Hi, having recently purchased a Brother printer/scanner I've been trying,unsuccessfully,to connect to bluetooth and get it working wirelessly.Everything is functioning-apart from my Toshiba laptop,which refuses access to internet. help please.I need that laptop!

Printer/scanners normally use wifi not bluetooth for wireless operations. How are you connecting the Tosh - cable or wifi?

Thanks for replying.No cables! Have managed to connect to internet but unable to connect to printer via wifi. Printer is successfully connected to hub but not responding to Toshiba via wifi. Hope that makes sense!

Which model of Brother? Did you install the drivers on the laptop?

There was a major problem with internet access yesterday - BT is apologising for it.

There are separate drivers for the wi fi and cable for a Brother; have you specified the "default printer" in your settings? I got a bit fed up with one for a relative and in the end cabled it.

i actually got my thought processes working and checked y default printer. It was indeed in 'error' so I changed it. I'm pleased to report that my Toshiba is connected to the internet and everything is working well. Thanks for all your help,guys.
