WiFi Brother printer WiFi connection


Recommended Posts

Windows 10

I used to be able to scan "on the fly" with the Brother scanner printer MFC-J98DW. I could go through several scans standing at the printer without having to interact with the PC. Now, I can only manually scan from the printer "renegotiating" with the software after every scan. When I try scanning to file from printer, I'm now informed that my firewall may be blocking access. Again, I can put a document on the scanner, walk back to the desktop, fore up the utility and complete the scan. PC will send instructions to printer and I can save to file but I cannot conduct the operation when initiated by the printer. A pain! Can someone help with possible settings I may try?

Hello @BostonBerry

Let me get the following logs please.


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Thank you
