      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Connecting wireless printer to new network

Recommended Posts

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.
