    usually, people get into brother printer is not connecting to WiFi trouble due to the few causes:

    incorrect WiFi information.
    Weak signal.

    When you go through such troubles, you should try to fix them by using the instructions given below:

    brother

     

    Reboot the brother printer & Wifi router. once your printer will be ready for work. you need to check if it is connected to the wifi now or not.
    Did you check the wifi password? is it correct? if you haven’t check the wifi password yet, please go ahead and check it first.

    If you have any doubt on password? you may go ahead and change your wifi password first, and then try to connect brother printer to the wifi.

    Place your printer near by the router. now try to connect it with the wifi.

    Let’s do this,

    Reset The WiFi Connection- 

    If you have recently made any changes into your WiFi profile, and right after that your brother printer won’t connect to the WiFi.

    This means, your printer has stored old WiFi settings into it. That’s why it is not connecting to the WiFi.

    In this case, you have to reset the WiFi settings into your brother printer.

    To do that, you need to follow the instructions given below.

    • Go to settings > click on network.
    • Select reset network settings using up and down arrow.
    • Now you will get a confirmation message, you need to press 1 to reset the network.

    Finally, your printer will reset network setting and reboot itself automatically.

    This process may take some time. So you need to wait till that time.

    Once your printer will be power up. You need to connect your brother printer to the wifi using latest password.

    Are you still going through brother printer won’t connect to wifi issue?

    1. Unplug the power cable from your brother printer, and then hold the power button for 10 seconds.
    2. Now power on your brother wireless printer. Go to the wireless settings and try to connect with the wifi network now.

    If you still unable to connect your brother printer to the wifi.

    You should make a little change on network name and then try to connect wifi the wifi. let’s see what happens there.

    Please help me I am going through brother printer won’t connect to wifi issue.

    I am trying to connect my brother printer to the wifi. It is giving me the option to choose the encryption type. I have Wep 64 Bit encryption on my wifi.

    Which is not presented on the brother printer. All encryption I have for the wifi on my brother printer is listed below.

    1. WPA
    2. WPA 2.
    3. WEP.

    Can anyone tell me how can I add my new encryption type on my printer?

    WEP encryption method will work perfectly for 64 bit and 128 bit. You need to select this encryption type and then try to connect your printer.

    If you still go through the brother printer is not connecting to the wifi problem. I would suggest you to change the wifi name and password both for your wifi. and then try to connect it from the beginning.

    If you have connected your printer to wifi properly but it won’t print and giving you an offline error message, you need to visit:
