Hello everyone! I have got a Brother printer that is setup wirelessly at my house. But I notice a weird thing today i.e., my printer automatically goes into offline mode. I have no clue what’s the reason behind this. I have also checked printer settings, but everything is appropriate. Also, update printer drivers still having the same problem. If anyone knows how to fix this issue then please tell me as I am ready to set up my Brother printer in a fresh way.
