Thank you for your patience while I investigated your question. I will need some additional information in this instance as the information provided initially has not been very clear, I hope that is ok with you.

  1. Could I confirm you are attempting to set up the printer with the WiFi?

No

Has the printer been connected to the WiFi first?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Expert:  Andrew Balfour replied 15 days ago.

In that case, it should not request a WPS Pin during setup. I would assume the printer is not connected to the WiFi, let me find you the instructions on how you can set it up and then you can try install it on your device, is that ok?

Could I confirm the model of the printer is a Brother DCP 145c?

Expert:  Andrew Balfour replied 15 days ago.

I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a printer which you are attempting to set up using WiFi with your computer/laptop. I have looked into the specification of the Brother DCP-145C printer and have found that this printer is not WiFi-enabled and what that means is this model does not have any functionality to be used over WiFi. If you are still wanting to use the WiFi method, you may want to consider purchasing a new printer and if that is something you are happy to look into, I have suggested some websites below that you may browse for newer models.
