This article will take you through the steps to connect the Brother QL-820NWB label printer to the wifi network.

How to connect the Brother QL-820NWB to the wifi network.

  • Turn the printer on, and follow the on-screen prompts to set the language, time and date.

  • Press the [Menu] button and the [▼] button to select the [WLAN] menu, and then press the [OK] button.

  • Press the [▼] button to select WLAN On/Off, and press the [OK] button.

  • Use the [▲] and [▼] buttons to select [On] and press the [OK] button to enable.

  • Once enabled, press the [↩] button and within the [WLAN] menu select WLAN > Infra Manual Setting and press the [OK] button.

  • The printer should then search for available Wi-Fi networks. Use the [▲] and [▼] buttons, select your preferred WiFi network and then press the [OK] button.

  • Enter your password using the [▲] and [▼] buttons to select the correct characters.

    *Please note, you can select the [Menu] button to change the keyboard to input symbols, numbers, uppercase, and lowercase characters.

  • The screen should then display 'Connected!' to confirm this was successful, press the [↩] button to make your way back to the main screen and confirm the WiFi symbol shows solid in the top right corner of the screen.

Please note:

  • Your printer and iPad must be on the same network, or at least on two networks that have protocols set up that allow them to communicate with one another. If not, SwipedOn will not be able to connect to the printer.

  • If you intend to print via Bluetooth (QL-820NWB only), then you do not have to connect your printer to a WiFi network.
