Brother HL227DW wiireless multi-WLAN question?

Brother HL227DW wiireless multi-WLAN question?

I'm running out of options with this one. I maintain the above referenced wireless printer that for volunteer work is transported from location to location. Each location has its own WLAN with WPA2 and after what appears to be a complete reconfiguration the printer becomes available on the network for other users to print to it.
Problem is is that the next day the printer visits yet a different location with another network. Again, after going throug the complete configuration it will work. But, the next day its back to the first location. You must get the idea by now.

My question is: is this particular printer capable of "remembering" multiple network configurations so it will reconnect automatically similar to how a laptop reconfigures itself when returning to a remembered WLAN?

If there is PLEASE explain how this might be accomplished?

Thanks all banghead

RE: Brother HL227DW wiireless multi-WLAN question?

Nope, doesn't appear to be able to save the settings, but you can use BRAdmin to do the setup easier, or if you can't add software to a machine on the network, there is a way to make changes to the printers network card, via a browser.
Network manualLook at page 31.
