Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

Printer not being detected

Hi, i am currently having an issue with my Brother MFC-7220 USB Printer. the router has a usb port specifically for printers, so that all users on the network are capable of printer when ever the router is turned on. however, i go to the status page (192.168.0.1) of the router, and check the printer status, and it states it being 'idle'. and whenever i want to add the network printer it does not detect the DI-524 in anyway. It only has my 'computer name' then my USB printer which was previously installed onto the computer (\\computername\printer\). this is quite frustrating because i cannot seem to get either of the them to connect to each other. any ideas??

Where is IP address for the MFC-7220 printer


Network printers do not have a set IP address, you need to configure the printer with an IP address that uses the same range of IP addresses as your network.
The IP configuration is normally done through the printer's Menu on the printer's buttons.
If your are using a network IP range 192.168.0.*** that your wireless router issues automatically then select a fixed IP address on your printer above the number of computers that is installed on your network. (ie if you have 10 computers the make the printer's fixed IP address say 192.168.0.30) so the wireless router cannot issue a conflicting IP address.
When you install the printer driver on each computer then go to the Printer Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - IP port and enter the printer's fixed IP address and printer name.
Do a test print to check if your computer connects to the network printer.

Brother mfc-7840W not picking up wireless IP address


It is common, mainly because the MFC connection is lost to your PC. Are you able to print or scan from another wireless PC that you have? If yes, contact your network admin or router oem. If no, reset network card. Run the Setup Wireless Wizard. Make sure you have router info such as SSID, Network Security Key, Authentication Method (Open, Shared, WPA/WPA2-PSK), Encryption (None, WEP, AES, TKIP). Enter those info, it must be CASE SENSITIVE. Just in case you dont know your router info, contact your router oem.
For Advanced Users.1. Click your Wireless Icon at Task Tray2. Right-Click your Wireless Network Name3. Select Properties4. Go to Wireless Security Settings5. Take note of the settings that you have there and enter it again on your MFC
Goodluck! If you still need more assistance. Call us 1-877-Brother. :)

there a various drivers from brother, download the full software and driver package, it is executable, the others are designed to be used when windows searchs for a driver and you tell it that you "have disc" and point to location of download files.
Before installing it is best to delete previous installs unplu usb, download full package then run it, plug in usb when system promps. use brothers web for driver download.
