WARNING
The machine must be grounded using a
3-prong plug.
Since the machine is grounded through the
power outlet, you can protect yourself from
potentially hazardous electrical conditions on
the telephone network by keeping the power
cord connected to your machine when you
connect it to a telephone line. Similarly, you
can protect yourself when you want to move
your machine by disconnecting the telephone
line first and then the power cord.
Note
If you are sharing one telephone line with an
external telephone, connect it as shown below.
Before you connect the external telephone,
remove the protective cap a from the EXT. jack

Set the receive mode to External TAD if

See Choose the correct Receive
Mode on page 8. For additional details, see
Connecting an external TAD (telephone
answering device) in Chapter 7 of the User’s
Guide.

Choose the correct Receive Mode
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber services (Voice Mail,
Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but telephone companies may have other names for this service such
as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Call, and Smart Ring. See Distinctive
Ring in Chapter 7 of the User’s Guide for instruction on setting up your machine using this feature.
Will you be using Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility that
Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls. See Voice Mail
in Chapter 7 of the User’s Guide for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode. See
the instructions below.
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode. See the
instructions below.
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the same line.
Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. See the instructions below.
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine when
choosing the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the phone line and must answer every call yourself. See
the instructions below.
For details, see Using receive modes in Chapter 6 of the User’s Guide.

first page of the transmission, the date and time it
is sent and an identification of the business or
other entity or other individual sending the
message and the telephone number of the
sending machines or such business, other entity

Before you begin
First you must configure the wireless network settings of your machine to communicate with your network access
point (router). After the machine is configured to communicate with your access point (router) computers on your
network will have access to the machine. To use the machine from these computers, you will need to install the
drivers and software. The following steps will guide you through the configuration and installation process.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the network access point (router) as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of
your documents.
• Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics,
you may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer or USB for the fastest
throughput speed.
• Although the Brother MFC-8690DW and MFC-8890DW can be used in a both wired and wireless network,
only one of the connection methods can be used at a time.
• If you have previously configured the wireless settings of the machine you must reset the network (LAN)
settings before you can configure the wireless settings again.
On your machine, press Menu. Press 7.

Confirm your network environment (Infrastructure Mode)
The following instructions will offer two methods for installing your Brother machine in a wireless network
environment. Both methods are for infrastructure mode, using a wireless router or access point that uses DHCP
to assign IP addresses. Choose a configuration method and proceed to the page indicated.
a
If your wireless router/access point does not support SecureEasySetup™, Wi-Fi Protected Setup or
AOSS™, write down the wireless network settings of your wireless access point/router.
IMPORTANT
If you do not know this information (Network Name, WEP key, WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key), LEAP or EAPFAST) you cannot continue the wireless setup. You should see the documentation provided with your
access point or wireless router, consult the router manufacturer, or your system administrator.
Item
Example
Communication mode: (infrastructure)
Infrastructure
Network name: (SSID, ESSID)
HELLO
Authentication method:

Record the current wireless network settings
12345678
Network key:
(Encryption key , WEP key 2, Passphrase)
1
WPA/WPA2-PSK is a Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key, which lets the Brother wireless machine associate with access points using TKIP or
AES encryption (WPA-Personal). WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP or AES) uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that is 8 or more characters in length, up to a
maximum of 63 characters.
2
The WEP key is for 64-bit encrypted networks or 128-bit encrypted networks and can contain both numbers and letters. If you do not know this
information you should see the documentation provided with your access point or wireless router. This key is a 64-bit or 128-bit value that must be
entered in an ASCII or HEXADECIMAL format.
For example:
64-bit ASCII:
Uses 5 text characters
e.g. “Hello” (this is case sensitive)
64-bit Hexadecimal:
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data
e.g. “71f2234aba”
128-bit ASCII:
Uses 13 text characters
e.g. “Wirelesscomms” (this is case sensitive)
128-bit Hexadecimal:
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data
e.g. “71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa3ba“
