Wifi Brother DCP-J140W printer setup (Linux&Windows7)- print from Linux/android/Windows7
Saturday 1 August 2015

1) Intro:

First time I setup a Wifi printer at home. I use my daughter printer.

A friend asked to help to “repair” his wifi printer connection. I encountered “problems” and so unable to resolve. So I try to understand what’s going on.

Here are the results. Mainly for my own usage.

– (2-a) Wifi by WPS
– (2-c) Wifi fixed IP
– (2-d) Wifi print with Android smartphone
– (2-e) Wifi print with Windows7

2) Setup (Linux Debian Wheezy):

2-a WPS

a-1 Printer panel: Menu->Network->WPS activate->Wizard->Found SSID “Myrouter”->WPS rtr (here do not choose ok yet)

a-2 “Myrouter”-> Push wifi button 5s, the blue light blinks

a-3 Printer panel: OK-> configuration message-> done or someting like that.

a-4 Check printer really detected in the network SSID “Myrouter”: I use Fing with my android smartphone: it shows BRW00xxx 192.168.1.108

b-1 USB Print check in Debian:

– Download driver bundle from Brothe linux web site. Install the whole.
– Link the printer via USB
– http://localhost:631
– admin
– Add printer (DCP-J140W) and activate it
– Check port: USB something
– Print a test page.

b-2 Wifi Print check in Debian:
– in localhost:631: Administration->Modidy printer->Network->Ipp
– Print test page.
– Disconnect USB from printer, print a test page

b-2

PNG – 115.4 kb

2-c Wifi fixed Ip:

– “Myrouter” 192.168.1.1
– Add device: hostname (BRxxxx), Mac addresse, 192.168.1.200
– Print a test page and check with Fing on smartphone: Nothing happens.

– Printer setup:menu->Network->TCPIP->Fixed->192.168.1.200->255.255.255.0->bridge/router 192.168.1.1-> name BRxxxx (I left as it was with WPS).

– The previous print job is accepted now. Check Fing.

(Thanks to a contributor in Swisscom forum, for the fixed IP tips)

2-d Wifi Print with Android smartphone:

– Install from playstore: Brother iPrint&Scan 2.0.3. Should not have major problem to use.

PNG – 43.8 kb

PS: I will describe for Windows 7 later.

2-e Wifi printer with Windows7

– As I don’t have the original cdrom install, I download a driver bundle from Brother web site for winfows 7 (Mfl pro ?) .

– Connect the printer by USB
– Windows detect it
– Check print -> KO. No communications.
– Install the bundle form Brother.
– Delete the printer.
– Do manual install, add printer, choose dcp-j140w.Continue. At the end, print test page->OK.
– Click on newly installed printer. Screen from Brother shows up. Click tasks. Int asks print a test page->OK. Properties: Port USB.

– Take out the USB cable.

– Add printer->Choose network wifi or bluetoth-> Gives a list of available printer->choose printer as 192.168.1.108 (as the first time pairing by WPS). Configuration takes a while.
– Click on the newly installed printer->A screen from Brother shows up with items. Choose Tasks (1st item). From there print test page->OK. Properties: shared, port:192.168.1.108/TCPIP standard.

2-e-1 Wifi printing with fixed IP address
– Menu->Config panel->display devices and printers
– Add printer->Network->Listing of printers-> Choose 192.168.1.200->Continue->Configuration takes a while. Shows DCP-J140W(Copiex)-> Ready.
– Click on other screen, Continue till finish. Use as default.
– Click on newly installed printer. A screen from Brother shows up. Choose tasks (1st item). From there ,Print test page-> OK. Properties: shared, port shows WSD-xxxxx/WSD

Images will come.

Next step: windowsprinter sharing

Thanks to web anonymous people for hints and tips.

WIFI Share and print Linux/Windows 7/Android Kitkat
Monday 3 August 2015
by philippe Vo cong tri
popularity : 4%

1) Intro:

I put down the “experience” of wifi sharing between Debian Wheezy/Windows 7 (starter)/android kitkat.

This follows the previous article on wifi printing.

