Don't buy Brother. Customer Support is awful.

William C. Mcdonald, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer primarily due to its wired networking capability. However, after connecting, it subsequently drops the connection and then won't reconnect until I reboot my computer.

Automatic Wireless (one-push button) Method Did Not Work

Robert Sorrentino, Amazon
6 January 2010
  • Summary: The Brother HL-2170W was returned for several reasons. 1. Brother advertises that this model supports the Secure Easy Setup for configuring the machine easily without a computer. That is why I purchased the printer. My access point for the machine is a Linksys WRT54GL router which also supports SES.

Wireless connection is too complicated

D. Pinelle "Home Theater Enthusiast", Amazon

  • Summary: Bought the Brother HL-2170w printer to help me with my consulting business, to print b/w documents inexpensively for things like short letters, etc. The Brother MFC-685CW ink jet printer I already had hooked to my wireless network with no effort at all, and I expected the same with the 2170.

  • Excerpt: What a waste of time and money! I have set up networks both large and small, both hard-wired and wireless. After buying this less-than-stellar product and working with it for FIVE DAYS, the only thing it did is print test pages.
