Configure Your Machine for a Wireless Network Using the Machine's
Control Panel Setup Wizard
Before configuring your machine, we recommend writing down your wireless network settings. You will need
this information before you continue with the configuration.
1. Check and record the current wireless network settings of the computer to which you are connecting.
Network Name (SSID)
Network Name (SSID)
Your access point/router may support the use of multiple WEP keys, however your Brother machine
supports the use of the first WEP key only.
If you need assistance during setup and want to contact Brother customer service, make sure you have
your SSID (Network Name) and Network Key ready. We cannot assist you in locating this information.
If you do not know this information (SSID and Network Key), you cannot continue the wireless setup.
How can I find this information?
Check the documentation provided with your wireless access point/router.
The initial SSID could be the manufacturer's name or the model name.
If you do not know the security information, please consult the router manufacturer, your system
administrator, or your Internet provider.
