Title: Brother MFC-J5910DW wireless printer problems
Post by: donwatson on December 13, 2016, 08:05:15 pm
Hi Mark,
I am back with this problem with this printer.
I can not get the wireless connection to work. I had a topic here in September but I was able to use the Windoze computer to print out my sketches. I have now lost the Windoze computer and would like to establish a wireless connection with my Novatech computer running Pep 7.
Can you help ? where do I start ?

take care
Don W

Once you get it connected to your wlan it should just be a question of installing the printer in the normal manner


Good luck

PS I have this printer connected wirelessly with the Windows computer and it works ok. These instructions look much the same as when I connected the Windows computer. Hope fully it should all go well.

If you have this printer connected with your Windows PC you shouldn't need to do it again it should already be registered to your network

all you should need to do now is install the printer

Menu>System Tools>Printers
When the printer dialogue box opens click + Add on next screen click Network Printers and your printer should be listed select your printer then just follow the instructions


Good luck

Graeme

Thanks Graeme,
Carried out your latest suggestion and the printer has printed a test page.
Went upstairs and printed out a page from Writer and it worked well. Looks as if it is a success.
Thanks again

take care
