have gone round and round. Printer installed fine with usb connection going through routine found via web search. But entirely unable after dozens of pages to find a way to install this printer so it works wirelessly. Cannot find the ip address. The interface on the printer has only 4 buttons and seems to just want to search for a connection, no other menu options. After searching 2-3 minutes it prints out an error page at the bottom of which it says:


<Configuration>
Network Name (SSID)                 SETUP
Hardware Address (MAC)             28:56:5a:67:49:2b
Communication Mode

That was submitted by error and the long post I wrote with all details then got wiped out!!!!! Here we go again:

<Configuration>
Network Name (SSID)          SETUP
Hardware Address (MAC)      28:56:5a:67:49:2b
Communication Mode           Ad-hoc
Authentication Type             Open System
Encryption                          None
Network Channel                 -

On back of Router (fiber optic internet source)
Network Name (SSID)
2.4Ghz ARRIS-EC92
5GHz   ARRIS-EC92-5G

Then many other names followed by numbers:
Preshared Key
Security Mode
WPS Pin
SN:
CMAC:
WAN MAC:

Would be most grateful if someone could help me get this set up. Have never had much luck with Brother Printers and LL unless use USB, but since this is a long-term setup would like to get it running wirelessly.

Hello,
on your router press the WPS button.
