My Brother printer will not find an IP on the router. I've tried multiple ports, but all I ever get is zeroes, no IP, but the router works fine, I'm connected to it right now. Everything else thats...


The best way to have this printer work is to connect it with an lan cable. Here are some steps to check if the printer will work again.
Disconnect the lan cable from both ends. Make sure that the printer shows the blue solid light, Try to do the factory and network card reset. First turn off the printer by pressing he switch button on the right side. Press and hold the GO button while turning it on, then press go button 8 times as fast as you can without delay. Once you see the blue light solid again turn off the printer and do the network card reset. Turn off the printer by pressing the switch button on the right side. Press and hold the GO button while turning it on, then press go button 7 times as fast as you can without delay. After 1 minute reconnect the lan cable from the router to the printer. Wait 1 minute again the press the GO button 3 times without delay, it should printer the printer setting page that shows the correct IP address.
Hope this will help.

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:

Carrier jam


  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
Good luck....
