  • How do I set my printer Brother DCP L5500DN to print on one side only.

    To set the Brother DCP-L5500DN to print one side only, you will need to deselect automatic double sided printing in the driver settings.

  • Is this printer able to print wirelessly from my laptop via my wifi? I have a current printer (Epson) which I need to replace - the printer is hooked up to my wifi as is my laptop and it can print from the laptop directly via this wifi. Is this printer able to do the same thing?

    Unfortunately, the Brother DCP-L5500DN is not a wireless printer as it has a USB and Network interface only. The Brother MFC-L5750DW is a model further down this series, which includes a wireless interface and would allow you to print wirelessly from your laptop/desktop.

    Great printer. Quality is spot on and performance is fab.

  • Becky Evans 10 October 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Fast workhorse

    Brought to replace an earlier Brother mono machine that had lasted forever. This is even better. It's lightening fast, cost effective and the clarity is great on what is essentially a cheap office work horse.

  • Shafiq Siddiqi 17 February 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Reliable Supplier

    I am impressed with the speed of delivery, quality of merchandise, and reliable service from Printerland, a company which I have used for the second time. Highly recommended.


What is Google Cloud Print?

With Google Cloud Print, you can print any document from anywhere to your Google Cloud Print connected printer.

When you print using Google Cloud Print, your file is securely transferred over the internet to your printer. Whether you are in the same room or even in a different country on a different continent you can print whatever you want using any device such as a smartphone, tablet PC or desktop computer.

Share with friends or colleagues

Google Cloud Print enables you to share your printer with friends, family or work colleagues with ease. From the Google Cloud management page you can share your printer securely with trusted individuals.

Scalable Printing Solution for Business

Google Cloud Print is used internally by Google employees on hundreds of printers and is designed to scale to your business demands, growing with your business or as a replacement for your existing printing infrastructure.
What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk.
