Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer
I've tried on a number of occasions to print to my wireless brother 6490CW printer that is stationed only 2'-0" away but cannot seem to get any readings to print. Both my PC and labtop were working and reading the 6490 at one point, but for some reason I can no longer print from both stations. How can I fix this problem?

Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.

if you have done a couple cleanings and it has not helped, its one of 2 things, either your ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced, or the nozzles are clogged on the printhead, also air can be in the turbing causing it not to let the liquid flow.

have you found a solution? I just purchased brother wireless printer, same thing, called and they said it must be my router. I haven't had a chance to play with it as much as you have, but before I do was wondering if you found a way to make it work yet?
