For me, the quick solution was to use the 'Open System' instead of 'Shared Key', 'WPA/WPA2-PSK' or 'LEAP' authentication options on your printer.
However, after that, I decided to change the security settings on my router a bit. Log into your router, click the 'Home Network' icon at the top, and then check out 'Wireless Settings.'
The 'Wireless Security' section should tell you how your 2Wire is configured (which I eventually changed to WPA2-PSK.)

Go to printer and faxes option and choose the printer model which you installed just right click on it you will see the option of use printer online. Also I suggest you to change the usb port and the cable also because you mention it goes off-line .
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

I will say i am above average in computer knowledge, i have setup many different issues with computers, but this was had me stumped. I have a BROTHER MFC-7840W win xp prof and i have to say calling BROTHER customer service was awesome.
For 2Wire users, at first I was very skeptical because of issues i was having, but once understand how works, kinda nice not having all those extra boxes and wires from modem and routers. Anyway, the key to getting this to work is to go out to the router, wireless and mac address open that up and uncheck the box enable. All 2wire manufacture's at least AT&T should have a further notation that all manual and WIRELESS additions of mac address must have box unchecked. Once i unchecked, honestly within 2 seconds printer was set up.

I had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution anywhere. My laptop said the wifi Brother MFC-255CW printer was offline, when the printer was definitely online and connected.
In the end I simply went into Control Panel / Printers, selected the Brother printer, and deleted it off the network. Then I chose "Add a Printer" from the network, and reselected the only printer on my home network - which was the Brother MFC-255CW that I had just deleted. The computer reinstalled the driver, and everything was fine again - haven't had a problem since.
