The most important characteristics of a machine are the quality of its’ printouts and the speed at which each page is printed. Brother’s line of laser printers offers both of these features, all for a relatively lower price than you will find with most other laser printers of this class. The Brother HL2270DW steps up its’ level of convenience even more by offering a wireless feature in addition to the other laser printer benefits. Some people might be intimidated by the prospects of a wireless printer, especially if they have ever encountered difficulty setting up a wireless router, but the wireless setup process for the Brother HL2270DW is very simple. Additionally, once you have been able to set up wireless printing with the Brother HL2270DW on one computer, it is even easier to set the printer up with the rest of the computers in your home or office.
Wireless Setup for the Brother HL2270DW
The first thing to clarify when you are performing the wireless setup for this device is that your computer does not need to have wireless capabilities. It simply needs to be connected to a network that has a wireless element. For example, I currently have this printer wireless connected to my desktop computer. The desktop computer does not have a wireless network card, but is connected to my wireless router using an Ethernet cable.
The next point of clarification is that you will need a USB printer cable for the initial wireless setup of this device. Since the printer does not have a way for you to manually input the settings for the wireless network you will need to apply them to the printer from the computer. Brother also does not include a USB cable with the printer, so you will either need to purchase one or, preferably, use the cable that was connecting your old, wired printer to your computer.
Begin the setup process by unpacking the printer from its’ packaging materials, then removing all of the stickers on the printer. The toner cartridge is already in the printer, but you should take it out and shake it to reposition the toner inside. Replace the cartridge, then close the access door.
Connect the power cable to the back of the printer, then plug it in. Do NOT connect the USB cable yet. You will be prompted to do that later.
Turn on the printer, wait for it to boot up, then press the Go button on the top of the printer to print a test page.
