Hi, this printer does not work on Vista, as the model is too old.

If you have Windows XP, then Click here to download driver.

For older Win 98/Win ME and Win 2000, see:Aspire 6920 Series

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.

Lost instalation cd for brother HL-2170w laser printer


So far as I can tell, the actual wireless setup software is not available for download at Brother's web site. The part number for ordering a replacement disk at brothermall.com is LU2442001.

Can't install new home printer (brother HL-2170W); have limited computer skills. Computer is HP Pavilion w. Win XP Home Edition. Old broken printer is HP LaserJet 1150, which I installed easily w. HP CD...


I wouldn't worry about turning the printer on and connecting it, that's just to avoid picking up generic drivers before you install the ones from the disk.

It's possible your installation CD is faulty. Follow these steps:

1) Download the latest drivers from the address below and install them.

2) Connect your printer with pc off and turn both the pc and printer on. Windows should automatically install the drivers. If not then open device manager and install from there.

I hope this helps,

erch.

Can not get my printer to print from the computer


Unfurtunately you didnt tell us what pc system you run: Is it XP, Win2k or Vista?

The latter one wont be able to connect to your pc.
For the mfc 210c are only drivers for xp and win 2k, 98se avaiable.

You need another (newer) mfc (mfc240 or 235) if you run vista.

Anyway, if you run xp, download the aggrssive usb driver remover from the brother homepage and delete the drivers installed.

After a restart of the pc do have the mfc DISconnect from usb port (which must be one of the pc: NO hub!). Insert install disc and wait until pc software demands the connection to mfc. Connect now to pc usb. Let the software finish the installation. This should work for xp and win 2k/98se.
