Your computer should pop up and tell you that you've installed a new piece of equipment anytime you plug something into the USB port, since most peripherials are plug and play. If not, then it doesn't recognize the printer. You may have a bad USB port. Try plugging the wire into a different USB port during the installation process.

With Brother, you have to use their installation CD and follow their instructions. You can't hook up the wires till *after* the CD has walked you through their installation process.

Try reinstalling using their CD and a new USB port to see if it will work now.

I don't have a solution, but I have a similar problem with a new Brother 8690DW MFC machine. Out of the box - I can't establish wireless connection. Brother "tech support" (!) insists I am typing in the WEP key incorrectly... doesn't matter to them that I've configured literally hundreds of devices with encryption keys before.

I'm about ready to return this machine and get another. Yet, I suspect that the Brother setup instructions are missing something I need to do - I can't figure out what, though, and have been through every relevant setting I can find.

hi there, this should work for you:

When you disconnect an Ethernet cable from the printer, wireless network will be enabled.
On the other hand, when the Ethernet cable is connected to the printer, wired network is enabled.

If you press the Go button for approx. 13 seconds, the network setting page will be printed out. Then release the Go button, wired network will be switched to wireless network even if the Ethernet cable is still connected.

You can then verify your network settings and change between wired and wireless setups.

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

Brother printer and Neygear router wireless connection bad.


Had the same issue. Change the router wireless security settings from TKIP to AES algorithms. This did the trick for me.

The phone wire from your wall jack gets connected to the jack marked "line" on your printer. If you are also are connecting a separate phone to the printer connect a phone wire from the jack marked "ext" to your phone. Just in case you need a manual here is where you can download one. Please rate if this helped. Thanks. Have a nice day. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc000222/MFC-210C_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf
