I received my Christmas gift early. It's a Brother MFC 7840 Multi-function print/scan/fax/copy station. I set it up without having to call my son the network administrator. It's set up to run over my secure wireless network. Everything works. I'm so proud of myself.
I will give some credit to Brother, Inc. The instructions were easy to follow, and they had a seperate Install CD for Windows 7 users.
