I am trying to install a Brother HL 1212W printer over the network. The printer was given by a friend who said her installation went very smoothly. Unfortunately this hasn’t been the case for me, and after several hours of frustration I am reaching out to see if anyone here has experienced something similar and knows the way out.
When I reboot the printer, it will after a while print a paper with a “WLAN report”, which states “Connection: Failed (Error : TS-02)”. It then suggests me to reboot the router (which I’ve already tried), to check if my WLAN access point is using MAC address filtering, and some more advances stuff which I don’t even get (I’d think making a home wireless printer connect to a router shouldn’t require advanced knowledge on these things).

Try to reset the network settings of the printer. After that do a new network search for available routers. Make sure 2.4 GHz Wifi is active as this printer does not connect to 5 GHz Wifi.
Here is a trick to reset the network settings https://support.brother.com/g/s/id/htmldoc/printer/cv_hl1210w/uke/index.html#GUID-AD10E66A-D2ED-4BDB-8C52-550C32029372_52
Although for me it’s absolutely unclear how you can connect to your router as this printer has no display at all! Pretty weird system...
