Configuring your machine for a wireless
network
3
Overview
3
To connect your machine to your wireless network, you need to follow the steps in the Quick Setup Guide.
Configuration using the CD-ROM installer and a USB cable is a recommended way for Windows® users. By
using this method, you can easily connect your machine to your wireless network. Macintosh users should
choose their preferred configuration method from the choices covered in the Quick Setup Guide.
For additional wireless configuration methods please read this chapter for more details on how to configure
the wireless network settings. For information on TCP/IP settings, see How to change your machine’s
network settings (IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway) uu page 4.
Note
• To achieve optimum results with normal every day document printing, place the Brother machine as close
to the WLAN 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 1, or USB for the
fastest throughput speed.
• Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired 1 and wireless network, only one connection
method can be used at a time.
• Before configuring wireless settings, you will need to know your SSID and Network Key.

you wish to configure. (See Function table and default factory settings uu page 44.)
Please note that the machine is supplied with the BRAdmin Light utility, Web Based Management
(MFC-J5910DW only) or Remote Setup applications, which also can be used to configure many aspects of
the network. (See Other Management Utilities uu page 7.)

For the MFC-J825DW/J835DW/J5910DW and DCP-J925DW, if you connect the machine with an Ethernet
cable to your network, use the Wired LAN menu selections. If you connect the machine to a wireless
Ethernet network, use the WLAN menu selections.
BOOT Method
4
This selection controls how the machine obtains an IP address.
Auto mode
4
In this mode the machine will scan the network for a DHCP server. If it can find one, and if the DHCP server
is configured to allocate an IP address to the machine, then the IP address supplied by the DHCP server will
be used. If no DHCP server is available, then the machine will scan for a BOOTP server. If a BOOTP server
is available, and it is configured correctly, the machine will take its IP address from the BOOTP server. If a
BOOTP server is not available, the machine will scan for a RARP server. If a RARP server also does not
answer, the IP Address is set using the APIPA protocol. After the machine is initially powered ON, it may take
a few minutes for the machine to scan the network for a server.
Static mode
4
In this mode the machine’s IP address must be manually assigned. Once entered the IP address is locked to
the assigned address.
Note
If you do not want your print server configured via DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the
BOOT Method to Static so that the print server has a static IP address. This will prevent the print server
from trying to obtain an IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT Method, use the
machine’s control panel, BRAdmin Light utility, Web Based Management (MFC-J5910DW only) or
Remote Setup.

Control panel setup
IP Address
4
This field displays the current IP address of the machine. If you have chosen a BOOT Method of Static,
enter the IP address that you wish to assign to the machine (check with your network administrator for a
suitable IP address to use). If you have chosen a method other than Static, the machine will attempt to
determine its IP address using the DHCP or BOOTP protocols. The default IP address of your machine will
probably be incompatible with the IP address numbering scheme of your network. We recommend that you
contact your network administrator for a suitable IP address for the network the unit will be connected on.
Subnet Mask
4
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or BOOTP to
obtain the subnet mask, enter the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the subnet
mask to use.
Gateway
4
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or
BOOTP to obtain the gateway or router address, enter the address you wish to assign. If you do not have a
gateway or router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
Node Name
4
You can register the machine name on the Network. This name is often referred to as a NetBIOS name; it will
be the name that is registered by the WINS server on your network. Brother recommends the name
BRNxxxxxxxxxxxx for a wired network or BRWxxxxxxxxxxxx for a wireless network (where xxxxxxxxxxxx is
your machine’s Ethernet address) (up to 15 characters).
WINS Config
4
This selection controls how the machine obtains the IP address of the WINS server.

Control panel setup
Secondary WINS Server IP Address
4
This field specifies the IP address of the secondary WINS server. It is used as a backup to the Primary WINS
server address. If the Primary server is unavailable, the machine can still register itself with a secondary
server. If set to a non-zero value, the machine will contact this server to register its name with the Windows®
Internet Name Service. If you have a primary WINS server, but no secondary WINS server, simply leave this
field blank.

4
4
Primary DNS Server IP Address
4
This field specifies the IP address of the primary DNS (Domain Name System) server.
Secondary DNS Server IP Address
4
This field specifies the IP address of the secondary DNS server. It is used as a backup to the Primary DNS
server address. If the Primary server is unavailable, the machine will contact the Secondary DNS server.
APIPA
4
The setting of On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a Link-Local IP address in the range
(169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the
BOOT Method you have set (see BOOT Method uu page 34). Choosing Off means the IP address doesn’t
change, when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the BOOT Method you have set.
IPv6 (MFC-J5910DW only)
4
This machine is compatible with IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol. If you want to use the IPv6
protocol, choose On. The default setting for IPv6 is Off. For more information on the IPv6 protocol, visit
http://solutions.brother.com/.
Note
• If you set IPv6 to On, use the On/Off button to turn the machine off and back on to enable this protocol.
• After you choose IPv6 On, this setting will be applied to both the wired and wireless LAN interface.

Internet fax Overview
6
Internet faxing (IFAX) allows you to send and receive fax documents using the Internet as the transport
mechanism. Documents are transmitted in E-mail messages as attached TIFF-F files. This means that
computers are also able to receive and send documents, providing that the computer has as an application
that can generate and view TIFF-F files, you can use any TIFF-F viewer application. Any documents sent via
the machine will automatically be converted into a TIFF-F format. If you wish to send and receive messages
to and from your machine, your mail application on the computer must be able to support the MIME format.

