When you purchase a new wireless or wired Brother printer, the default password will be set as “0000”. However if you forget the password and want to recover it, please see my solution.

##Solution:

If your device is connected to a local area network (LAN) and you know what type of Operating system that computer is using, try the following steps:

If you know the network name (SSID) for your router or access point, you can find it in the documentation that came with your router. Write down this information before making any other settings changes to your wireless network.

Make sure your computer is connected to the same wireless network as the Brother printer.

Open a Web browser and type the IP Address of your router/gateway in the address bar, then press Enter. The default gateway is typically set to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (a user name and password prompt may appear). If you do not know the administrator username and password, look for this information in the documentation that came with your router/gateway.

Type the administrator username and password, then click OK (the default username and password are both often “admin”). These settings can be changed by the router’s administrator. Make sure that Enable DHCP is selected if you use a LAN connection without a static IP address.

Click Wireless Settings (this setting may be found under Advanced or Setup in some models).

Select Infrastructure Mode, then select the Security tab. Make sure that your router’s security is set to WPA2 Personal and enter a passphrase where prompted. If you do not know what type of encryption to use on your wireless network, contact the network administrator or your wireless router/access point documentation.

Click OK to save these settings.

Reconnect your computer to the wireless network, then try printing again from your Brother printer. If you do not have access to a computer that is already connected to your wireless network, please see Connecting an Access Point or Extender to Your Wireless Router.

If your Brother printer is not connected to a wireless or wired network, try the following steps:

Make sure that you have an Ethernet cable, then connect one end of the cable to your Brother printer and the other end of the cable in a LAN port on your router/gateway (the LAN port is typically labeled with an icon of a computer connected to a network).

Make sure that Enable DHCP is selected if you use a LAN connection without a static IP address.

Open the Control Center software on your computer, select the Network tab and then click Configure. Make sure that your Brother printer’s IP address does not have any numbers in the fourth box (this is typically set to 192.168.x.x, and the number must be in the range of your network settings).

After you have made any changes, click OK then print a Network Configuration page or Utility Report from your Brother printer to confirm that everything was configured correctly.

If you do not have access to a computer that is already connected to your wireless network, please see Connecting an Access Point or Extender to Your Wireless Router.

If you do not know the network name (SSID) for your router/access point, contact the administrator of your wireless network. You will need the SSID in order to configure your Brother printer to your wireless network.

If you do not know the administrator username and/or password for your wireless network, contact the administrator of your wireless network. This information is typically provided by the same person who gave you the SSID for your router/access point.
