Just bought a Brother MFC5890CN. Prints via USB OK but cannot get it to be recognised on my network. I have a SKY Netgear router and have tried changing all the settings - the printer is never recognised despite being plugged in to a port. Its not a wireless printer - its been connected directly to one of the router ports so I thought it would be straight forward. . The Brother software cant find the printer either. I've switched of all firewalls virus checkers etc.

Any help greatly appreciated
