Install Brother HL-1440 as network printer on Windows 7

I cannot find a driver when trying to install the printer over my home network.
  • Printer is installed and working on Dell XP 3100
  • Printer has prevously been installed via usb on Tosh Win 7
  • Printer & file sharing are set up on both computers
  • Files and printers can be seen from the Tosh that are on the Dell.
  • When i try to install, I get error message that a driver cannot be found. Remeber the printer is installed locally on both machines... so drivers are present.
Does anyone know how to direct to the driver? I do not have an printer install disc... installed from download.

thanks
JP

With my Brother, running the downloaded installer finds the printer already on he network. Sets it up and install the drivers. Otherwise, W& will try to use it's geneic WSD, which is not bidirectional.
I did have a problem that I resolved by completely uninstalling and re-running the latest installer from Brother's website. Hope that helps.
