Customer Question

We purchased a Brother MFC-7420 in 2005, SN U61278H5J541917 from Staples in Mesa, AZ
I have since moved and no longer have a phone line to fax machine. Can it be converted to a wireless machine?

Being a very old model, this unit has no wireless abilities at all, either for printing or faxing. In general, even new models don't have wireless phone access for fax purposes though, just wifi for printing/scanning.If you just don't have a phone line near the fax to plug it into, there are some devices you can purchase to create one.Example: that these do significantly reduce the speed though, your fax transmit/receive speed with this will likely be limited to 9600kbps.
