When you connect your computer to the router, is it via wifi or ethernet?

This is a link to two versions of the manual for your printer; simple version and more detailed. I suggest you download both and have a good read.

Also along the bottom of the display (central) are four links including one to "network users guide". Click on that and download/read it. That will take you through steps required to connect the printer (which has no ethernet connection) to your router. Or go to that guide via the link below.

Routers by default usually arrive with wifi disabled; and so you may have to go into the setup area on the router to enable wifi.

Did the printer connect OK with your previous router?

This is a LTE modem with VoIP phone connection.
Have you followed the instructions in the manual??

I checked the manual and the first that appears is a diagram of router.


It doesn't look like my MFC-J415

What is DHCP?


Thanks for your interest in helping me.

You posted a different model number in your initial post... What make and which model router do you have?

And if I google for the model in post #2 above... it comes up as Brother all in one printer?

"What is DHCP?"
The portion of your router that sets the IP addresses of the connected devices on your home network (though it may only be your computer, it may include your printer if networked, your tablet, cell phone, as well as other computers and devices.
Googling shows:
"Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client/server protocol that automatically provides an Internet Protocol (IP) host with its IP address and other related configuration information such as the subnet mask and default gateway."

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
