Wireless? Really?

dot, Staples
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: After paying an extra $30 to get the wireless version of this printer, I am completely unable to make it work on my PC. Via wired connection it is fine. All attempts to install the drivers, etc as indicated by the CD-ROM have failed. Tried to talk with Brother help human being but line broke off.
