Wireless Printer Question

Posted by jasdip (My Page) on

We have a Brother all-in-one wireless printer that works great.

But when I scan something, it sends the document to dh's computer instead of mine. He then has to save it and email it to me.

How do I get it to go to mine, or at least choose which PC to send it?

Never mind. I uninstalled and re-installed it again. It didn't recognize my laptop initially. It only worked when hubs' computer was on, which was a pia.

RE: Wireless Printer Question

I have the same 3 in 1 printer.
When you scan, it asks the destination, select File and then hit the button with the right arrow - this displays a list of computers that are connected to your WLAN.
Your DH's name is probably the first on on the list, and yours the second. Down arrow to your computer name and then hit OK.
