Hi! I have a brother HL-2170W printer. It is connected via ethernet cable to a Dynalink RTA1046VW router (which is sitting on top of the printer) and I have a HP pavillion entertainment PC that is...


Hi!
Your Printer is connected to the (network) router via ethernet cable. Hence, it is a NETWORK PRINTER NOT A WIRELESS DEVICE, no matter your PC is connected to the network wirelessly. So, search for and install the printer as a NETWORK PRINTER. From the printer installation, it should searh and find the printer and susequently install the required drivers.
Moreover, you may checkout the followings link for instructions on how to install/ add a network printer.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Turn off Windows Firewall
To reset the printer:
Turn off the 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.

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:

Hl-2170w offline problem on windows vista


I finally figured this out. Do the "cable" install. After it discovers the printer etc you will get to a screen during the driver part of the install that will ask you how to find the printer. The "recommended" list method is a deadend!  Instead, check the IP address option and input that.. You can get the IP address of the printer from the test page which should have already printed.(Its probably 192.168.2.3).  I run   XP and it solved the problem. I suspect its also the answer for Macs and Vista as well.
I have also had success by doing the "cable" install, then when its done, deleting the printer in Printers and Faxes, then doing a manual install (you still need the IP address).  I am using two computers to go to this printer and it flies. Great speed.

Hl-2170w brother is offline


I just realized what my problem was with this same situation..."Off line". Do the following:

1. Reset the printer to factory default settings: turn off, turn on holding down blue button; after all LEDs light-up release button; All LEDs with go out then flash once.
2. Hook up the printer to an open port on your wireless HUB.
3. Install Brother software (note: go to programs/brother HL-2170 and select remove software prior to reinstalling)
4. Here is the catch: MAKE sure to select the correct encryption code. I was selecting TKIP instead of AES and two things happened...1) the computer did not pick up the printer on the network scan, and 2) the printer will remain off-line.

Once i selected AES, the computer found the printer on the network and viola' no more problems.

I then added my wireless laptop: installed drivers only, the programs scanned and found the printer on the wireless network and that was it. Now both computers are wireless!

HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

I do not know what I should type in beside the Network Key when I am installing my wireless setup for my brothers printer HL-2170W?


The network key mentioned is the security key that you use to connect to your wireless router. It is the key code you use when you connect a computer wirelessly to your router.
If you need assistance getting the network key please message me with the brand and model of your wireless router

I hope this has answered your question. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.
