Effortless Wi-Fi Setup for Your Brother Printer

Understanding Your Connection Options

To connect your Brother printer to a wireless network, you have several methods available depending on your devices and network setup. Whether you’re using Apple AirPrint, a wireless router, or directly via your computer, each method is outlined to provide clear instructions.

Connect with a Wireless Router

If you have access to a wireless router, you can easily connect your printer using the infrastructure mode. This requires connecting both your mobile device and the Brother printer to the same wireless router. Follow these steps:

  • Ensure your mobile device is connected to the Wi-Fi network.
  • On your printer, navigate to the [WLAN] menu using the [Menu] and [ Down arrow ] buttons, and press [OK].
  • If your router supports WPS, you can also use WPS for easier setup.

Using WPS for Connection

For routers with a WPS button, simply press the WPS button on the router and the corresponding option on your printer to connect without entering a password.

Manual Connection Without a Router

If you do not have a wireless router, connect your printer directly to your computer using the Wireless Direct method:

  • Download the necessary drivers from the Brother website.
  • Choose Wireless Direct and connect using the SSID and password provided by your printer.

Setting Up Connection on Your Devices

Once the printer is connected to the network, you’ll need to connect your mobile devices or computer:

  • On your mobile device, go to [Settings] -> [Wi-Fi] and connect to the same network your printer is on.
  • Select the printer from the list of devices available on your printing app or settings.

Additional Setup for Computers

For computer connections, follow these detailed steps:

  • Install the downloaded printer driver and select [Wireless Network Connection] during the setup.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation, ensuring your printer is discovered over the network.

Optimizing Your Printing Setup

After establishing a connection, perform a test print to ensure everything is set up correctly. You can now enjoy wireless printing from your devices, offering convenience and flexibility for all your printing needs.
