Hi @JP201,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!

 

You've definitely come to the right place! Have you already started the set up? Are you stuck on a specific step?

 

I'll tag some of our Resident Experts to help you out @Datalink, @-G-, @Gdkitty!

Few questions. Does the printer itself have wireless or wired networking on it?
If you post the model I can look it up.
Even if networked, It may not have the right things in it to be able to print from some devices.

@JP201  If your printer is unable to find (or connect to) your Wi-Fi network, it could also be due to an incompatibility with Band Steering, if you have that enabled.

Hi it is a Brother HL 2270 DW that used to work when my computer with disc drive worked. It says it is a wireless printer. I now have iPhone, iPad, chrome book that I would like to connect it to test her than buying a new printer

Hi JP201,

This is a really nice printer, its got wireless AND wired capabilities built in. I would recommend wired connection to your modem but if you insist on having wireless, here is a tutorial from Brother on how to set up wireless printing:
