February 19, I’d particularly recommend the Brother over the personal HP hl2-170w, if only to avoid the other programs HP tries to foist off on me.

Should mention that I connect to it via Ethernet. Click the Plus button underneath the list of printers on the left. My router is upstairs but I want to keep my printer in a room downstairs. That will tell you that the printer is visible on the network. Otherwise, leopaed you are directly connecting the printer and the iMac using an Ethernet cable, then you should use a cross-over cable. Hi Sno, Hopefully I can make the instructions more understandable.

Once the printer is configured, we can unplug the Ethernet cable and move the printer to anywhere since it is now wireless connected.

I can’t delete my print jobs and my printer is offline – HP Support Community –

September 19, 9: This would be the same as keeping the two connected with a USB cable though. Just wanted to make sure that I won’t lose all printing capability when I upgrade to Snow Leopard, seeing how Snow Leopard isn’t released yet so I can’t really test SL with the printer once it’s delivered to my home.


Its the feature set beyond that which is troublesome when model specific drivers no longer work in an updated OS.

Thank you for documenting your process! I ended up just purchasing a USB cord.

While Postscript may not hl-270w as necessary as it once was, one thing I’m not willing to compromise on it networking ability; the wireless networking of the Brother is a nice bonus, but the ethernet port is what I’m after. Configure the following options: We haven’t had a laser printer discussion in a little while at least so far as my search-fu could determine so I thought I’d throw this question out to the hivemind: July 13, I am directly connecting the printer and the iMac well, my Mom is.

It could be that there is a problem with some configuration on the printer side above instructions show initial printer config for wireless via a wired connection — that probably failed for my Mom because she does not have a cross-over cable. I have an HPwhich gave abysmal performance when connected to a G4 tower on OS X simple text would be fine, but anything with lots of graphics or a moderate-sized photo would take many minutes, and sometimes the job would never print.

Hi Rob, If you switch from wired to wireless, or vice versa, you will need to remove the printer and re-add it on Mac OS X.


And network printers couldn’t be more generic, are the least dependent on model specific drivers, have been supported across OS revisions, and Ethernet probably wins at being the most standard connection in PCs over the last two decades.

Windows XP and 7: If there is a generic PCL ‘duplex printing’ standard, then you’ll probably be able to keep it, if not, then you’ll lose it.

LP for Mac: Postscript still preferable? (re: Brother HL-2170W)

Select your location and OS X version. Any other brands I should consider? Friend bragging about 10 year old car with really low mileag [ Automotive ] by IowaCowboy All Settings Hit the Up arrow to Reboot. From then on, anything you scan will be added to the PDF specified by the Name field.

Nevyn Ars Praefectus Registered: It is much quicker initiating a scan than going through system preferences. The printer was then relocated and was reconfigured to be Brother HLDW Printer Wireless, that is when the scanning function failed. Never installed a driver, it just worked.
