A WPS PIN is required to complete the wireless setup (Windows)

Screen requesting a WPS PIN to complete the setup

(This screen may differ depending on your operating system and your Brother machine.)

 

 

If you see a screen requesting a WPS PIN when trying to configure your Brother machine's wireless connection, we recommend using the Wireless Setup Wizard or the Control Panel setup method instead. This screen may appear if Wi-Fi Direct is enabled on your machine and you try to add a Wi-Fi Direct connection using Printers and Scanners in Windows.

 

Do the following:

 

  1. If the WPS PIN request screen is still open on your computer, click Cancel.
  2. Reset the machine back to the factory settings.
  3. Reconnect the machine to the wireless network using one of the recommended wireless network setup methods. Click here for more information.
