My Mac became unable to print today so I uninstalled the driver. When I try adding it back, the Add Printer box shows the printer but when I select the appropriate driver I get "An error occurred while trying to add the selected printer. Error:-30886".


For what it's worth, the printer is a Brother HL-2170W, using over wifi. I have reinstalled the driver software from Brother's site, so it should be good. The printer tells me the wifi link is okay.


And no, I wasn't upgrading the OS today.


Any help much appreciated.
