After a lightening strike, my Arris router had to be replaced.  After that, when my Brother Printer MFC 8710-DW would sleep, it would disconnect from my iMAC (OS version 10.13.6).   Here is the series of things I did, and what happened. It appears so far that my connection is no longer being dropped.  This took several hours, and hopefully my writing this will save someone else similar frustration and time.
 
 
 
1.     I installed new printer drivers from the Brother web site; this did not seem to help.
 
2.     I installed new printer firmware from the web site, this did not seem to help.
 
3.     While the printer was temporarily connected, I went to settings>  printers and faxes> options and supplies> Show printer webpage> network>Protocol>  and deselected “air print.”  This did not seem to help, but I left it deselected.
 
4.     Then I went to “show computer webpage” as above, then >Network> clicked on IPv6(wireless) button, then clicked to “enable IPv6.” My printer still disconnected from the Mac upon sleeping.
 
5.     I enabled CUPS Interface for my Mac. This, perhaps in addition to the above, kept me connected to my printer.   Here are the details on CUPS
 
 
 
CUPS = Common UNIX Printing System.
 
It ay be disabled by default on a MAC
 
 
 
To see if CUPS is disabled on your printer, go to:
 
 
 
http://localhost:631/printers
 
 
 
 
 
If you see a screen “Web Interface is Disabled” then your MAC does not have CUPS enabled.
 
 
 
To enable CUPS:”
 
 
 
Go to the Top right of your mac, and select the magnifying glass.  This brings up a spotlight search box. Type “terminal” (don’t include the quote marks) in this box. That brings up another box.  Continuing on the last line of the box,  type in or pastpaste in (without quotes):  “cupsctl WebInterface=yes” and then hit either the return or enter button.

Now go back to the http://localhost:631/printers site and look for your printer.  If it is there, you have activated CUPS.
 
 
 
Once I did this, my computer stayed connected to the printer.  The printer never does show up on my Arris Router Client list, but it remains responsive to my print commands.
