I have a Brother MFC J630W working over wifi, which is a multifunction device including printer and scanner. It used to work very well until I upgraded to 11.04 a few months ago.

The printer still works and has always been working well. The scanner part is what does not.

Right after the upgrade, it would not identify the device. Then I reinstalled the driver from Brother's website and now it does see it, but it doesn't work.

When I try
brsaneconfig3 -q
I get
Devices on network

When I try
brscan-skey -l
I get
SCANNER : brother3:net1;dev0 : Not responded

When I try
simple-scan -d
and I try to scan, I get

** (simple-scan:2924): DEBUG: Starting Simple Scan, PID=2924
** (simple-scan:2924): DEBUG: Restoring window to 600x400 pixels

** (simple-scan:2924): DEBUG: scanner_scan ("brother3:net1;dev0", 75, SCAN_SINGLE)
** (simple-scan:2924): DEBUG: Processing request
and the whole thing gets stuck

When I try xsane, a small window saying "scanning for devices" shows up, then it closes, and nothing happens.

I am trying to scan from my laptop, which is a Thinkpad X201 Tablet with Ubuntu 11.04.
