The device driver of the Brother MFC-3200C allows for the implementation of Universal Serial Bus based devices over Local Area Networks like they are physically connected to the host computer system. During recent years the use of Universal Serial Bus interface based hardware components limits access to the functionalities to the host computer system. This means that the best way to share the features of the hardware component is to unplug it and connect it to the computer system that needs it. This solution is not only impractical but also time consuming and may damage the connector. The device driver of the Brother MFC-3200C provides the computer user with a way of sharing the printing and other functionalities of this device with the use of a remote port. The Universal Serial Bus interface port that is generated by the device driver in this instance is a virtual port that must also be supported by the network appliance like a router or a hub.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The absence of the correct device driver may not activate all built-in feature sets of the supported hardware component. Primarily only the basic printing operations will be supported in case the Brother MFC-3200C is connected to a Universal Serial Bus interface port on a router hardware. The device driver was designed by the manufacturer in order to activate the fax messaging, scanning, and copying functions of the hardware component aside from its basic printing features. The device driver also allows the Brother MFC-3200C to function as a Personal Computer fax messaging center. In this capacity the computer user will be able to send out documents as fax messages but will not be able to receive incoming faxes. The outgoing fax message may use a scanned document or a word document as its source. The computer user may also take advantage of Optical Character Recognition technology to expand the functionality of this hardware component. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother MFC-3200C Remote Setup Port USB errors before installing any driver updates.
