Overview 3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, we recommend following one of the setup methods
outlined in the Quick Setup Guide.
The wireless setup method using the installer CD-ROM and a USB cable is the easiest method for setup.
For additional wireless configuration methods please read this chapter for more details on how to configure
the wireless network settings. For information on TCP/IP settings, see How to change your machine’s
network settings (IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway) uu page 4.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the WLAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large
graphics, you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer, or USB for the
fastest throughput speed.
• Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you will need to know your Network name: (SSID) and Network Key.
If you are using an enterprise wireless network you also need to know the User ID and Password.

default factory settings uu page 43.)
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Light utility 1
or Web Based Management
applications, which also can be used to configure many aspects of the network. (See Other Management
Utilities uu page 7.)
1
For Macintosh users, you can download Brother's latest BRAdmin Light utility from http://solutions.brother.com/.
TCP/IP 4
If you connect the machine with a network cable to your network, use the Wired LAN menu selections. If
you connect the machine to a wireless Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
Boot Method 4
This selection controls how the machine obtains an IP address.
Auto mode 4
In this mode, the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server. If it can find one, and if the DHCP server
is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will
be used. If no DHCP server is available, the IP Address is set using the APIPA protocol. After the machine is
initially powered ON, it may take a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a server.
Static mode 4
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the
Boot Method to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server
from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the Boot Method, use the
machine’s control panel, BRAdmin Light utility or Web Based Management.
IP Address 4
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have chosen a Boot Method of Static,
enter the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for the IP
address to use). If you have chosen a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to determine its
IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will probably be
incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you contact your
network administrator for an IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.
Page: 42

Subnet Mask 4
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or BOOTP to
obtain the subnet mask, enter the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the subnet
mask to use.
Gateway 4
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or
BOOTP to obtain the gateway or router address, enter the address you wish to assign. If you do not have a
gateway or router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
IP Boot Tries 4
This field displays the number of attempts the machine will try to obtain an IP address when the Boot Method
is set to any setting except Static.
APIPA 4
The setting of On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a Link-Local IP address in the range
(169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method
you have set. (See Boot Method uu page 36.) Choosing Off means the IP address does not change, when
the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method you have set.
IPv6 4
This machine is compatible with IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol. If you want to use the IPv6
protocol, choose On. The default setting for IPv6 is Off. For more information on the IPv6 protocol, visit
http://solutions.brother.com/.
Note
• If you set IPv6 to On, turn off the power switch and then turn it back on to enable this protocol.
• After you choose IPv6 On, this setting will be applied to both the wired and wireless LAN interface.
