It seems as though my computer's connection has been broken. I have researched chat rooms and boards for days now.
The only fix is a horrible one Then it happens all over again. I have downloaded the most recent October Brother printer and scanner drivers posted on their website.
I have tried changing the IP options from Auto to Static, etc. Every time Apple reps post something, they end up "punting" to another string but no one has an answer. Brother points fingers at El Capitan and visa versa. Any thoughts or solutions or workarounds better than a 5-minute re-connection would be much appreciated!!!

I have an apple router, so can't speak to others. Go in to your Airport Utility and select the router that hosts the same network as your laptop or imac I am personally wired in through ethernet with wifi off. Go to menu bar and select base station, "add wps device". The two will find each other.

Now add a printer, it will find the Brother, then connect. If it is not there, select add it manually and select your model from the list followed by CUPS. When I connected in this fashion, I could connect to the printer's webpage, configure the scan to folder and specs, etc. Works flawlessly. Praying it sticks. Nov 7, PM.

Hey there - I'm not sure what settings you have on your printer, but I had a similar issue with the printer going offline, and I fixed it by turning on the IPV6 function in the settings of my Brother JDW printer.

I have this exact same problem - not just with wireless connections but also with wired connections using a USB connector to my MacBook Pro. It's infuriating. You can print 1 job with the wireless, I sometimes can print several jobs and then you get the "Cannot find printer" error and the job just sits in the print queue. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer with the latest drivers several times and have found the ONLY way to fix it is to reboot the Mac.
