[CS-FSLUG] Wireless Printing

I'm familiar with wireless networking in most home uses. What's new to me  
is wireless printing. A friend bought a Brother laserjet with wireless  
capability. There is a home network all Windows. The printer is connected  
to the home DSL router, which includes wifi. However, I understand the  
printer itself has a wifi capability, apparently not in use right now.

Users on this home network often get an error indicating the printer is  
offline. While there are diagnostics available, nothing seems to offer a  
way to keep this thing from going offline again.

1. Is there likely something in the printer's internal setup doing this?
2. Would it work better to use the printer's own wifi or the home network  
3. Any other suggestions?
