If there's still a problem I guess that will be back to the normal situation - with my printer if it doesn't print it usually means it's lost the wireless network connection and then it's a matter of unplugging the power supply and replugging. Then it picks up the network and works fine. Have to do that quite often but no other suggestions.

Hello, Am trying to install my printer brother HL-1070. Brother indicates that a driver can be found through Windows Updates for the HL-1060. HL-1070 or 1060, it is basically the same so that would be fine for me. Only if I follow the instructions for using Windows Updates I do not get any...
