Brother HL-L2300D

If you need to install a Brother HL-L2300D in your home or office, you should keep in mind the following so that installation will go smoothly.

Cable, Data
As the printer is an HP, you will find that it would have been in operation for many, many years and will not be USB ready for tablets, modern laptops and desktop computers and will require you to have a Parallel to USB cable or a Parallel Port available on the device which some manufactures has dropped over the years for the USB technology.

Cable, Power
The power cable for the printer requires a three-pronged outlet located on the wall or on your surge protector. If you have only access to a two-pronged outlet, you will not be able to power the printer until you can find a three-pronged to two-pronged adapter. This can be bought in a 2-pack costing US$1.00.

Drivers, Windows
Drivers for Microsoft Windows are available from the manufacturer’s website. When installing as a local printer, you should ensure that the data cable is disconnected until the installation software prompts you to connect it. By doing this, you limit the Windows device from installing the printer twice and a duplicate with (copy 1).
