Printing

< Back

Printing is disabled by default.

To Enable printing, please follow the following steps:

  1. Connect your Brother Label Printer to your Local Area Network (LAN)
    1. Connect a supported printer ( see here for
      list of supported printers ) to your local Ethernet or Wi-Fi network
      Note this step is very important as it is the one that makes the printer available
      to the Menelic Visitor Mobile App.
      – if your printer support wired Ethernet connection, simply plug in the Ethernet
      cable into the printer.
      – If you are connecting via Wi-Fi, make sure your printer is set up in Infrastructure
      mode
      see here .It is advised to use your
      printer user manual or the Brother support website for how to
      connect your printer to a wired network or to a Wi-Fi network in Infrastructure
      mode.Note that a wired network is likely to be more reliable than a wireless
      network.
    2. Double check that the printer is connected and is available in the Local Area
      Network (LAN) before proceeding.
    3. Note that if you have only one QL label printer in your network, knowing it’s IP
      address is not mandatory as the label printer will be automatically discovered
