Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
Won't accept the 26 digits I enter for wep code. Seems that there isn't enough room for all the digits.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

When entering the wep key, after each character is entered push the right arrow. If the same character repeats itself it will overwrite the other if you dont.
