Brother HL-2270DW and DD-WRT

The Brother HL-2270DW is an excellent and inexpensive laser printer with support for both wireless network connection and duplex printing. DD-WRT is a useful firmware replacement for many network devices. At first, the two did not want to play together but I figured out that the network settings for DW-WRT need to be:

  • Security Mode: WPA2 Personal
  • WPA Algorithms: AES

The key is the second option – if it is set to TKIP or TKIP+AES, the Brother printer cannot successfully connect via wireless.
