• We recommend that you save the original packaging.
• If for any reason you must ship your machine, carefully repack the machine in the original packaging to avoid
any damage during transit. The machine should be adequately insured with the carrier. For how to repack
the machine, see Packing and shipping the machine in the User's Guide.
• Illustrations in this Quick Setup Guide are based on the HL-5470DW.
• The interface cable is not a standard accessory. Buy the appropriate interface cable for the connection you
want to use (USB or Network).

Before you begin
First you must configure the wireless network settings of your machine to communicate with your wireless access
point/router. After the machine is configured to communicate with your wireless access point/router, computers
and mobile devices on your network will have access to the machine. To use the machine from a computer, you
will need to install the printer driver. The following steps will guide you through the configuration and installation
process.
Important
• If you are going to connect the machine to your network, we recommend that you contact your system
administrator prior to installation. You must know your wireless network settings before you proceed with this
installation.
• 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.
1. On your machine, press a or b to choose Network, and press OK.
2. Press a or b to choose Network Reset, and press OK.
3. When Reboot OK? appears, press a to choose Yes for reboot.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close to
the wireless 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 HL-5470DW(T) and HL-6180DW(T) can be used in both a wired and wireless network,
only one of the connection methods can be used at a time.
• If you use your machine in an IEEE 802.1x supported wireless network, see Using IEEE 802.1x
authentication in the Network User's Guide.

Setup using the Installer CD-ROM and temporarily using a USB cable (Windows® only)
It is recommended that you use a PC wirelessly connected to your network for this method.
Important
• You need to temporarily use a USB cable during configuration (cable not included).
• If you are using Windows® XP, or using a network cable to connect your computer with your wireless
access point/router, you need to know the SSID and Network Key of your wireless access point/router
before you proceed. Please write down your wireless network settings in the area below.
• Please do not contact Brother Customer Service for assistance without the wireless security
information. We cannot assist you in locating your network security settings.

Troubleshooting
Important
Please do not contact Brother Customer Service for assistance without the wireless security information. We
cannot assist you in locating your network security settings.
How can I find the wireless settings (Network Name (SSID) and Network Key)
1. You should see the documentation provided with your wireless access point/router.
2. The initial network name could be the manufacturer’s name or the model name.
3. If you do not know the security information, please consult the router manufacturer, your system
administrator or internet provider.
* The Network Key may also be described as the Password, Security Key or Encryption Key.
* If the wireless access point/router is set to not broadcast the SSID, the SSID will not automatically be detected.
You will have to manually enter the SSID name. See Configuring your machine when the SSID is not broadcast
in the Network User's Guide.
