Fehlix asked if I could access the printer's own web page via a browser. I'm not sure what that means. When I had this printer working before there was an ipp address of 192.168.0.79 but I am unable to connect to that. I was also asked to post the results of inxi -Fxz. Here are those results.I tried this Brother script several times without success. CUPS sees the printer (supposedly), as does the MX Printer Properties tool, but I am unable to print a test page. It was working in Antergos, but an update and suggested fix borked the system, which is why I decided to try MX-17. (I vaguely seem to recall having trouble getting wireless printing to work in a much earlier version of MX (or AntiX, can't remember for sure).
Possibly unique to my situation is that the printer is directly connected to my wife's computer (which is on Windows 10 but not shared via Samba), which is wired to our modem (using the original network name). We had some wireless access points installed, which led to the creation of a new wireless network, which my computer connects to. It cannot see original network, as that is now an Ethernet only network, I gather. The printer was working on Antergos under this arrangement, but I am unable to get it working now.
Buying a printer specifically for my computer is an option I'd rather not pursue as I really don't have desk space for it. Any other ideas?
