Airport Extreme and Brother HL-2270DW

by jeffplay1 / November 2, 2011 4:32 AM PDT

Have I wasted my money buying an HL-2270DW for its wireless
capabilities? I tried adding it to my WLAN having an Airport Extreme, 2nd
Generation, and the Brother reports that it cannot detect a WLAN access
point/router that has WPS or AOSS enabled. Is there anyway I can use printer's wireless capabilities? Jeff
