Printer says "printer is currently


The printer is connected to the rest of your computer with connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware such as connecting cords or connecting pins are damaged or not secure, then printer would be offline. Users facing the printer offline issue are recommended to check the connecting hardware and if the connecting hardware is found damaged, they would have to be repaired to solve the issues.

Printer shows offline after installing correctly


make sure that the printer is turned on.
if you have the printer settings, you can check the configurations.
but if you have windows xp installed on your system, you can check the control panel, printers and faxes, then right click on the printer, you must set it as a default printer, and uncheck the use printer offline.

Hope this will help you solve your problem .

I can't print anything


Do the install with the network cable, DELETE the printer but not the contol files, do a manual install. The Brother software is screwy. Read the tech manual.

Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer is 'offline" wpm


I had the same issue and searched ALL over the net for a solution and was thinking about returning the printer until I found this. It works, ALL of my computers are up and running with no issues at all. Just follow these instructions and you should be up and running in no time.
