I have a MFC-J480DW that I can't get connected with my MAC

Customer Question

I have a MFC-J480DW that I can't get connected with my MAC laptop. I do not have a hard-drive computer anymore, just my laptop connected with WI-FI. There is a CD Rom that came with the printer; does that need to be downloaded in order to connect? I do not have a CD Rom opening on my laptop.
JA: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: I just got it. Serial Number is *****
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: MAC laptop. Not sure on the OS. I am at work and do not have my laptop with me.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I haven't been able to use it since I got it in December.
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
