Has anyone else successfully connected their Brother DCP-L2540DW printer to tmobile Home WiFi? I am able to connect to the correct SSID, but when I run the printer’s setup software, it cannot find the printer on the network. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I was able to connect an older Brother printer to the gateway with no problems.

 

However, it might have been successful because I had dumbed down the 2.4GHz Transmission Mode to “n/g” from the default “Auto (ax/g)” so an older laptop could connect.

Okay, I was successful using the Brother printer setup software, but instead of selecting the option to set up via wireless network connection, I had to connect my computer to the printer via USB cable. After setting it up that way, I was able to remove the USB cable, and now the printer is visible.

I had problems because I had increased the security level of the WPA. When I dumbed that back down then connecting was fine. Also, you need to connect to the 2.4 GHz network.
