MK83 and Brother HL-5470DW printer


MK83 and Brother HL-5470DW printer

I have a question for everyone out there, is there a way to connect a Brother HL-5470DW printer to the MK83 Mesh via ethernet. Right now my printer is no longer "seeing" the network, it can see the neighbour's but not mine and the printer is right beside the router.


Any thoughts, there is nothing in the manual at all. I know the printer works as it did so on the previous mesh, I also know the printer does not work with 5GHz and only 2.4 GHz.


Hopefully someone can help, do not want to have to buy another printer when this one works great.

yes you can hardwire the printer in. 
I believe that printer has an ethernet port you should be able to connect to the router or satellite
