Printer Server for an HL2240 Brothers printer

I originally purchased a Networking USB LPR Printer Server. I was able to set it up on a Windows 8 machine to the Brothers printer but not a Windows 7 machine. I emailed the printer server company and they tell me that their printer server is not compatible with my Brothers printer. Can someone please advised me as to what printer server I can use?

If you were able to set it up with Windows 8 there shouldn't be any issue with Windows 7.  

In general, if you can set an IP address to the printer server it's normally smooth sailing from there.  Just manually install the printer driver on the Windows 7 machine and create/use a standard tcp/ip port pointing to the ip address of the printer server.

What's the exact print server make and model?

I have had good luck with HP Print Servers for older printers.

Now with a Print Server, you need a Windows 7 Print Driver for the Windows 7 machine and a Windows 8 Print Driver for the Windows 8 machine.

I had contacted Brother and they reported that this model of printer does not print share. I went back to hooking it up to a single laptop. I have a wireless printer that I can use for my laptop. thank you all for your recommendations.
