Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer
After a short not-use period I lose the WiFi connection to the printer. It will not print, ping gives no-reply. Printer shows (in display) connection fine.
The disconnect-problem was caused by the settings of the WiFi-router.
The settings are:
Capture(wlanadv.beacon) Beacon Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 100, Capture(hwlad2.milli) Milliseconds, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 65535) Capture(wlanadv.dtim) DTIM Interval: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 1, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 1 - 255) Capture(hwlad2.frathrh) Fragmentation Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2346, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 256 - 2346) Capture(wlanadv.rts) RTS Threshold: ( Capture(hwlad2.def) Default: 2347, Capture(hwlad2.range) Range: 0 - 2347)
This gives an optimal performance of the router, The default setting work fine for the printer, but gives less performance.
I now use a seperate wifi-router for the printer.
All is fine now.
