–: Setup for Wired Network Brother printer fails –
Problem: Brother printer is not detected by Brother setup disk.
-ENV: Windows 8.1, SOHO Mk III, 8.1.0 firmware
-Computer is hooked up to the SOHO port 1 LAN, vlan routing checked
-SOHO is working normally for internet connections.
-Printer is hooked to port 2, vlan routing checked, DHCP reservation set for the printer’s static address, port 2=Access
-I can ping the printer’s static address from the Windows 8.1 command line.
-I can tracert the printer’s static address from the command line.
-I can ping the printer’s static address from the SOHO administration interface.
-Brother setup software can’t detect the printer even when the static IP is entered.
Are these confusing symptoms caused by hooking up the printer to a VLAN port? In that case, should I hook the printer to the LAN port and the computer to port 2 VLAN?
