To set up a wireless Brother printer, connect it to an online network and then install drivers for the printer onto the computer. Wireless printers work by connecting to the same network as an at-home computer. The printer is then able to receive jobs from any of the computers that are connected to the same network.
Wireless computers were once only found in workplaces, but with the development of less expensive inkjet printers, wireless integration occurs more frequently. Although different operating systems use their own terms to describe sections, both follow similar installation procedures. Use these instructions in order to set up a wireless Brother printer.

- Press Add a Printer
