I have a Brother J4750 Wireless printer and an Netgear N600

Customer Question

I have a Brother J4750 Wireless printer and an Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band router. The communication between the two is not working so I cannot print wirelessly. I tried another router and it worked but there was no other advantage to the new router
so I returned it. I called Netgear and they wanted to charge me a good sum to fix the problem. How can I get the two devices to talk to each other>

Hi Viet:I've been investigating further. Actually the WLAN report is showing the that the connection is OK
(WPA at the hardware address 54:35:30:a9:a0:df on Network Channel 8)The problem is that I cannot print from my windows 8 laptop.I attach here the Network Configuration Report. Do you see anything that indicates why the printer remains offline and not ready in its wireless mode?Thanks, Tim

Thank you. Then the issue is with the communicating settings on the laptop and/or on the router.
Can I connect remotely to your laptop, so I can fix the issue directly on your laptop together with you?
