This is a strange one. I have a Brother MFC-990CW networked printer that is 10 years old but has been working just fine this entire time using the manufacturer's stock software package. All of a sudden after a Windows Update, it now no longer prints. I will send a print job, it spools up in the que and says print job is transmitted, but nothing happens in the printer. After much digging around, it seems the only way I can get the network printer to work is by adding the printer manually through the network such that it uses the default generic Windows print drivers. This method means that printing goes through the "WSD" port instead of the standard TCP/IP port.
