Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

1 Answer

HL-2070N Network configured setup questions.

I've set up my printer connected through my router from my Vista machine. It seems to all work. I assume that to use it with other computers on my home network that I would have to load the drivers on the other machine(s). When I try to load the drivers on my xp machine from the cd I get a "this OS is not supported" The printer is suppose to work with XP so I'm baffled.

Does the linksys-G support WPS or AOSS?


Good question, I have the same router & Brother HL-2280DW and ran the printer setup CD from Windows XP SP3 via temporary USB connection & it seemed to work. The WAN report on the printer itself says OK, however the computer can't seem to find the printer "No devices could be found on the network." I let setup make changes to Windows Firewall, not sure about Microsoft Security Essentials however. This seems like a nice printer/copier at a nice price but this setup is frustrating! PS If it's a security issue I'd like to say thanks to all the hackers for ruining technology for everyone, your junk is responsible for slowing down & complicating computers & technology in the world. Someone please do everyone a favor & start making antibodies that *kill* viruses & spyware & spam and clean & speed things up for a change! All these villians - Where are the cyber super heroes????

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:

Just replaced Netgear WebSafe router with Linksys WRT400N. Now, can't "see" printer in network nor can access it to change settings (or print). Have tried with ethernet cable straight to router and through...


Reset printer to factory settings according to manual. Plugged in ethernet cable directly to router. Ran BRAdmin which recognized printer and saw that IP address had been automatically set within new router range. Changed setting to STATIC. Deleted old printer definition from printer list and added updated definition using Printer Setup Utility. Printed test page from BRAdmin. Also printed file from Documents folder wirelessly. Changed printer settings in another laptop & was able to print wirelessly from there as well.

Ip address for brother 2040


Up to 20 pages per minute
• HQ1200 resolution (up to 2400x600dpi)
• HL-2040: 8MB memory standard
HL-2070N: 16MB memory standard
• 250-sheet input capacity
• USB 2.0 and Parallel interfaces1
• Built-in Ethernet Network Interface1 (HL-2070N)
The 2070 has networking not the 2040, according to the borchure, you would not be able to network this one, only usb and parrallel port. You could do it if you wanted to use a computer as your network printer server. In that case just use your router to select an ip address for that machine and either run it in DMZ if you have a linksys . If you just enable shared printer it should work on all your machines on the network. That's how I did it prior to a 4in1 wireless.

Can't reinstall my brother hl-2070n


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I am trying to connect to new acer laptop to my wireless network, but my acer empowering technology toolbar, located above my keyboard, does not seem to be working to allow me to connect to my wireless...


Hey

for this you gotta now the following:

1. ssid : this is the name of your access point (router)
2. key/passphrase: this is the network security key you configure your router with (if your router has a default configuration (the one that came with the device right out of the box which is not recommended) your key may be a blank key ... you simply don't have one set up.
3. the encryptation method: wep, wpa, wpa2. this goes again to how you have your router configured and if your don't have anything configured with your router in regards to encriptions (not recommeded) you may simply not have any encryptation that you need to select here.

important:
make sure your wireless adapter is working and is on:
your laptop may have a switch on the front to turn your wireless adapter on (i don't know what model of laptop you have so you may want to check the user manual that came with laptop to find the switch) or you may have to turn it within windows. (also check the user manual of your laptop)

now that you have the info needed and your adapter is on there are 2 ways to do this:

1. using your beloved acer empowering technology:
I found this that may guide you through the process of setting up your wireless connection
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/empowering_technology/acer_enet_management.pdf

look under the title: SETUP A NEW PROFILE and follow the instructions..

now if acer empowering does not work... you can try to setup your wireless connection with windows,

2. Using windows vista to setup your wireless connections:
I'm assuming you're using vista so here's a set of instructions with pictures you may want to take a loot at and follow

http://www.home-network-help.com/vista-to-connect-wireless-network.html

let me know how it went!
if problems.. post what you see and we'll try to give you hand. (please give as many details as possible)

plug an ethernet cable into one of the ethernet jacks on the router and the other end into the printer. run driver installation setup on your computer that is connected to the wireless network and choose peer-to-peer networking. let your computer search for the network printer. follow installation instructions to complete.

I am assuming you upgraded to vista from xp and you are missing the above options, might i suggest visiting brother web site and seeing if they have an updated driver for your printer compatable with windows vista, this may give you the options you want.
