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
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 print
server back to its factory default settings.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Make sure that the front cover is closed and the power cord is plugged in.
3. Hold down Go as you turn on the power switch. Keep Go pressed down until all the LEDs light up
and then Ready LED turns off.
4. Release Go. Make sure that all the LEDs turn off.
5. Press Go six times. Make sure that all the LEDs light up to indicate the print server has been reset
to its factory default settings. The machine will restart.
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 HL-2270DW and HL-2275DW can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only
one of the connection methods can be used at a time.
• The screens are based on HL-2270DW / HL-2275DW.

To setup your machine in any other wireless environment, you can find instructions in the Network User’s
Guide.
a
If your WLAN access point/router does not support Wi-Fi Protected Setup or AOSS™, write down
the wireless network settings of your WLAN access point/router.
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.
SSID (Network Name)
Network Key (Security Key/Encryption Key)
For example:
SSID (Network Name)

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 SSID and Network Key
1) You should see the documentation provided with your WLAN 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.
WLAN report
Press Go five times within four seconds. The machine prints the WLAN report.
If the WLAN report that printed shows that the connection failed, check the error code on the printed report and
refer to the following instructions.
Error code
Recommended Solutions
The wireless setting is not activated, turn the wireless setting to ON.
TS-01
- If a LAN cable is connected to your machine, disconnect it and turn the wireless setting of
your machine to ON.
Hold down Go for 10 seconds. Release Go when the machine prints a Network
Configuration page that indicates the current network settings.
The WLAN access point/router cannot be detected.
1. Check the following 4 points.
TS-02
- Make sure that the WLAN access point/router is powered on.
- Move your machine to an obstruction-free area, or closer to the WLAN access
point/router.
- Temporarily place your machine within about one meter (3.3 feet) from the WLAN
access point when you are configuring the wireless settings.
- If your WLAN access point/router is using MAC address filtering, confirm the MAC
address of the Brother machine is allowed in the filter.
2. If you manually entered the SSID and security information (SSID/authentication
method/encryption method/Network Key) the information may be incorrect.
Reconfirm the SSID and security information and reenter the correct information as
necessary.
See How can I find the wireless settings SSID and Network Key on page 28 to confirm.

Recommended Solutions
The Authentication/Encryption methods used by the selected WLAN access point/router are
not supported by your machine.
For infrastructure mode, change the authentication and encryption methods of the WLAN
access point/router. Your machine supports the following authentication methods WPA,
WPA2, OPEN and Shared key. WPA supports TKIP or AES encryption methods. WPA2
supports AES for the encryption method. OPEN and Shared key correspond to WEP
encryption.
If your problem is not solved the SSID or network settings you entered may be incorrect.
Reconfirm the wireless network settings.

For Wireless Network Users
Error code
Recommended Solutions
The machine cannot detect a WLAN access point/router that has WPS or AOSS™ enabled.
If you would like to configure your wireless settings using WPS or AOSS™, you must operate
both your machine and the WLAN access point/router.
Confirm your WLAN access point/router supports WPS or AOSS™ and try starting again.
TS-07
If you do not know how to operate your WLAN access point/router using WPS or AOSS™,
See the documentation provided with your WLAN access point/router, ask the manufacturer
of your WLAN access point/router or ask your network administrator.
Two or more WLAN access points that have WPS or AOSS™ enabled are detected.
TS-08
30
- Confirm that only one WLAN access point/router within range has the WPS or AOSS™
method active and try again.
- Try starting again after a few minutes in order to avoid interference from other access
points.
