I am having difficulty installing my IP Printer onto my macbook pro.


I have gone on system preferences and then on to add printer and put in my wireless IP address - which my printer is on, and the name of the printer but I dont think my mac is finding it.  As when I go to print using that printer there is an exclamation mark in a triange in front of its name and it says the printer is busy when it isnt.


This printer is also installed on my other windows desktops as an ip printer and it works perfectly fine I am just very confused why it wont connect to my laptop and Im not sure what I am doing wrong. I have just been typing the name of the printer in in the format it is on my windows desktops


e.g. \\MASTER\Brother HL-2130series




      FX Document Centre 236 PCL 6


Please help I am so confused!

MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