– 2) Sharing Debian Wheezy: shutdown firewall
– 2-1) Sharing xxx-PC: shutdown firewall
– 2-2)Sharing test on android kikat

– 3) Printserver on Debian
– 3-1 Debian printserver: with samba
– 3-2 Shareprinter test on Kitkat: No luck.
– 4) Conclusions: link, config files

2) Sharing Debian Wheezy: shutdown firewall

I use mainly my Acer netbook.

– #apt-get install samba client-samba (latest version)
– #vi /etc/samba/smb.conf. The minimum configuration.
– #testparm. To see if it’s ok.
– #/etc/init.d/samba restart

netbios name: debianserver workgroup: WORKGROUP

2-1) Sharing xxx-PC: shutdown firewall

I use Asus netbook.

– Click on network: shows “debianserver” (give username and password).

– Click on “debianserver”->shows the Debian directory.

– Share windows directory: Network->click on MyPc-> Choose sharing option (for me specific user). If required enter username (before that must configure as residential with advanced network item).

– On Debian: filemanager->network->shows “debianserver” and “philippe-pc”->click on “XXX -pc”->Ignore errormessage: shows the dir tree->click on share “philippe”-> enter username/password->shows the files in folders.

2-2)Sharing test on android kikat:

I use EsPlorer3 app. Latest version
– Click local network
– Click on detect -> shows “debianserver”
– Click on “debianserver” -> shows the tree on Debian -> Click back ->Click property of “debianserver”-> enter username/password of the debian user.
– Now click “debianserver”->click on the declared share directory (philippe)->OK.

Test files transfer-> OK.

3) Printserver on Debian:

A have an “old” dcp-167c printer, to use with usb cable. I use it since some years. The setup printer name is dcp167c.

I want to print as a sharedprinter.

3-1 Debian printserver: with samba (smb printer.-> once setup as in (2) -> Check on windows 7: -> Add printer -> Network wifi bluetooth-> Click on my printer is not on the list->Click search by hostname-> enter \\Debianserver\dcp167c->continue->Shows dpc167c on Debianser-> Or detetected and try to install driver (hopefully I have installed the printer driver before by downloading from Brother Linux web site; the printer with usb worked eons ago) -> OK -> Print test page, sending job to Debianserver-> OK.

3-2 Shreprinter test on Kitkat: No luck.

I just remember that I setup Google cloud print in 2013.

– On my smartphone->install Google cloud print app -> Parameters-> Printing-> Enabale Google cloud print -> Shows the printer dpc167c as installed on Debian.

– (How to install Cloud print on Debian ?) -> Install chromium -> Open Chromium and make connexion with same account as in my smartphone-> Open option printers (or put cloud in search box).

– Caveat: On smartphone kitkat, some apps do not have print function, I have to rely on third paarty print apps to be able to print on cloud !

Hopefully there are tutorials on the web to sort out the problem.

PNG – 79.7 kb

PNG – 135.4 kb ============================================== 4) Conclusions:

– Make sure I have to turn on my firewall.

I rely on tutorials on the web particularly: http://debianhelp.co.uk/samba.htm

Thanks to many web contributors for hints, tricks, tips.

================================================== The smb.conf:

#

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.

#

#

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the

# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed

# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which

# are not shown in this example

#

# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as

# commented-out examples in this file.

# – When such options are commented with “;”, the proposed setting

# differs from the default Samba behaviour

# – When commented with “#”, the proposed setting is the default

# behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important

# enough to be mentioned here

#

# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command

# “testparm” to check that you have not made any basic syntactic

# errors.

# A well-established practice is to name the original file

# “smb.conf.master” and create the “real” config file with

# testparm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf

# This minimizes the size of the really used smb.conf file

# which, according to the Samba Team, impacts performance

# However, use this with caution if your smb.conf file contains nested

# “include” statements. See Debian bug #483187 for a case

# where using a master file is not a good idea.

#

#======================= Global Settings =======================

[global]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of

workgroup = WORKGROUP

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:

# WINS Support – Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server

# wins support = no

# WINS Server – Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client

# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both

; wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.

