I have a bit of an odd problem. I have the Brother HL-2170W wireless printer and I have set it up to work on my wireless network. The way I did this is by running the utility off of the CD that was supplied with the printer. It is currently set up and working properly on both my desktop (ethernet) and laptop (wireless). Now, I want it to be set up wirelessly on a Mac computer running OSX 10.6.4. The only problem is that the CD Drive isn't working on it and that is the only way I know how to add new computers to work wirelessly with this printer.
I have tried using all of the solutions on the Brother website (which includes installing the latest version of CUPS, and trying the BRAdmin Light Utility), but the best I could get is printing via USB. I would like to avoid doing this if possible since the built-in print server (for whatever reason) seems to "forget" all about the wireless settings when another computer uses the USB. This forces me to reconfigure everything again for wireless use, via the utility on the CD.
Does anyone know of some way to set up the wireless connection from the Mac to the Brother Printer without having to use the CD? I realize this is a long shot, but I am out of ideas and would really like to get this all working.
Thanks in advance.
