Adding to Havachat's "Is it wireless capable or just Usb Cable?" What model is that Brother printer? Exactly which Windows is the computer running? If not wireless, if not usb cable, is it ethernet cable? I'm betting it's usb cable. My Brother HL-1440 and Windows 7 Professional did not get along for awhile. Printing, not printing, printing, not printing. I would remove printer, reinstall printer, attempt to use the outdated drivers, leave off the outdated drivers, For awhile, I even installed the HP LaserJet Series II drivers and then the Brother HL-1440 drivers -- worked for a long time. With every reinstall, Windows 7 would search for, download, and install whatever Brother HL-1440 drivers it found on The 'Net. Finally, somehow, the printer, every day, always printed - until the day I replaced it with a Canon printer. My personal experience led me to ask you which Windows and which model you are using; and Havachat's question is also important for us to know.
"...and double check [both ends of the] cables..." -- Havachat. Absolutely do that; many times, a cable has been found to be working itself loose, making connection, not making connection.
