You can't pair wi-fi to bluetooth, which is what you appear to be attempting. The printer is looking to join a computer network and needs the password for your home wi-fi network. Since your phone is not an access pint, you can;t connect them directly.
After you have the printer on your network, if it supports AirPlay, then you can print from the phone to the printer.

    Thanks Jeff. I still don't know how to get the printer onto my network

  • Jeff Nov 19, 2014

    What is the printer model? If it has wireless capability, you need to go into the menu on the printer to the network and then have it search for your home network. Once it does that, ti will ask for the network passcode. Enter that and it should be ont he network.

Brother 8890DW Wireless Configuration Difficulties. I want to configure the above printer through a wireless acess point connected to a router via ethernet. The router sees the printer, yet the computers...


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.

I am trying to hook up a new wireless printer, and I need to know a couple of issues. My motem is an Actiontec M1000 ssid is myquest3677 and I need to find the password, and the WLAN access point/router


Hi,

Welcome to FIxya. If you need you Security Key or Password (Network Key) on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase (Password). You can alsoThen Personalize you Network Key or Passphrase so that you can easily remember it. Then WLAN Access point is the Network Name or SSid which is myquest3677

Thanks for using Fixya.
