Question about Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer
I cannot get the ptrinter to connect wirelessly. The instructions are very confusing. Can you help?
Look at the top of the printout on the first line. Does it end in (Active)? It should otherwise you have to reset the printer. Instructions are in the manual. Power off, hold down the GO button as you turn the printer on and wait til all 3 leds light up, release GO button, then press it 7 times. (I'm not kidding thats the reset procedure to factory defaults. Now do the install with the network cable method, then install BRAlight from the disk (PW=access). Now Click Start,Settings, PRinters and Faxes, now DELETE the printer you just installed, then do a manual install per http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Network%20Users%20Manual/NUM_HL_2170W_EN_1292.PDF
For Windows® XP and Windows Server® 2003:
