    Hello everyone, new member to the forum here. Last week my mom gave me her old printer from her office, and I tried to get it connected but my laptop just cannot find it. It is a Brother MFC-8460N, I plugged it directly to my laptop through ethernet but nothing happened. I plugged it into my router through ethernet and the port on the backside of the printer lights up so I know the ethernet port is transmitting data but it still does not show up on network or laptop. I would really appreciate the help, as I got the printer to print a page of configurations so I know the printer works. - Jake S