Important information on Internet fax
6
Internet fax communication on a LAN system is basically the same as communication via E-mail; however, it
is different from fax communication using standard phone lines. The following is important information for
using Internet fax:
 Factors such as the receiver’s location, structure of the LAN system, and how busy the network (such as
the Internet) is, may cause the system to take a long time to send back an error mail (normally 20 sec. to
30 sec.).
 In the case of transmission through the Internet, due to its low level of security, we recommend that you
use standard phone lines to send confidential documents.
 If the receiver’s mail system is not compatible with the MIME format, you cannot transmit a document to
the receiver. Depending on the receiver’s server, there may be some cases in which the error mail will not
be sent back.
 If the size of a document’s image data is too large, there is a possibility of unsuccessful transmission.
 You cannot change the font or character size of Internet mail that you receive.
62

Internet fax (MFC-J5910DW only)
Note
Some E-mail servers do not allow you to send large E-mail documents (the System Administrator will often
place a limit on the maximum E-mail size). With this function enabled, the machine will display
Out of Memory when trying to send E-mail documents over 1 Mbyte in size. The document will not be
sent and an error report will be printed. The document you are sending should be separated into smaller
documents that will be accepted by the mail server. (For your information, a 42 page document based on
the ITU-T Test Chart #1 test chart is approximately 1 Mbyte in size.)
Receiving E-mail or Internet fax
6
Before receiving an Internet fax
6
To receive the Internet fax, you can configure following items from the control panel, Web Based
Management or Remote Setup:
6
 Auto Polling (if needed)
 Poll Frequency (if needed)
 Header (if needed)
 Delete Error Mail (if needed)
 Notification (if needed) (For more information, see TX Verification Mail uu page 68)
How to receive an Internet fax
6
There are 2 ways you can receive E-mail messages:
 POP3 receiving at regular intervals
 POP3 receiving (manually initiated)
Using POP3 receiving the machine must poll the E-mail server to receive the data. This polling can occur at
set intervals (for example, you can configure the machine to poll the E-mail server at 10 minute intervals) or
you can manually poll the server by pressing the SCAN + Color Start/Colour Start keys.
If your machine starts to receive E-mail data, the LCD panel will reflect this activity. For example, you will see
Receiving on the LCD panel followed by xx E-mail(s). If you press the SCAN +
Color Start/Colour Start keys to manually poll the E-mail server for E-mail data and there are no mail
documents waiting to be printed, the machine will display No Mail on the LCD panel for two seconds.
Note
• If your machine is out of paper when receiving data, the received data will be held in the machine’s
memory. This data will be printed automatically after paper is re-inserted into the machine.
• If the received mail is not in a plain text format or an attached file is not in the TIFF-F format, the following
error message will be printed: “ATTACHED FILE FORMAT NOT SUPPORTED”. If the received mail is
too large, the following error message will be printed: “E-MAIL FILE TOO LARGE”. If Delete POP Receive
Error Mail is ON (default) then the error mail is automatically deleted from the E-mail server.

TX Verification Mail
6
Transmission Verification Mail supports two separate functions. Verification Mail for sending allows you to
request notification from the receiving station that the Internet Fax or E-mail was received and processed.
Verification Mail for receiving allows you to transmit a default report back to the sending station after
successfully receiving and processing an Internet Fax or E-mail.
To use this feature you must set the Notification option within the Setup Mail RX and

68
Internet fax (MFC-J5910DW only)
Setup Mail TX
6
You can set the Notification option in the Setup Mail TX option to either On or Off. When switched
to On an additional field of information is sent with the image data. This field is named “MDN”.
MDN (Message Disposition Notification):
This field requests the status of the Internet Fax/E-mail message after delivery through the SMTP (Simple
Mail Transfer Protocol) transport system. Once the message has arrived at the receiver this data is used
when the machine or user reads or prints the received Internet Fax or E-mail. For example, if the message is
opened for reading or is printed the receiver sends back a notification to the original sending machine or user.
The receiver must support the MDN field in order to be able to send a notification report, otherwise the request
will be ignored.
Setup Mail RX
6
There are three possible settings for this option On, MDN or Off.
6
Receive Notification “On”
When switched to “On” a fixed message is sent back to the sender to indicate successful reception and
processing of the message. These fixed messages depend on the operation requested by the sender.
Report messages consist of:
SUCCESS: Received From <Mail Address>
Receive Notification “MDN”
When switched to “MDN” a report as described above is sent back to the sender if the originating station sent
the “MDN” field to request confirmation.
Receive Notification “Off”
Off switches all forms of receive notification Off, no message are sent back to the sender regardless of the
request.
Note
To receive the TX verification mail properly, you must configure the following settings.
• Sender
• Switch Notification in the Setup Mail TX to on.
• Switch Header in the Setup Mail RX to All or Subject+From+To.
• Receiver
• Switch Notification in the Setup Mail RX to on.
Error mail
6
If there is a mail delivery error while sending an Internet fax, the mail server will send an error message back
to the machine and the error message will be printed. If there is an error while receiving mail, an error
message will be printed (Example: “The message being sent to the machine was not in a TIFF-F format.”).
To receive the error mail properly, you must switch Header in the Setup Mail RX to All or Subject+From+To.
