Re: setting up wireless printer
To assign an IP address to a KM 3035 you need to select the system menu/counter button above the touch screen. On the left hand side of the menu you need to select Printer Defaults. From this menu you need to select Interface and than select the network tab from the resulting screen. Scroll down to highlight TCP/IP and select change. From this next screen you should be able to assign a new IP address.

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system.

What you need to do is to physically connect the printer to the modem, now your computer should be connected hardwired or wireless to this modem. When you connect the printer to the modem , the modem will assign an IP Address to the printer, you can look on this ip address by printing a configuration report from the printer itself.
Now we have 2 options here, use the software that came with the printer (installation disc) to install the device and at some point of the installation it should detect the printer automaticaly, just remember choosing "network install"
If you already have the software on your computer, you will need to uninstall / reinstall the software so the computer can detect the new ip address. Or you can set the ip address manually by going under printer and faxes on the control panel, make a right click on the P4350 icon, go to properties, then the "Ports" Tab and click Add Port, you will need to select Standard TCP/IP, click new .. and then type the IP Address
This should connect your printer with your new modem - computer
Good Luck !!

Hello , First, we will have to make sure the printer is properly connected to the network
Go to your printer.
Press “menu” and scroll down to network, then WLAN
Go to TCP/IP
Go to IP address. Make sure there is an IP address here (not 000.000.000.000). Change the last 3 digits to “050”
Change the boot method to “static”
If your IP address is not a valid one (all zeroes) or is an APIPA address (starting with 169.254.#.#) you will need to run the wireless setup wizard again as the machine is not properly connected wireless If you had a valid IP address before changing anything, it means that the printer offline is caused by the computer not being able to locate the printer. This is usually caused by the printers IP address changing. Changing the boot method to static will make sure the IP address on the printer does not change. Now we will have to make sure the computer knows where to find the printer. On your computer, go to your start menuè control panelè printer Here you should see your brother printer. Right click on the printer and select “properties” (If you are running windows Vista, make sure select “run as administrator” and then properties) Go to the “ports” tab
Select “add Port…” and then double click on “standard tcp/ip port”. This will bring you to the add port wizard, click next. In the field for “Printer name or IP address” enter in the new IP address of your printer and then press next and finally “finished”. Make sure to apply the changes. You should now be able to print. Thank you,
by default ip address of linksys is 192.168.1.1
to star config you need to be connected with ethernet cord rj-45 or conenct via wireless by conencting to linksys on wireless
admin user: blank admin pws: admin
*choose a protocol on your linksys router on internect conenction type:
check isp protocol :
dhcp: needs serail number of mac address it picks up automatic pppoe: needs username and pws from isp
*the ip address has to be diferent from the isp modem:
isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.1.1 incorrect isp modem 192.168.1.1 linksys 192.168.2.1 correct change the ip on lan settings on your router
*wireless: ssid by default is linksys
ssid: linksys wep : none
to setup wireless
access the wireless basic change the ssid to any network name enable the wireless password choose wireless security enable wep key 10 digit hex pws
make shure you saved settings on every settings
connect a lan wire from router to printer print printer information find out ip pls add static ip address on the pc(printer and pc should be in one network) type ip address on the internet explorer change the ip address of your router class ip network range remove static ip from pc
You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:
Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.
I have a MFC665CW connected wirelessly to a router and a pc connected by ethernet to the router, with a broadband satellite receiver connected to the WAN port of the router (plan to add another PC to the network soon, so have set up the network in advance). I had trouble with the brother status montior flashing 'Ready' then 'Offline' all the time, when I knew the printer was always connected to the network. I had set up the DHCP stuff on the router to allocate IP addresses to everything that connects to the network, like you are supposed to. I updated drivers and firmware, but the problem continued.
When I checked the router status log I saw that one MAC address in the network was making a DHCP request every 5 minutes (i.e. it was asking the router to allocate it an IP address at regular intervals). Every time the router answered that request it made the Brother status monitor go 'offline'. The MAC address was my broadband modem. I fixed the issue by setting the router to allocate a static IP address to the MAC id for my broadband modem (in the DHCP setup section in the router's admin interface). That stopped the dynamic IP address requests from the broadband modem and the Brother status monitor works fine now. I also set static IP adresses for the printer and PC to be on the safe side, although I don't think that matters.
So, check your network log and look for a MAC id that makes regular DHCP requests and then set a static IP address for it. Hope this helps you guys too.
I presume that the printer is not directly connected to the PC. Now if the Printer is connected to the USB port on the router, you have to check if the router detects it and the printer server is online. Also since u changed the router, you will have to change the settings in your PC to reflect the IP address of the printer server (the router.)
If the MP830 is connected wirelessly to the router, make sure that the IP address of the printer is in the same subnet as your laptop. (Check the configuration settings, they can be configured using a browser by pointing it to the IP address of your printer)
