From HDD mode on the centre, press menu and select "Station Management".
If the option is available select "Delete Station" and delete any stations listed.
Select "Add New Station" and the unit will start searching.

On the station press menu and select "installation mode"
If this option is not available, try from another source setting, such as AUX.

Once the centre has found the station, press stop on the centre, as the station cannot connect until the centre has stopped searching.

If this doesn't work, you will have to reset both units to factory settings and start again.(Menu -----> Settings ------> Restore)

Mine did the same, the station was trying to connect on channel 1 wi-fi where the centre was on channel 11, check under information and wi-fi for both. I then did a restore on the station, put both into installation mode and they found each other after a few mins.

Hope this helps

I need control center for my brother mfc-240c

You can download that from Look near the top-right corner for the blue box labeled Service & Support, and click "Downloads." You'll have to select your machine's family (Multi-Function) and model, then your computer's Operating System. For most machines, Brother offers a choice of barebones drivers or the complete package; you'll want the full package to get the Control Center.
Brother requires that you install the driver package before you plug the machine into your computer. If you have already plugged it in and let Windows try to install a generic driver or something, you may need to download and run a utility for uninstalling the machine completely before installing the package properly. That utility program is probably at the bottom of the page of drivers on the Brother site.

I want to change the name (My caller ID)when I fax how can I do that It show up as Holy Dreams that name of our former company. I want it to show as our new company. How do I do that

I believe you wish to change the "Station ID" on your MFC-240C. This setting will print out your company name and other header info on your faxes:

1) Press the <Menu> key
2) Press <Up> or <Down> Navigate to "Initial Setup"
3) Press <OK>
4) Note: Your station ID is already set, therefore the machine will prompt you to choose: (1) change, or (2) exit without changing - choose (1) to change
5) Enter your fax number, then press <OK>
6) Enter your company name using the dial pad keys. This may take a little practice. Press the dial pad key the correct number of times to produce your desired letter. Use your (>) right navigation key to advance to the next space. If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press the left navigation key to move the cursor under the incorrect letter.
7) Press <OK> when finished
8) Press <Stop/Exit> to resume normal operation

There! You should have it. I hope this helps!

I installed the black ink cartiage but the printer still says black ink is empty. I have a brother multi-function center mfc240c

I had a similar problem, but my problem stopped when I changed back to the Original Brother Cartridge. After you open the black lid, take the black out and wipe it clean. The well that is. They dont work well with Generic.
Let me know okay?
Good Luck :0)

This unit cannot be used as a printer unless you purchase a separate special interface This is from the Brother manual for your product. This was written some time ago and I'm not sure that it is still available. I did a search on Brother and found that they still offer it. Whether it still in stock or not I don't know. Their price is $99.00. Add to this the price of the thermal ribbons and it does not make a very efficient printer. You can purchase the optional Multi-Function Link® package (also called ?Missing Link?). Multi-Function Link® turns your fax machine into a multi-function center, by enabling you to use your fax machine as a printer and a scanner and to use it to fax messages from Windows® applications in your computer. The Multi-Function Link® option is for Windows® 3.1x and Windows® 95/98. Multi-Function Link® is available at most Brother retailers. If you cannot find it, you can order Multi-Function Link® directly from Brother. The item number is PCI-1. Wish I had better new for you. Ed
