Wireless printer connection with at&t u-verse

I have three options to setup my hp 6980 wireless printer to the u-verse 2wire 455. (1) secure easy setup (2) connect now (3) using an ethernet cable. I have tried all three options and none of them have worked. Using the temporary ethernet connection the network sees the printer, but the final installation into my laptop for comfirmation stops at around 9%. Previously I had no problems with the westek wireless router in which I had 3 desktop and two wireless computers as well as the printer. Some have said that the problem maybe with WPA as oppose to WEP that the 2wire works on WPA, but neither of the installation choices gives me that option. I believe that the printer still has westek router configuration.

    I have the same problem. I was using AT&T's DSL service along with a Linksys wireless router. My 6980 worked fine with that system, but I can't get the printer to work since I switched to U-verse.

    Had a Linksys router and wireless Brother HL-4070 printer. Worked perfectly. Since uVerse wireless router was installed I can't connect to the printer. The printer sees the wireless router and comes up with the signal logo on the printer display but computers on the wireless network can't print to the printer.

OK I FINALLY figured out how to fix this. You need to program your router to allow your printer to connect to it. Do this by going to your 2Wire router setting homepage by entering http://192.168.1.254 in your address bar. Now sross to the bottom and click wireless. Go down to MAC Filtering and click Edit Blocked/Allowed Device List. You need your printers MAC address now. You can get this by turning your printer on and press the button that has a check mark on it. It will print out a report page. Your MAC address should be called the hardware address and should be 12 digits. Now go back to your computer and enter this address in the form xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx where it says MAC address and click add to list. You might need to enter your password now mich should be on a sticker on the bottom of your router. Voila! Now make sure you have uninstalled the HP software from your previous install attempts if you have any, and turn off your firewall. (Control panel--security---turn off firewall) Now use the provided HP install disk and follow the instructions. Click install a wireless printer. It will not find it now but thats okay. When it asks what type of connection you want to have click wireless. Now select the basic setup where you connect an ethernet cable to your printer and router. Now connect the printer and router with the ethernet cable. Now click refresh. It should find it now. You'll need to select your network name and enter your WPA network key (located on the bottom of the router if you didnt change it). It should find it now!! Remember to turn your firewall back on! Happy printing!!

What worked for my Brother HL-4040CDN is I did a "factory reset" of the printer itself, used the official Brother software to install the printer, selected "Standard Installation", selected "Brother Peer-to-Peer Network Printer" (I use an ethernet cable), clicked "Next" (the recommended method should already be selected), at this point if your printer is found you should be able to use your printer at the end of the setup, but if it isn't found you'll have to follow the recommended troubleshooting steps.

    Did you resolve your issue? I just had UVerse installed and also have a netgear wgp6060 wireless printer server that is now not functioning. I added it's MAC address to the UVerse homepage and that hasn't helped.

I have a Tosiba Laptop that is wireless to my desktop but now I bought a new HP wirless Printer and it want my WEP key. Nothing on the router helps, tried all three numbers. What do I do?


The WEP key is the security key that you setup when you initially setup your router. w/o that key you won't be able to connect. if you can not remember the wep key; enter the setup of your router. u will see it there under the security setting tab.

I have a brother mfc wireless printer 7840w. It came with an install cd that I am trying to install it on my laptop - hp windows vistas. during the install there are three options - one is usb, ethernet,...


ok this is not fiewall issue your printer did not or you did not configure this correctly

you have to first install this using USB cable that came with it .... important .... do not connect printer first ... install you software first and it will ask you to connect your printer

once you install this you will have an option assign IP addrress to your printer

once you configure your printer with DHCP or static IP you are good to go

go to your printer setup and add your printer via either IP address or the name you gave when you configured your printer

good luck

You may need to verify the wireless security enabled in your router. Check from your router's setup page the security type and security key enabled in it to connect your wireless printer.

Wireless printing with AT&T U-verse and 3800 HGV-B and Linksys WPSM54G


I may not be able to completely solve the issue for all who posted, and I have not gotten the scanner part of my Brother MFC-5440CN printer/scanner/copier/fax to work through the wireless PS, but I can at least shed some light:

First off - trying to make the Linksys WPS54G work on a wireless network that has a decent level of security is NOT for the faint of heart!

Key issue is security; make sure you know what wireless security protocol your router is using (WEP-64, WEP-128, or WPA). My U-verse installation uses the exact same 2Wire router, but either it defaults to WPA security, or the tech set it up that way without asking me. WPA is preferable anyway, as it is the most secure, and I had my network set up on WPA with my ZOOM X6 when we had AT&T DSL.

The problem is that the Linksys unit is old/obsolete enough that it defaults to WEP or no security, and in fact the setup program and utilities on the CD that came with the refurb. unit I recently bought are way outdated compared to the current downloads available on their support site, and don't even offer WPA as an option.

If your U-verse router is configured for WPA, as is most likely, then you have to get your Linksys unit configured for WPA security before it can be properly "seen" on the network by your computers. This means either downloading the latest setup/driver programs from Linksys's support website and burning a fresh setup CD, or getting to the Web-interface of the unit and setting it there (I could not even get to the web-interface because of my firewall and other security). Only then can you set the unit to use WPA security with the same key/passphrase as your U-verse router and your computer(s).

I'd advise downloading the latest stuff in any case. I ended up downloading the latest firmware, upgrading it on the unit using the Bi-Admin util on the setup CD, setting up the unit using the web-interface (be patient, because sometimes the page loads can be very slow when it is reading or writing settings). I have never been able to access the web-interface from my laptop, which is probably the most secure on our network. I was only able to get things working when I accessed it from an old PC we rarely use, and it is only running Windoze (XP) Firewall for security. The print server had to be Ethernet connected to the router while doing the configuration to make it work.
