Why does my Brother inkjet printer show up as a shared PC on my network?

Brother MFC-J270W. It shows up on my home network as a shared PC called "brother", however:
  1. I can't connect to it
  2. This facility is not mentioned in any documentation I have been able to find
Does anyone know what good this "feature" is?

My Brother wireless printer doesn't work after resetting my laptop.

I have a MacBook running OS X 10.6.8 and a Brother HL-2270DW printer. This morning I had to reset my entire system using Time Machine; everything else is up and running, but the printer doesn't work. I've tried reinstalling it with the printer setup disc, but the laptop won't detect our wireless connection when I get to that step (it suggests disabling my personal firewall, but I don't have one set up.), and the laptop won't let me add any printers in System Preferences. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated, because I've spent all afternoon trying to figure this out.

Why so last century?

Why are "i386" drivers supplied, and not 64-bit, for things like printer drivers? [more inside]

Printer/Scanner software causing restart problems

I installed software that came with a Brother MFC-9840CDW all-in-one and now my dell computer is having multiple problems at startup. The application itself failed to start citing missing registry data. Then, on restarting I get "Services.exe - Application Error" and clicking either OK or cancel causes an automatic shutdown timer to start. [more inside]

O Brother where art thou?

Printer connected via ethernet keeps disappearing from the network. How can I tell if it's a problem with the network, or a problem with the printer? [more inside]
