10/4/2023 11:53:31 AM
Setting up the Brother HL-2280DW wireless printer involves a few steps to connect it to your Wi-Fi network. Here's everything you need to know to get it up and running:

Before you begin:

1. Make sure you have your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password handy.

2. Ensure that your printer is within the range of your Wi-Fi network.

Wireless Setup Steps:

1. Power On the Printer:

- Plug in the printer and turn it on.

2. Network Settings:

- On the printer's control panel, press the "Menu" button.

- Use the arrow keys to navigate to "Network" and press "OK."

3. Wireless Setup Wizard:

- Navigate to "WLAN" and select "Setup Wizard" or "WLAN Setup."

- The printer will search for available networks. When it displays your network, select it and press "OK."

4. Enter Wi-Fi Password:

- If your network is password-protected, enter the Wi-Fi password using the control panel keypad.

- Use the arrow keys to select the characters, and press "OK" after each character. Make sure to enter the correct case (uppercase/lowercase) for letters.

- After entering the password, press "OK" to confirm.

5. Connection Confirmation:

- Once the printer connects to your Wi-Fi network, it will display a message confirming the connection. Press "OK."

6. Network Configuration Report:

- It's a good idea to print a network configuration report for reference. Navigate to "Print Reports" and select "Network Configuration" or a similar option.

7. Install Printer Drivers:

- If you haven't already installed the printer drivers on your computer, you can do so from the Brother website. Go to the Brother support website, search for your printer model, and download the appropriate drivers for your operating system.

8. Connect Your Computer to the Printer:

- After installing the drivers, your computer should detect the printer on the network.

- You may need to select the Brother HL-2280DW printer as your default printer.

9. Print a Test Page:

- To ensure that the printer is working correctly, try printing a test page from your computer.

10. Configure Printer Settings (Optional):

- You can access and configure various printer settings through the Brother printer software on your computer.

That's it! Your Brother hl-2280dw wireless setup printer should now be connected to your Wi-Fi network and ready for use. Make sure to keep the printer within the Wi-Fi range to maintain a stable connection.
