PABX (PBX) and TRANSFER
The machine is initially set to Normal, which lets the
machine connect to a standard PSTN (Public
Switched Telephone Network) line. However, many
offices use a central telephone system or Private
Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX). Your machine
can be connected to most types of PABX (PBX). The
machine’s recall feature supports timed break recall
only (TBR). TBR will work with most PABX (PBX)
systems allowing you to gain access to an outside
line, or transfer calls to another extension. The
feature works when Tel/R is pressed.
Note
You can program a Tel/R key press as part of a
number stored in a One-Touch or Speed-Dial
location. When programming the One-Touch or
Speed-Dial number (Menu, 2, 3, 1 or 2, 3, 2) press
Tel/R first (the screen displays “!”), then enter the
telephone number. If you do this, you do not need
to press Tel/R each time before you dial using a
One-Touch or Speed-Dial location. (See “Storing
numbers” in Chapter 8 of the User’s Guide.)
However, if PBX is not selected in the Phone Line
Type setting, you cannot use the One-Touch or
Speed-Dial number that Tel/R press is
programmed into.

The SecureEasySetup™ software allows you to
configure the wireless network easier than
configuring it manually. By pushing a button on the
wireless router or access point, you can complete
setup and secure the wireless network. Your router or
access point must also support SecureEasySetup™.
See the user’s guide for your wireless LAN router or

machine for a wireless network. If your wireless router
or access point does not support SecureEasySetup™
go to the next page for installation instructions.

To achieve optimum results with normal every day
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.
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 computers on
your network will have access to the machine. To use
the machine from these computers, you will need to
install the MFL-Pro Software Suite. The following
steps will guide you through the configuration and
installation process.

Write down the wireless network settings of
your access point or wireless router.
SSID (Service Set ID or Network name)
_________________________
WEP Key (if needed)
_________________________
WPA/WPA2-PSK (if needed)
_________________________
The WEP key is for 64bit 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”

These instructions will install your Brother machine in
a typical small office or home wireless network
environment in infrastructure mode, using a wireless

If you want to setup your machine in any other
wireless environment you can find instructions in the
Network User’s Guide on the CD-ROM.
You can view the Network User’s Guide by following
the instructions below.
1 Turn on your PC. Insert the Brother CD-ROM

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”
WPA-PSK enables a Protected Access Preshared key that allows the Brother wireless
machine to associate with access points using
TKIP and AES encryption. WPA-PSK uses a
Pre-Shared Key that is more than 7 and less
than 64 characters in length.

Using the SecureEasySetup™ software to configure your machine for a
wireless network
The SecureEasySetup™ software allows you to
configure the wireless network easier than
configuring it manually. By pushing a button on the
wireless router or access point, you can complete
setup and secure the wireless network. Your router or
access point must also support SecureEasySetup™.
See the user’s guide for your wireless LAN router or
access point for instructions to configure your
machine for a wireless network. If your wireless router
or access point does not support SecureEasySetup™
go to the next page for installation instructions.

Plug in the power cord and turn on the
machine.
Improper Setup
If you have previously configured the wireless
settings of the machine you must reset the

Using the Setup Wizard from the control panel LAN menu for wireless
network configuration
Important
Make sure that you have finished the
instructions from step 1 Setting Up the
Machine on page 4 to 11.
These instructions will install your Brother machine in
a typical small office or home wireless network
environment in infrastructure mode, using a wireless
router or access point that uses DHCP to assign IP
addresses.
If you want to setup your machine in any other
wireless environment you can find instructions in the
Network User’s Guide on the CD-ROM.
You can view the Network User’s Guide by following
the instructions below.
1 Turn on your Macintosh®. Insert the Brother
CD-ROM labeled Macintosh® into your CD-ROM
drive.
2 Double-click Documentation.
3 Double-click your language folder.
4 Double-click the Network User’s Guide.pdf.
Note
If the window does not appear, use Windows®
Explorer to run the setup.exe program from the
root directory of the Brother CD-ROM.
To achieve optimum results with normal every day
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.
Macintosh®
Wireless
Network
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 computers on
your network will have access to the machine. To use
the machine from these computers, you will need to
install the MFL-Pro Software Suite. The following
steps will guide you through the configuration and
installation process.
44
1
Write down the wireless network settings of
your access point or wireless router.
SSID (Service Set ID or Network name)
_________________________
WEP Key (if needed)
_________________________
WPA/WPA2-PSK (if needed)
_________________________
The WEP key is for 64bit 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”
WPA-PSK enables a Protected Access Preshared key that allows the Brother wireless
machine to associate with access points using
TKIP and AES encryption. WPA-PSK uses a
Pre-Shared Key that is more than 7 and less
than 64 characters in length.
See Chapter 3 of the Network User’s Guide for
more details.
