Connecting wireless printer to new network

6 posts in this topic

We moved into some temp housing until we close on our new place. The landlord provides internet via wireless. I bought a wireless USB antenna for the computer and it works fine, but my wireless printer doesn't work.

Printer is a Brother HL-2270DW. It worked fine when I installed it at my old house, but I can't get it to connect to the new ntwork here, nor do I see a way to change settings for it.

I looked online and the only info I see is how to install it for the first time using the install CD.

Thoughts?

I usually have to go into the settings on my computer to change the iP address on my printer.  Do you have a utility or settings icon on your computer for the printer?  If not can you run an ethernet cable to the printer and computer and change it that way?  Good luck.  Let us know how it comes out.

What happens if you try the install process from the cd again?

I'm back...

You need to reset the network card in the printer to the factory default.   An example is here

This might be for a different printer but you can look for yours if this doesn't work. It was in the faqs.

Since that 2270dw printer has no LCD screen, you will have to reinstall the printer on your computer again via the USB cable, then join the WIFI network just as you did before.

If you don't have the install CD, that's ok, just download the full driver install on Brothers page for the HL 2270DW, it's the same as you had on the CD.

The install process goes out and queries all the devices on the network(internal wireless) for the printer, the printer will reply here I am and its network/IP info to recreate the IP print queue.  Either the install CD or download the install app from the vendor web page.

    •     thanks pikestabber!!!  that will work!!!!
    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!!
