    I have a MacBook and a Brother printer. They are connected via wifi on my network, I have never had any trouble out of my printer until today.

    I tried to print a document and it the printer queue is saying the printer is not connected and going into Printer and Scanner settings also shows my computer thinks my Brother printer is offline.

    I haven't unplugged my wifi or printer or changed my network password. I went ahead and reset the wifi settings on the printer thinking that would fix it. But it did not and it still says my printer is offline...

    Help?

    Try going to the printer panel in System Prefs and remove the printer, then add it back. Can the OS see the printer to add it back as a wireless device?

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    So I tried just that last night, I removed the printer from the System Preferences and now it can't discover it at all.... Any suggestions?

    If you can't even see it to add it, then the issue is with the wifi setup on the printer and not your Mac. You will need to look in the printer manual and figure out how to get it reconnected over wifi.
