Configuration using a wireless computer.

  1. If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of your computer to Ad-hoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the printer.
  2. Wireless network terms and concepts
    When you configure the wireless network printer, you must ensure that your wireless network printer is
    configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main
    terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network printer.
    SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
    You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
    SSID
    Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
    (Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
    The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
    The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
    which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
    wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
    Channels
    Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 165.
    Authentication and encryption Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication (how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
    network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless device supports.
    Authentication methods
    The Brother printer supports the following methods:
    • Open system
    Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
    • Shared key
    A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
    The Brother printer uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
  3. I will advise you download this network manual and follow the instructions on chapters 3 and 4.
  4. Network Users Manual - English

Hello,

It could be a router issue. Try resetting the router and see if that will fix the problem. Look for your router's reset button, can usually be found at the back of the router, then use a pin to press and hold it for about 15 seconds.

Your printer is apparently still set with the IP address of the old router. You can either change the IP in the printer settings to match the router or uninstall the printer software and reinstall it and let it auto detect the router IP.

Will not make connection to wireless brother hl 4070 cdw printer


You might not be on the wireless network or the printer might not be on the wireless netowrk. try connecting to it via a usb cable and see if that works. if so try reconfiguring the settings on it for your wireless network than try again. Also if you have the disk the printer came with you can uninstall the printer put back in the disk, reinstall the printer and it might do all that I am saying automatically.
