This cause my whole wireless net work down. I was able to connect my laptop, cell phone but I am having problem connecting brothers printer. Can any one give me the step by step instruction to connect printer to my wireless network

    Navigate to something that says "show connected devices" and check out what IP is associated with the printer. Highlight it and copy it. Then somewhere else are settings (it may be different location depending on the router) that will set your associate the MAC address of the printer (also found on the connected devices page) to whatever IP you want for it. Try that's the best I can explain it without seeing for myself.
