My Brother wireless printer doesn't work after resetting my laptop.

I have a MacBook running OS X 10.6.8 and a Brother HL-2270DW printer. This morning I had to reset my entire system using Time Machine; everything else is up and running, but the printer doesn't work. I've tried reinstalling it with the printer setup disc, but the laptop won't detect our wireless connection when I get to that step (it suggests disabling my personal firewall, but I don't have one set up.), and the laptop won't let me add any printers in System Preferences. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated, because I've spent all afternoon trying to figure this out.

Wireless Document Scanning - is it possible on the cheap?

I want to scan documents over a wireless network... I see bunches of wireless all-in-one printers on the market, but I cannot seem to get a definitive answer as to whether any, all, or none of them can also scan over the wireless network. I'd like to get specific makes and models, please! [more inside]
