Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I purchased this printer for its network ability. I have a D-link DI-624 router and after a while the connection will be lost. I used static IP and I have to restart the printer or the router in order to get it back. I also have a NAS storage on this router and I had similar problem originally and the tech person told me to use static IP outside the DHCP range (e.g. 192.168.1.22 while the DHCP range is 192.168.1.100 to 199). That solves the drive problem completely. However, this does not help with the 440CN printer. I have tried two brother Network printer and both have the same problem. Anybody has any hint? Thanks very muuch. Felix
I too had an issue with the network connectivity of both a Brother MFC-420CN and a Brother MFC-440CN being lost after about an hour or so of inactvity. I was also using a D-Link router (DI-524). Called up Brother they said that it was likely the router, called up D-Link and they were useless. Finally went out and bought a new Linksys router and voila, no more problem. I've had over 24 hours of continuous network connectivity on my Brother printer and I expect that it will continue to last.
The only suggestion made was that there's some sort of inactivity timeout on the D-Link ports of the router I was using. Since I had my printer set to static IP too it wasn't a DHCP lease issue, maybe some sort of power saving thing built into the router? There were no settings that could be changed to deal with that though.
