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.

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.

Wireless connection doesn't work (ip not in subnet)


I had fits getting it setup myself for wireless. Despite any efforts to use the wired connection to change the wireless settings, I just couldn't get it to work. I ended up printing the configuration page to learn the expected SSID and then changing the SSID on my wireless router to match the SSID the printer was polling for. At that point it acquired a wireless address properly. Because I was several hours into making it work, I never tried changing anything else after I got it working.

Network issue with Brother 2070N Laser printer


Check if you have disconnect the USB Cable. Get IP from the printer in the menus. If you can´t get it. Use a Program like MarkVision Professional. You probably have no DHCP in your network. you should enable it and check IP in the router.

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

Hello rustyred, i tried to answer your live chat but my server or the fixya connection was causing issues. Trully sorry. can i still help? 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.
