I have moved my office and in the new place I cannot seem to be able to use my wireless brother 2270WD printer with my mac computer. I successfully installed it, but when I go print it says it is offline even though it is on and it shows the correct IP address. What am I missing?

Have you connected via USB at the new location, and if so did it work correctly? If so then try connecting via wireless.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Is the wireless system in your new location encrypted? If it is, you're going to have to enter the password or pass phrase the first time so that it's remembered in your Keychain. Just entering the IP address is not enough.
