I got a Brother printer a few years back on the recommendation of a friend, and it's been a wonderful printer. Fast and trouble-free. As someone who doesn't print very often, it's important to have it be zero effort and the Brother is that.
But it was advertised as having wifi, but when I tried to get it to work, I couldn't make heads or tails of the docs. And the consensus among users on Amazon is that it's unusable.
Thinking about getting a new printer for mom for Christmas, she really needs one. I was just going to order her the same printer I have. But before actually doing it, I wanted to find out if anyone has gotten wifi and laser printers to work in an easy-to-set-up way.
Ted, I just bought that printer for my mom. It arrives on Friday. :-)
I'm a little surprised. Think I have the same brother printer that you do (Brother HL-4070CDW) and it's been working find on my WAP network. The printer exposes a web interface -- perhaps I first hooked it up as a wired node on my network and used that to configure the wireless settings? I don't remember -- but once I got it set up, it's been a trouble-free member of my LAN. Can you say what your problems have been setting it up ...
