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.

See Choose the correct Receive
Mode on page 8. For additional details, see
Connecting an external TAD (telephone

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 the Basic 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 the Basic 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 telephone line and must answer every call yourself.
See the instructions below.
For details, see Using receive modes in the Basic User’s Guide.

message via a telephone fax machine unless
such messages clearly contain, in a margin at the
top or bottom of each transmitted page, or on the
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
or individual. To program this information into
your machine, see Set the date and
time on page 9 and Set your Station
ID on page 10.

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.
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 Menu. Press 6.
2. Press 0 to choose Network Reset.
3. Press 1 twice for Yes to accept the change.
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-7860DW can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one of the
connection methods can be used at a time.