dns proxy = no

# What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names

# to IP addresses

; name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast

#### Networking ####

# The specific set of interfaces / networks to bind to

# This can be either the interface name or an IP address/netmask;

# interface names are normally preferred

; interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8 eth0

# Only bind to the named interfaces and/or networks; you must use the

# ’interfaces’ option above to use this.

# It is recommended that you enable this feature if your Samba machine is

# not protected by a firewall or is a firewall itself. However, this

# option cannot handle dynamic or non-broadcast interfaces correctly.

; bind interfaces only = yes

#### Debugging/Accounting ####

# This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine

# that connects

log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Cap the size of the individual log files (in KiB).

max log size = 1000

# If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following

# parameter to ’yes’.

# syslog only = no

# We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything

# should go to /var/log/samba/log.smbd,nmbd instead. If you want to log

# through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher. syslog = 0

# Do something sensible when Samba crashes: mail the admin a backtrace

####### Authentication #######

# “security = user” is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account

# in this server for every user accessing the server. See

I bought the Caesar with android 4.2.x, I rooted it with MTKdroidtools. I soft bricked it, last year, trying to upgarde to Kikat; I managed to flash a russian ROM 4.2.x, rooted and I wanted to install original rom firmware. Last week I bricked the smartphone (rooted), after succesfully install TWRP Zp910 and tried to upgrade it to 4.2 (for ZP910) . No more usb driver detected, no red light steady light charging ... >Dead…

I tried to use the testpoint technics, my grandson (91/2 years old), help me to dismount the frame to get onto the board, to no avail; In fact he has found the right screwdriver bit and unscrewing all of them and he also reminded me the K point label that I was looking for days (sharp mind isn’t he ? 🙂 ). Not really dead, I checked the battery with a mutimeter: gave 1,5 v. With Smartphone (battery insert), I checked live points on the board, there were juice.

The main interesting effect: PC Devices configuration shows Alcatel single RNDIS driver, switched on/off (the smartphone has battery inserted), when smartphone is connected to the pc.

Here is the exprience how to unbrick the thing. Thanks to much hints, tricks from people on the web and forii.

I am using Netbook Asus with Win7 starter.

2) Steps: 2-1)
– Download latest sp-flashtool, v5-1352.01, install it.
– Download from needrom.com: A9600-official-130319, unzip it
– Download MT65xx_usb_driver ; make sure that’s the right one for MT6589 and if possible for CaesarA9600, Zp910 etc … I have to find the web link on my other cheap smarphone,

– Uninstall Alcatel single RNIS from the PC. Reboot the pc.
– Insert the smartphone usb, with battery. Wait a moment, a click sound from the pc will be heard: win7 tries to install driver on a popup window, stopped it windows update …
– Wait a moment, Win7 will search on the pc the correct driver: vcom and will install it without error.

2-2)
– Disconnect the smartphone from the PC.
– Run Sp-flashtool
– Choose the scatter file (A9600-official), in the 2nd row
– Once scatter file loaded, all stick boxes showld be ticked
– Click download button
– Hold smartphone Volume+ and insert usb cable to pc usb port.
– Unhold smartphone volume+.
– Wait a moment, the PC will detect smartphone as COM/LPT: Vcom port 12 or 13 whatever.
– Wait a moment, the sp-flashtool will start to download data to the smartphone, yellow color bar progress shown on lower part.
– When 100% download, without error, a popup window with green symbol and OK will be shown.
– Discounnect the usb cable, wait for the sound from pc, reinsert it back. Now the smartphone driver will jitter on the pc devices configuration panel, I can see drives E F briefly, then YunOS will be shown at the end of devices configuration screen.
– Red steady light charging shown on Caesar A9600, I can see the battery image jittering on the screen .

– It’s alive. WELCOME Back …

2-3
– After a night wall charging, the Caesa rchecking gives 4.1.2 version. English version.

– Screen captures will be shown below.

ps: The testpoint is on a screw hole, down right (I think), the smatphone has a tiny label with K symbol, which covers the head of the screw. (???) We had to scratch the label in order to take out the screw.
