Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
I am trying to connect my Brother HP-2040 laser printer to my new Macbook Air..My instructions on the Macbook Air are to put the IP numbers in the address so I can find a list of printers...
Start by opening a command window on your computer.
Click the Start Menu and Click Run and type CMD and press enter.
You should now have a Black Window open and a prompt.
Type ipconfig and press enter
This will now put up some sets of text.
The item named Default Gateway is a series of numbers such as 192.168.1.1
In your browser address bar type \\<Number in the Default Gateway line>
This now opens up the login screen for your router.
Type in your login and password for the router

SOURCE: connect to network printer
Are you positive it is a HL 2040? The 2040 only has parallel and usb ports. The HL 2070 has the network port.
Anyway, if it is already being printed to on the network from other printers go to one of the other PC's and look under the printer properties tab, go to the ports tab and see which IP address has a checkmark in the box......that is the IP address you will need...
If it isn't already setup on another PC then you will need the setup CD that has the BRAdmin Professional Software.

Had the same issue. Change the router wireless security settings from TKIP to AES algorithms. This did the trick for me.

Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:
Driver : HP Mobile Printing
Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect
Access Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba)
Host : ip address of you printer
user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no use)
port : 9100
Printer Model: Officejet Printers
You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.

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. :)
