MacOS X Description This tool updates the firmware of your brother machine via the internet, by sending firmware to your machine from your internet server. When we attach a USB cable to an Brother mfc printer, the computer will try to recognize it and if it has a suitable driver, it can do an automatic installation and print. If the computer does not recognize the printer, we need to install the driver. The new printer is equipped with a CD that contains a Printer driver for a different operating system, which allows us to install manually.

Capable of printing very good quality text and business graphics at reasonably fast rates, the MFCW is a fine choice for offices that work in a black-and-white world. Setup is a snap. After powering up the machine and installing the toner cartridge, you have three connection options: Ethernet, USB 2.
The trickiest connection was the wireless, which required setting up IP printing. After some time flipping through the user manual, we figured it out and wireless printing worked smoothly.
Three large buttons allow you to choose between the fax, scan, and copy functions. The control panel consists of rubber buttons, and a bright, backlit LCD clearly displays the settings you can choose from. The scanner performs a preview scan on specific parts of the glass based on the document size you select, requiring you to be very precise about where you place your documents on the glass. The MFCW output had very good results overall, impressing our panel of experts.
Text quality in a Word document looked clean and professional, earning a Very Good rating. We also printed a document containing mixed elements, including fine, curved lines and graphics, which earned another Very Good rating.
Print speeds were reasonably fast. It took just under 38 seconds to print a ten-page Word document, and 17 seconds to print a one-page Word document. Color scanning was a bit on the slower side: it took 1 minute and 57 seconds to scan an 8-byinch photo at dpi. Since the MFCW is a monochrome multifunction device, you only have to worry about replacing one toner cartridge.
