Download the software/driver package from Brother and do a clean install. You have to set it up first (best to do using LAN/wired connection initially).

I fixed the drum and error light but i still can't print


http://mycomputerbytes.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/reset-brother-hl-2170w-network-settings/
If printing via network and you have not set a static (meaning it doesn't change) ip setting for your printer, then your ip address may have changed. IF this is the case, http://mikebeach.org/2011/03/02/assigning-the-brother-hl-2170w-a-static-ip-address/
Also, have you updated your printer driver? Be sure to go to control panel, device manager, printer, and then uninstall before installing new driver. Also, uninstall/remove the printer.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE NETWORK IP ADDRESS AFTER INSTALLING?


This link should take you to the .PDF manual for changing IP addresses on your Brother HL 2170W Laser Printer. Refer to page 10 and 11. Use it to guide you through the steps.
It will ask you to use your Printer CD that was supplied with the machine to install and run the BRAdmin utility. If you do not have the CD, you can download the utility here.
I hope this helps you with your question. Thanks for choosing FixYa.com

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.

IP address


Hello,

If you lose the IP address you can reset the network card.

Since the machine no longer has an IP address, you MUST be connected with a network cable.

1. Turn the power off
2. Press and hold the "go" button (the blue one on the front)
3. While holding the Go button, turn the power back on.
4. Keep holding the Go button until all 4 lights are on.
5. Release the "Go" button and press it 7 times quickly.

This will reset the network card and you should get a proper wired LAN IP address.

Thanks,

Pat

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:

Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer is 'offline" wont turn back online


I have a lap top and was having the "printer offline" problem

1) I did the triple click on the printer as in soluyion two to get the IP address which is clearly labled on the 3rd page.
2) Clicked on "Devices and Printers" in the "Start" menu
3) Right clicked the "Brother..." icon and selected "Remove Device"
4) Selected "Add Printer" on the "Devices and Printers" menu
5) Selected "Add a wireless, network, or bluetooth printer"

Nothing was coming up in the search so...

6) Selected "The printer I want isn't listed"
7) Selected "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or host name"
8) Entered the IP adress from the 3rd page of the printout on to the line "Host name or IP address"
9) Left the "Query..." box selected, clicked "next" and printer installed
