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.

Hi,

Please check that, can you go online with any wireless computer,if you can go online with that, then try to reconnect your wireless printer again (if can't go online then check wireless router)


Hope it can resolve your query

Brother 2170W "fails to associate"


Have you tried the SecureEasySetup method of connecting your HL-2170W to your wireless network?

Basically, it involves no wires:

1) Press the wireless setup button on the back of your printer (you may need to use a pen or pointed object)

2) Press the SecureEasySetup button on your router

3) Let the two sort it out - Green Go button on printer indicates success.

A complete guide for using the SecureEasySetup for your brother model:

I hope this helps!

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.
