    The w in 2170w means that this model is automatically wireless. So, I'd have to disagree with pineworks on this one, despite his guru rank.

Hello,
Since you changed from Wireless to USB I would recommend either reinstalling or selecting "add a printer" and allow the computer to automatically add the local printer.

We just got two brother hl 2170w printers from a lab across campus, they were configured for a wireless connection and now we are trying to connect them to the network via a wired connection. the test page...


hi there, this should work for you:

When you disconnect an Ethernet cable from the printer, wireless network will be enabled.
On the other hand, when the Ethernet cable is connected to the printer, wired network is enabled.

If you press the Go button for approx. 13 seconds, the network setting page will be printed out. Then release the Go button, wired network will be switched to wireless network even if the Ethernet cable is still connected.

You can then verify your network settings and change between wired and wireless setups.

2170W wireless connection to mac computers


My suggestion would be to connect an ethernet cable from the printer to the router. This is a more stable connection for the printer on the network.

All of your wireless computers will be able to connect to it and print to it as long as they are connected to the network.

To get the printer back in wired mode, you will need to reset the printer and network card of the printer.

1. Turn off power
2. Hold down go Button while switching back on
3. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 8 times quickly
4. Wait for the unit to finish warming up
5. Repeat steps 1 and 2
6. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 7 times quickly this time
7. Wait for the unit to finish warming up then plug in the ethernet cable.

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:
