I don't recall advising you to visit any driver download websites, and I'm not responsible for what you may have read on other threads that I've not posted on.
Don't single out Brother for not supporting their discontinued hardware. All hardware manufacturer's do it. Getting new drivers written for newer operating systems costs them money so they have to draw a line somewhere.
If they continued to support discontinued hardware indefinitely that's bound to impact on sales of new models
