SOURCE: I have a Brother MFC-7840w wireless printer. I'm

I will say i am above average in computer knowledge, i have setup many different issues with computers, but this was had me stumped. I have a BROTHER MFC-7840W win xp prof and i have to say calling BROTHER customer service was awesome.

For 2Wire users, at first I was very skeptical because of issues i was having, but once understand how works, kinda nice not having all those extra boxes and wires from modem and routers. Anyway, the key to getting this to work is to go out to the router, wireless and mac address open that up and uncheck the box enable. All 2wire manufacture's at least AT&T should have a further notation that all manual and WIRELESS additions of mac address must have box unchecked. Once i unchecked, honestly within 2 seconds printer was set up.

The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.

Let's see if I can help you.

Begin by turning on your computer and your router

Make certain that you have the latest drivers from Brother by clicking on the following link: Brother Driver Downloads

Open Control Panel and click on 'Diagnose Connection Problems' and follow the instructions.

The last choice is to use the Setup Wizard. It seldom works for me but you might more luck than poor me. Here are the instructions:

The Connect to the Internet wizard will guide you through the steps of setting up an Internet connection.

Open the Connect to the Internet wizard by:

• Clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button
• Click on Control Panel.
• In the search box, type network,
• Click "Network and Sharing Center"
• Click Set up a new connection or network
• Then double-click "Connect to the Internet".

This should have you up and running.

All the best

Ben

You will need to get a hold of att. They will need to have you unplug the 2wire and then reconnect. They will need to reset the gateway from their end. good Luck.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

I want to use 2 wire ATT UVerse -- BUT NOT WIRELESS


the 2wire att uverse router, does not broadcast wireless signal if there is no wireless computer connected to its network. regarding the unchecking of the ssid, it will only hide the network name of your router, but technically, if a computer will try to connect to your router, it will still "send" wireless signal to a computer within its range.

you do not have to worry about the wireless signal being sent, if nobody connects to the router via wireless cionnection.
