My Mac all of a sudden will not communicate with my Brother

Customer Question

My Mac all of a sudden will not communicate with my Brother MFC-685CW. The airport does connect me to the internet, but I can't print anything.

Is the printer connected through the airport? Can you print to it if it is connected directly? Did you recently upgrade your computer or operating system?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I connected the printer to the airport with a USB cord and after making a few changes on the printer settings it now works. No idea why it won't talk to the airport without the USB cord as it used to. I guess I will just leave it connected.
