Question about Brother MFC-8460N All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Hi. 1st problem-I just purchased a Brother MFC-8890DW with optional second paper tray and am frustrated. I can't seem to get the printer to recognize the 2nd tray. It tells me I need to install it- I have followed the instructions, unplugged everything and started over, and it still does this. 2nd problem- Have purchased a Netgear dual band router and I can't seem to get all of the computers to connect to the wireless. 2 do, and 2 do not. I have reset everything and I have also tried just the single band- nothing can connect this way- with the dual band 2 HP laptops can connect but 2 Toshibas can not(different op systems). I have tried everything and then some- still come up short. Please help. Deborah

Did the paper tray come with it?
Make sure the tray is the correct one:

Try it with a few sheets of paper and make sure all protection tapes have been removed (if any).

Have you tried these steps : optional tray&ProductID=MFC8890DW

For the wireless problem,make sure the Tohibas are also using the same password if any.
Make sure the wireless switch is ON.
Some models ,you have to press a button to activate the wireless or by pressing Fn+another key.

Wipe the paper feed rollers with a clean rag wetted with plain water. You can also replace the feed rollers, search for "paper feeding kit" for this printer. Should be $20 to $30.
