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.

How do I prevent it printing symbols rather than text? Cant seem to get the printer to work

Wifi is a different ball game. However, uninstall the printer on your computer, then go online to, support, drivers, then identify your printer and download and install the epson supported package for your operating system. Install, restart, then look at control panel for installed printers and pick the one you just did and mark it as default printer.

Samsung ML-2525W printer & Mac OS X 10.6

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable (3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch (4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless) (5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch (6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).

Can I connect canoscan 4400f using ethernet cable

i believe is not possible to connect to a router. printers ar designed to be connected to computers via ethernet cables and bluetooth when both devices are bluetooth enabled.(must have a wifi bluetooth ethernet card installed or usb bluetooth installed via usb). is you want to have the printer to be used bye more than one computer at home or office. you must set up each computer to the printer as well.. in control panel look for printers.then set up the conections.if computer 1 is printing a document. computer 2 will have to wait. when done. then will print work for computer 2.

I need a list of printers I can use with my ipad

Using google printing function you can print from iPad, via a second computer that is linked to any printer. I have old dell from 2006 that I no longer use. I connected it via wifi to my home network and it is linkrd to a Brother 2002 printer via USB. I then followed the google classic printer instructions to configure printing network. It worked well sometimes, I will confess that a times it is a pain.

There are two ways to your problem:-

1. The printer is connected to another machine
Set up a Home WIFI system and then add a network printer on the machine that you want to print from. You however need to switch on the pc connected to the printer when want to print. If not sure on setting up a home WIFI system just check on the internet.

2. The printer is WIFI enabled
Just install the printer on your machine and make sure that your printer is hooked up to the WIFI network as well.

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.

most network printers DON'T require a driver to print via the network, all you have to do is to select it from the printers list when you are sending the print job.
