Hi!
Your Printer is connected to the (network) router via ethernet cable. Hence, it is a NETWORK PRINTER NOT A WIRELESS DEVICE, no matter your PC is connected to the network wirelessly. So, search for and install the printer as a NETWORK PRINTER. From the printer installation, it should searh and find the printer and susequently install the required drivers.
Moreover, you may checkout the followings link for instructions on how to install/ add a network printer.

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g


Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect

Hi Terry_preyse !!

Thank you for writing to Fixya.com.

To setup a printer you'll require:
  • A Printer
  • An USB cabel or Wireless Card(if want to setup wireless printer)
  • Driver disc & it'll be shipped with the Printer
  • Last but not least, 15-20 minutes.
Unpack the printer carefully, plug the USB cabel in the printer. Don't connect it to the computer & turn on the Printer & here's what you need to do.

  1. Step 1 Set up your computer on your desk so that you are able to plug in your printer and other accessories in an orderly way. The PC is the center of your home office and all things should be setup in relation to this. Consider how you’ll run cables before selecting a location.
  2. Step 2 Assemble your printer. Few printers are ready to go out of the box. Open it up carefully and pull out the quick setup instructions. This usually entails affixing trays and installing toner and drums.
  3. Step 3 Decide on a method. Wired or wireless? Wireless will save you a lot of hassle but if you are on a tight budget wired does the job as well.
  4. Step 4 Install the drivers. Insert the CD that came with your printer into your computer and install the drivers before connecting your printer.
  5. Step 5 Connect with cables. Using a USB cable or a parallel cable, connect your printer to your computer. USB cables have a trapezoid shaped plug on the end that goes into the printer and a rectangle shaped plug that goes into the computer. Parallel cables will have holes on the computer end and pins on the printer end.


Hope this will help !

Wireless Setup


well..I suppose we should determine that you have your small office/business network set up first, right? it's under network connections. If it's not there, then your printer will stay invisible. Is this a replacement or new install?
