Hi, it's an Epson Stylus SX425W and it's wireless. It works standalone. I have checked that print manager is not on 'print to file' mode. My laptop tells me that it's installed (showing pic with green tick). No error messages. I'm sure it just needs me to tick the correct box somewhere, somehow but it's not obvious to a mere mortal like me, thanks for reading.
Usually this problem occurs because either the password or WEP number is incorrectly entered. Did you use the installation disk with the wizard? Did you have a print out at the end of the installation to say whether the set up was successful or not? Is the wifi light on your printer illuminated? Does your printer and router have the WPS facility whereby you pair them by pressing a button?
Many people connect their wifi printer at first by using a usb cable - this has the benefit of taking the wifi details from the pc. If you are setting it up manually, using the wizard then you will need the WEP/WPA number and your router password.
Have a look at this video about wifi set up of Epson printers, although not for your specific model.
Thank you, all seems well now except for 'IP address check' and 'detailed IP set up address'. report reads; incorrect IP address is assigned to the printer, so how do I enter the correct IP and where do I get it from?, cheers
laptop says printer is installed, printer gave 100% passes on printout, but printer will not print test page from laptop and I have a stack of stuff in the print file.
my other printer is telling me that servicable parts are due for service, can I fix that, as I am desperate now!!??
