How can I get the router to recognize the printer?
« on: March 21, 2011, 04:20:00 PM »

d-lINK n-300 (DIR-615) Wireless Router  HW/Ver: E1, F/W Ver: 5.00NA

I am having a problem with the DIR-615 router seeing my printer on a wired network.  The printer is a Brother HL-2170W (also capable of a wireless connection).  All other network PC's connect okay. I have attempted both wired and wireless connection procedures that came with the printer with no luck. The DIR-615 router does not see the printers IP address. How can I get the router to recognize the printer?

Thanks,
Paul

Is the networking on the printer enabled and set up for auto obtain an IP address if the LAN wired connection is made? Refer to the printers Mfr instructions on how to get it set up. Once it's set up, the router should hand it an IP address to use.
