I had the same problem
on my brother MFC-9320CW
I set it up to work over wifi and it worked well for months then i started having issues one day (showing offline)
i had to restart the printer all the time to be able to print again (showing as Online).
but after 10 - 15 mins it lost connection again and I could not see it on network (PING IP)
I couldn't even web-interface to the printer in the browser using its IP address (** see below)
It appeared to point at a printer problem
I know this may seem strange but eventually my investigation came to finding that it was a router problem - well my router anyway.
It doesn't make sense i know - but it was definitely a bizarre router problem in my case.
After that i was able to web-interface to the printer
I RECOMMEND YOU DO THIS:-
1. turn off your printer
2. restart your router
3. wait 2 mins
4 restart your printer
IF YOU FEEL CONFIDENT TO DO EXTRA TECHNICAL/NETWORK CHECKS
Also allows you to manage things at your machine
5. ** find out the IP address of the printer - either on the printer itself - menu>network>IP
ive setup my printer to be static IP so i always know what it is
OR If you know how to get into the control panel (web-interface) of your router then it will show active connections and IP addresses of equipment - including your brother printer
6. i use the web-interface as it immediately shows me if i have a dropped wifi problem--If the printers control panel is avalible in my browser then all is fine

SOURCE: cant connect printer to wireless laptop.

have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop...
your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.

SOURCE: MFC 440cn, lost mfl pro suite

The advice given so far is not entirely accurate.

On the Brother Wesbsite:

Select the downloads link.


When searching for your download

Step 1:
make sure you have "ALL" selected

Step 2 and 3 are self explanatory

Hit the search button and then you are looking for the download that says "full software and driver package".

Install as directed.

SOURCE: My MFC 685 CW will not print.


Hello ,

First, we will have to make sure the printer is properly connected to the network

  1. Go to your printer.
  2. Press “menu” and scroll down to network, then WLAN
  3. Go to TCP/IP
  4. Go to IP address. Make sure there is an IP address here (not 000.000.000.000). Change the last 3 digits to “050”
  5. Change the boot method to “static”

If your IP address is not a valid one (all zeroes) or is an APIPA address (starting with 169.254.#.#) you will need to run the wireless setup wizard again as the machine is not properly connected wireless

If you had a valid IP address before changing anything, it means that the printer offline is caused by the computer not being able to locate the printer.
This is usually caused by the printers IP address changing.

Changing the boot method to static will make sure the IP address on the printer does not change.
Now we will have to make sure the computer knows where to find the printer.

On your computer, go to your start menuè control panelè printer
Here you should see your brother printer. Right click on the printer and select “properties” (If you are running windows Vista, make sure select “run as administrator” and then properties)
Go to the “ports” tab



Select “add Port…” and then double click on “standard tcp/ip port”.
This will bring you to the add port wizard, click next.

In the field for “Printer name or IP address” enter in the new IP address of your printer and then press next and finally “finished”.
Make sure to apply the changes.

You should now be able to print.

Thank you,

I have a new MacBook Pro and cannot get my Brother printer to work with it. The computer recognizes the printer but does not print.


Hi,
Did you install the Mac driver for MFC? The MFC comes with driver for windows and Mac. Place the Mac Driver disk to DVD slot and run the installation for your MFC printer. Follow the instruction to complete the installation.
When you try to print something, make sure the MFC printer is selected.
If you've done all of this and still not able to print, please turn off your MFC, wait 15 seconds and turn on again to see problem solve or not.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.
