By default Brother uses BRN001<MAC> as the default hostname. Without knowing how your network is configured I can't say why the printer is not being resolved. How is the printer configured? Static IP or DHCP?

I would expected that avahi would be running which would automatically detect your printer on the network and maybe using a dnssd:// URL.

I'm fairly certain that the ip for the printer is probably dynamic. I think the ip can change according to needs. Currently it is 192.168.1.14

You can configure the printer using a static IP or add a DHCP IP reservation in your router. With the later you do not have to worry about IP collisions.

You can edit the connection in the cups web printer page and change

lpd://BRN001BA9517A3D/BINARY_P1 to lpd://IP_address/BINARY_P1
