  2. Mine will connect perfect as instructions state but the only way I have a chance at printing is take a screen shot and select the photo option on the brother app. Then I will get a unablevto communicate even though the printer is making all sorts of clicking trying to print the page. Also the firmware update has never worked, alsways an error message. Very disappointed as I thought I was getting a decent printer. J480DW

  3. try changing the browser to google chrome . I Have seen people have trouble Printing online with edge and other browsers . As far as i know about updates Being failed …Try doing a uninnstall and install the printer again . see if that works …Keep us posted About it

  4. My brother HL-2270DW does not have a screen to set up the wireless. I moved and don’t have the CD to set up the wireless. How do I set up wireless with no CD and no screen on the printer?

  5. My printer jc47DW will not connect to my wifi. It was always connected. Now it won’t work. This is very frustrating. I know the network and password. It won’t pick up the network. If I enter the network it won’t take the key. Help. Ready to throw this out

    I did as instructed and it all worked fine and printed out confirmation that I was online but when I go to print anything, it still says the printer’s offline, even thoug the wifi button is lit on the printer. I’ve entered my network password 8 times and always successfully but the printer is still ‘offline’. HELP!

  7. Thank you for showing the step by step to connect my printer with WiFi. This is very helpful information.

  8. Can anyone help me? I periodically work from home and cannot get my Brother printer to work when I’m signed on to the VPN. What do I need to do differently? I had an HP that worked just fine but can’t do it with the Brother.
