why is a 10 hour download 'impossible' .I done things like that many times when on dial up.

use a download manager so if it cuts offyou will be able to resume the download from the point it cut off not have to go back and restart the entire thing.and simply set it to run over night.it's not hard to do and you'll wake up with the download finished.

or a quick google (this took me about 2 minutes) and voila heres a much smaller download

3Mb will only take you 15 mins on dialp.

that package you were trying to get from brother.com is the FULL drivers and software package .the one I"ve linked to there is JUST the drivers it's all you'll need.

also with that model of printer have you tried just plugging it in and see if windows can install the drivers 'automaticaly' from it's own driver database.! wouldn't suprise me if it can

thanks drcspy i inadvertently tried to print from default printer .and found as you suggested that the driver must have been in the Windows data base ,all the time ,don't know why the error message no driver came up first ,then changed its mind. Have reloaded Java and Fire fox,perhaps fixed its self, all good , printing now .
