Wireless setup is requesting a WPS PIN to complete the setup

While attempting to set up the Brother machine on a wireless network, you may see a screen requesting a WPS PIN to complete the setup. This typically occurs if Wi-Fi Direct is enabled on your machine and you attempt to add a Wi-Fi Direct connection using Printers and Scanners in Windows. We recommend using the Wireless Setup Wizard or the Control Panel method to configure the wireless connection instead.

 

NOTE: The screens may differ depending on your operating system and your Brother machine.
