
settings and potentially make adjustments to the antivirus software. These changes are required to
allow printer access to the network. Be sure to select "Wireless Setup" to ensure the printer can work
Step 5: over the network rather than the USB hard wire. The driver setup should recognize your
network, select it and follow the remaining prompts for setup. Unplug the USB and test the setup.
