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.
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.
Although the Brother MFC-790CW/MFC-990CW can be used in a both wired and wireless network, only one of
the connection methods can be used at a time.
Important
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 a or b to display Network and press Network.
Press a or b to display Factory Reset, and then press Factory Reset.
Press Yes to accept. Hold down Yes for 2 seconds to confirm.
Note
The following instructions are for infrastructure mode.
To set up 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.

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 access point or wireless router in the
area below.
Important
If you do not know this information (Network Name, WEP key or WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)),
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.
SSID (Service Set ID or Network name)
Authentication (Open System or Shared Key)/Encryption Type (None or WEP)
WEP Key (if needed) 1
WPA/WPA2-PSK Encryption type (TKIP or AES) (if needed) 2
WPA/WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) (if needed) 2
1
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 64bit or 128-bit value that must be entered in an ASCII or HEXADECIMAL format.
For example:
64-bit ASCII:
64-bit Hexadecimal:
128-bit ASCII:
128-bit Hexadecimal:
2
Uses 5 text characters e.g. “Hello” (this is case sensitive)
Uses 10 digits of hexadecimal data e.g. “71f2234aba”
Uses 13 text characters e.g.
“Wirelesscomms” (this is case sensitive)
Uses 26 digits of hexadecimal data e.g.
“71f2234ab56cd709e5412aa3ba”
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.
