Get the current ip address by pressing the go button three times then use a bowser to go to the printer's ip address eg http://10.0.100.2
You can access the ip address config from there.

My brother hl 5250dn says its offline. How do I get it back online? I am using windows 8.1


Since you mention internet issues that your carrier fixed, I'd look at your local router. The router provides IP numbers to all the devices in your home network and if its been replaced or even reset, its likely offering up a new (and different) ip number to your printer. Try creating another printer object on your windows computer and see if windows can find the Brother connection that way. Windows won't scan for a changed IP number on a printer its already configured. If that fails, you can use the router to show you all the devices it sees on your home network and check to be certain the printer is present.

Can't configure dir-600 after enabling access point only


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are still not able to access it with above ip then press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.Then you can access it with 1 of the above ip.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

As you don't mention which OS your Mac is running, I'll try and answer assuming you have 10.6 or 10.5
The Brother uses the older network protocol, so the Default or Bonjour won't work.
Easiest way in 'Add Printer' is to select IP and enter the ip address you used in the web browser. Then your 5250 should appear in the list with the correct driver. If your using 10.5, you might need to go to Brother's web site and download the latest drivers.
All the options such as Duplex etc. will work with 10.5/6

Just reinstall the Printer on the Main PC install/Setup all software again, set for shared, Then, go to the clients PC's & set up that printer for NETWORKED Printer, Browse for it... should get you back. Installing a network printer allows multiple users and computer to share a single printer, rather than having numerous personal printers throughout the home or office. When installing a network printer, make sure it is located in a centralized place so that all users can access it conveniently, then install the software on each machine. You may find that newer versions of Windows may already have the necessary drivers installed. Finding the Printer on the NetworkTo install the printer using an IP address, go to Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes and then click the Add Printer icon. Next, clickCreate a new port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port from the drop-down menu. You will then be asked to enter an IP address. Enter the IP address of the print server and click Next. You will be asked to select the printer manufacturer and the model from the list. If you do not see your printer listed, insert the disk that came with the printer and click Have Disk.
If you do not know the IP address of the printer, you can sometime select Browse for printer in the beginning of the process. If the networked printer is attached to another computer is being shared, you will need to enter the name of the computer followed by the share name of the printer. For example: \\computername\printername.
Spending extra on a network printer can save you money in the long run. Network printers can be higher grade and print cartridges can last longer than personal ink jet printers.
