So I recently moved and AT&T made me buy new hardware to get DSL access and I'm having trouble getting the modem/wireless router to recognize my HL-2170W wireless printer. With my old setup, I just installed the driver, it scanned the network for the printer, and found it. Doing this made it so any of my (2) desktops and laptop could print to it.

At a loss as to what to do to get it work. These are the things I've tried:

1) Adding the MAC address to the router's allowed devices. Still cannot find it.

2) Uninstalling the drivers on one computer and reinstalling. When it gets to the part where it scans for the printer it cannot find it.

Any suggestions? Really not sure how to get the router to find it.

Running XP 64.

make sure your network name is the same as before check it by going to your printers home page, if you changed it with your new setup the printer has to be changed also. i have the same printer and had the same problem
