MFC 845CW Not Printing Via Wifi

Configured MFC 845CW for home wifi network
Installed drivers on 2 home computer; CAN print via wifi
Installed drivers on corporate laptop; CANNOT print via wifi.
Able to ping the printer from laptop, but cannot print. Uninstalled/Reinstalled about 3 times; no luck.
Added MFC to "Allowed Applications" in my corporate firewall; no luck.

Any ideas?

    Thanks for the link. I found an article that recommended creating a static IP address for the printer. Still testing all the functions, but it prints. (For some reason the "Name" of the printer was not being mapped to the dynamic IP address of the printer.)

I had same problem but could not find the solution. While trying I just checked firewall and problem was with the firewall.

What I did:

Control Panel->Windows Firewall->Exceptions->Add Programms->Browse->(C:\Program Files\Brother\Brmfcmon\BrMfcWnd.exe) browse to location -> OK

It is basicly to tell firewall allow access to this programe.

Iphone 4 S not syncing via wifi although enabled


The WiFi network must support uPnP. If you are on a corporate network uPnP is most likely not supported for security reasons. If you are using a home router go into the settings and make sure uPnP is on.

Unable to clean 50 (brother MFC-845CW


Hi, to clean up brother MFC-845CW

Open the printer

Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.

Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.

Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges

Try to print something now

You can also use the manual for help.

Hi Good Day,

1) Try this simple steps:

click on the windows logo (START BUTTON) then right click on computer then left click on properties or system properties then click on device manager then under network adopter look for wireless LAN make sure it doesn't have an X mark if so the driver for your wireless card is not installed.

if your computer still under warranty then you bring it back to the store where you purchase it have them replace it with a working computer.

2) try connecting your computer via ETHERNET cable and if your able to connect to the internet that way it mean that there's a hardware / software problem with your wireless adopter installed in your computer.

I cant print any documents my brother MFC-255CW says offline and i cant get it to work


I had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution anywhere. My laptop said the wifi Brother MFC-255CW printer was offline, when the printer was definitely online and connected.
In the end I simply went into Control Panel / Printers, selected the Brother printer, and deleted it off the network. Then I chose "Add a Printer" from the network, and reselected the only printer on my home network - which was the Brother MFC-255CW that I had just deleted. The computer reinstalled the driver, and everything was fine again - haven't had a problem since.

Brother 845cw printer is offline -


Had same issue and here is what worked for me.

1. Go to Printers and right click on Brother printer and choose 'Properties'
2. Click the 'Ports' tab and with proper Brother printer port highlighted click 'Configure Port'
3. In second field titled "Printer Name or IP Address" enter the IP address of printer*
4. Click 'OK' as need to exit out.

I'm using XP so this may be slightly different depeneding on your flavor of Windows. The main thing is to name the port with the IP address and not rely on name resolution.

Hope this works for you too!

* If you don't know your printer's IP address then you can go to your printer and under the 'Reports' section print-out the Network Configuration report to find IP address.
