It’s no secret that your Brother MFC 9340CDW All-in-One color machine has many wonderfully modern features such as the ability to copy, print, fax, and scan documents.

Another great feature is its ability to connect to WiFi. Wireless use of the machine can be very useful and time-saving especially to those looking to work remotely without being hassled by a cord or cable.

That means you can sit anywhere in the room and print brilliant quality documents, as long as you using premium Brother TN-221/225 toner cartridges. In order to use this coveted wireless feature, all you need to do is complete wireless setup using your control panel.

Before connecting to WiFi, make sure you have your Network Name (SSID/ESSID) and Network Key (Password/Security Key) memorized or written down so setting up wireless connection can be as painless as possible.

 

How to connect your Brother MFC 9340CDW to WiFi:

 

1. Press WiFi icon.

This icon should appear on the upper right hand corner of your touch screen. If you have this icon, press it and move to step 6.

If you don’t have this button, skip this step and move on to step 2.

2. Press Settings icon.

This is the tool icon on the upper right hand corner of your touch screen.

3. Click “All Settings”.

4. Choose “Network”.

5. Choose “WLAN”.

6. Press “Setup Wizard”

7. Press “Yes” when “Enable WLAN?” is displayed on the touch screen.

8. Choose Network Name (SSID).

Your machine will display a list of available network names in your area. If your network name is not displaying, check your wireless router/ access point to see if it is turned on and connected. If so, you may need to move your machine closer to the wireless router/ access point.

9. You now have the following options:

a. Enter Network Key. Enter the Network Key (Security Key/Password) of your wireless router/access point using the touch screen. Once you have entered your Network Key, press “OK” and then press “Yes” to apply the settings. Move to step 10.

b. No Network Key needed. If your Network Name is not encrypted with a password, you may skip this step and go to step 10.

c. WPS route. If your wireless router/ access point supports the WPS, press “Yes” when the machine asks if you would like to WPS. When the machine instructs you to begin WPS, press the WPS button on your wireless router/ access point. Then press “Next” using the touch screen. 

10. Connect to WiFi.

Give your machine some time as it attempts to make connection with your wireless router/ access point. Once connection is complete, you should see a small graphic of a 4-level wireless strength indicator

 

You have now connected your Brother MFC 9340CDW to WiFi. Your machine will notify you on the touch screen that connection has been successful and send you a printout of a WLAN report. If connection fails, retrace your steps and diagnose where the issue may have occurred.
