No, the MFC290C does not include wireless.

 

The Brother models that include wireless capability end with a "W", like the

MFC-290CW.

can it be alter to print wireless
Technician: Michael Hannigan, Technician replied 8 years ago
Non without an external wireless print server device. And that would cost quite a bit more than just buying one of their newest built-in wireless models like the MFC-495CW that I linked to above, which is only $89 at that link.
