Brother HL-L2340DW Wireless Printer Setup Router Network

  1. In a smaller network of two or three computers, we recommend the Peer-to-Peer printing method, as it is easier to configure than the Network Shared printing method.
  2. Each computer must use the TCP/IP protocol.
  3. The Brother machine needs an appropriate IP address configuration.
If you are using a router, the Gateway address must be configured on the computers and the Brother machine.

Network Shared Printing

In a Network Shared environment, each computer sends data via a centrally controlled computer. This type of computer is often called a "Server" or a "Print Server". Its job is to control all print jobs.
  1. Client Computer
  2. Centrally controlled computer, also known as the "Server" or "Print Server"
  3. Ethernet Cable, USB, or Parallel (where available)
  4. Network Machine (your machine)
In a larger network, we recommend a Network Shared Printing environment.The "Server" or the "Print Server" must use the TCP/IP protocol. The Brother HL-L2340DW needs to have an appropriate IP address configuration, unless it is connected via the USB or parallel interface at the server.

Configuring Brother Brother HL-L2340DW Wireless Setup Network

Before attempting to configure a wireless network, confirm the following:To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close to the wireless LAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between the two devices and interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your documents.

Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics, you may want to consider selecting wired Ethernet for faster data transfer, or USB for the fastest throughput speed.

Although the Brother HL L2340DW can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one connection method can be used at a time. However, a wireless network connection and Wi-Fi Direct connection, or a wired network connection (supported models only) and Wi-Fi Direct connection can be used at the same time.Before configuring wireless settings, you must know your Network name (SSID) and Network Key.
