I will say i am above average in computer knowledge, i have setup many different issues with computers, but this was had me stumped. I have a BROTHER MFC-7840W win xp prof and i have to say calling BROTHER customer service was awesome.
For 2Wire users, at first I was very skeptical because of issues i was having, but once understand how works, kinda nice not having all those extra boxes and wires from modem and routers. Anyway, the key to getting this to work is to go out to the router, wireless and mac address open that up and uncheck the box enable. All 2wire manufacture's at least AT&T should have a further notation that all manual and WIRELESS additions of mac address must have box unchecked. Once i unchecked, honestly within 2 seconds printer was set up.

The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.
Let's see if I can help you.
Begin by turning on your computer and your router
Make certain that you have the latest drivers from Brother by clicking on the following link: Brother Driver Downloads
Open Control Panel and click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems' and follow the instructions.
The last choice is to use the Setup Wizard. It seldom works for me but you might more luck than poor me. Here are the instructions:
The Connect to the Internet wizard will guide you through the steps of setting up an Internet connection.
Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by:
• Clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button
• Click on Control Panel.
• In the search box, type network,
• Click "Network and Sharing Center"
• Click Set up a new connection or network
• Then double-click "Connect to the Internet".
This should have you up and running.
All the best
