    I just bought the Brother DCP-7065DN.

    It is plugged to my network and has a valid IP address.

    I downloaded the up-to-date drivers from Brother's website and installed them.

    The scanner works fine.
    However, I cannot seem to be able to configure the printer.

    I am going to Settings, Printers, but when I want to add it, it's not there.
    If I enter the IP address, it seems to find it but installation never completes.

    Am I doing something wrong? I am new to the Mac world so that could very well be the case.

    PS: I can see the printer on my Windows laptop, no problem.

    Thanks in advance,

    OV

    As suggested somewhere, I plugged the printer directly through USB and it works fine.
    Plugged back to the network, and still not working :confused:

    I finally got it to work.

    Man that was not intuitive.

    I had to go to the CUPS homepage and configure it from there.

    All is good now :)
