10/4/2023 11:55:48 AM
To connect a Brother HL-5370DW printer to a wireless network, you can follow these general steps. Please note that the exact steps may vary slightly depending on your specific printer model and the version of the printer's software, but these instructions should give you a good starting point:

1. Gather Information:

- Make sure you have the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password (security key) on hand. You'll need this information to connect the printer to your network.

2. Prepare the Printer:

- Turn on your Brother HL-5370DW printer and ensure it is in a ready state.

3. Access the Printer's Control Panel:

- On the printer's control panel, press the "Menu" button to access the main menu.

4. Navigate the Menu:

- Use the navigation buttons (up, down, left, right) to scroll through the menu and locate the "Network" or "Network Configuration" option. Press the "OK" button to select it.

5. Select "WLAN" or "Wireless":

- Within the Network or Network Configuration menu, select the "WLAN" or "Wireless" option and press "OK."

6. Enable Wireless:

- Select "Setup Wizard" or a similar option to start the wireless setup process. Follow the on-screen instructions to enable the wireless feature.

7. Choose Your Network:

- Your printer will scan for available wireless networks. When it finds your network, select it and press "OK."

8. Enter the Network Password:

- If your wireless network is secured, you'll need to enter the network password (security key). Use the printer's keypad to input the password and confirm it. This step may also involve selecting the type of encryption (e.g., WEP, WPA, WPA2).

9. Confirm Settings:

- Once you've entered the password and any other required information, review the settings for accuracy.

10. Save and Exit:

- If everything is correct, select "Yes" or "OK" to save the settings and exit the setup menu.

11. Print a Network Configuration Report:

- It's a good idea to print a network configuration report to confirm that the printer has successfully connected to your wireless network. This report will provide information about the printer's network settings, including its IP address.

12. Test the Connection:

- Try printing a test page or document wirelessly to ensure that the connection is working correctly.

That's it! Your Brother HL-5370DW should now be connected to your wireless network, allowing you to print wirelessly from your computer or other devices. If you encounter any issues during the setup process, consult the printer's user manual or Brother's support resources for troubleshooting assistance.
