Setting up my Brother MFC 9130CW wireless network printer .

HI!....I just setup Mint 20 and now I'm trying to setup my printer, a Brother MFC 9100CW wireless network printer. My Apple and Windows PCs connect fine (even my phone connects). I managed to get the printer into CUPS and can see it fine at localhost:631, but the Status is
"Unable to locate printer "BRW606DC76614F9.local".". Can anyone please suggest how I can fix this?

Thanks for that help. After loading the printer installer and the .gz file I now get "Waiting for the printer to become available" I no longer get the Not connected message. Might be making progress. Thanks
