Create a new folder on your desktop and name it . Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to Brother's website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

:unable to print the wireless printer hl2170w


This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

BROTHER MFC-6490CW won't connect to wireless router


Having the same issue with 6490CW and Uverse internet. It connected just fine to my wireless when I had AT&T DSL. Well, just fine is an overstatement, it would constantly go "offline" and need to be re-connected but at least it printed fine when it was. Now, I switched to Uverse and it WILL NOT connect wirelessly. I went the cabled ethernet route and it STILL has tons of issues recognizing the printer and printing, often stopping mid print and spitting out a half printed page or just not printing at all and telling me the printer is turned off. Next step is to try connecting with a straight up USB connection, bypassing the network completely. I feel like that's my only option short of getting a new printer. Brother's software simply does not work with some networks it seems. I guess it has issues with FIOS as well. This does not surprise me and it is also not surprising that Brother has not updated the drivers for my printer since 2009. Pretty ridiculous since things have changed a lot on the technology front in almost 4 years.

Unable to connect to the laptop computers


dear Sure there is, but it's supposed to connect via a LAN switch. Since it worked at your old place, did you miss a step? Was the printer plugged into a router and the computer also plugged into the same router?

Start with the wired network setup section in the quick start guide. It might give you an idea on what to do http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Quick%20Setup%20Guide/QSG_MFC_490CW_EN_1578.PDF

Thanks.
