Give the printer a static IP outside the DHCP range i.e. 192.168.1.200 Make sure your subnet and gateway are correct You should now be able to get the web page by typing in 192.168.1.200 into internet explorer. If you get it, you are all go. If not, check that you are actually connected. I have done possibly 100's of brother network printer installs, I have only had 2 with problems, one we had to change the modem from a dlink to a TP link and it worked ( Dont know why as the modem seems fine ) the other we had to change the modem to one with a better range ( they had a large house and only one wireless access point ) and this resolved the issue i.e. needed really good signal.

You will find the brother application will sometimes fail.. A simple "force quit" or reboot will fix it. Quite often when I print, the brother app will load up (brother app being the printer status monitor) and although its looking fine and dandy it's not doing anything. Same when trying to scan... it reports an error and a simply force quit and reload of the brother app is all that is required.
