Introduction
About Your Network Interface
The EpsonNet Wireless 802.11b/g and 10/100 Base Tx Ext. Print
Server is an external network interface that connect to the USB
port of an Epson device (such as a printer or all-in-one). These
network interfaces allow you to create a wireless or wired
connection respectively, between the Epson device and a local
area network.
When connected to a wireless network, a radio signal is
transmitted over the network whenever you send a job to the
device. Then the device prints or scans the file when the network
interface receives the radio signal directly from a computer or
from an access point.
This network interface is Wi-Fi certified for interoperability with
other 802.11-compliant products when connected to wireless
networks.
Because the network interface supports multiple protocols and
automatically detects protocols on your network, you can print
from Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® Macintosh®, UNIX®, and
IBM® OS/2 applications.
Use Easy Install to easily configure the network interface for use
on a TCP/IP network. If you are using Windows computer, you
can also set up the computer for printing and scanning with the
software.
Use EpsonNet Config, the configuration utility provided with
your product, to quickly and easily configure the network
interface to use a range of protocols such as TCP/IP, NetBEUI,
AppleTalk®, IPP, and SNMP.

Introduction
Note:
The EpsonNet Config utility configures the network interface to work
only with protocols that exist on your network. This does not imply that
you can use all of the above mentioned protocols on your wired or
wireless network, or operating system. The protocols that the network
interface can use may vary depending on the operating system and the
network configuration.
About This Guide
This User’s Guide contains information about using the network
interface on a network. It includes how to set up the network
interface, install the configuration software, and modify network
settings of your device and computer.
For information about your device, see the manual shipped with

Introduction
19
i. DC-IN connector
This is an external power supply connector for the AC adapter
shipped with the network interface. Plug or unplug the power
cord of the network interface from a wall outlet to turn the
network interface on or off.
j. Security lock
You can pass a commercially available theft-prevention cable
through the security lock hole to secure the network interface to
a table or pillar. This network interface is compatible with the
Microsaver Security System manufactured by Kensington.
The IEEE 802.11g Communication Standard
The network interface supports the IEEE 802.11b/g
communication standard. It is compatible with other IEEE
802.11b/g compliant products.
An IEEE 802.11b/g WLAN (wireless local area network) operates
within the 2.4 GHz ISM band. It divides the 2.4 GHz into 13 or 14
channels using Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), and
uses Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance
(CSMA/CA) to avoid packet collision. Both CSMA/CA with
ACK and CSMA/CA with RTS/CTS are supported.
Wi-Fi certification
This wireless network interface is
Wi-Fi certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance
(WFA). The WFA certification ensures
full product interoperability with
other Wi-Fi certified products. For
more information on other Wi-Fi
certified products, go to
http://www.wi-fi.org.
20
Introduction
Wireless Environment
Operating modes
You can configure the network interface for the Infrastructure
mode or the Ad Hoc mode.
In the Infrastructure mode, both wireless and wired computers
can communicate through an access point to send data to the
network interface.
HUB
Note:
Some access points or routers support only the TCP/IP protocol. If you
use this product with a protocol other than TCP/IP, make sure the
protocols are supported by the access point or router.
Introduction
21
In the Ad Hoc mode, a network interface and computers
wirelessly communicate directly with each other, without using
an access point.
Security
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a security protocol for
wireless network. Data is encrypted using the WEP Key
providing the security of your wireless network. You must set the
same WEP Key to the network interface and the access point.
The network interface supports a 64-bit or 128-bit encryption key,
and you can use either hexadecimal or ASCII characters.
WPA-PSK (TKIP) is a Wi-Fi security with a strong encryption
algorithm as well as user authentication. It provides a high
security that user data remains protected and that only authorized
users may access the network.
WPA2-PSK (AES) is an encryption format that combines AES
(Advanced Encryption Standard), the newer format of WPA-PSK
(TKIP) and has the stronger encryption.
22
Introduction
Note:
The wireless transmission speed is reduced when WEP,
WPA-PSK(TKIP), or WPA2-PSK (AES) is enabled because time is
required for encryption and decryption.
SSID is a unique identifier to specify a wireless LAN. All devices
and access points connected to a specific wireless LAN must use
the same SSID to communicate with devices on the wireless LAN.
If the wireless LAN access point and the PC do not share the same
SSID they will not be able to communicate with each other.
Radio signal range
The data transfer rate of the network interface depends on the
environment where the network interface is located.
Note:
The wireless transmission speed decreases as the distance between the
network interface and the computer or the access point increases.
Terms and Concepts
2.4 GHz range -- the frequency spectrum assigned by the
organization such as IC to WLAN systems.
Access point -- a device which connects wireless LAN terminals
to a network, relaying signals between wireless devices or serving
as a bridge between wired and wireless networks.
Ad Hoc mode -- a mode that allows wireless LAN terminals to
communicate directly with each other without using a wireless
LAN access point.
AES -- Advanced Encryption Standard, an encryption standard
for WPA that is replacing WEP. AES provides stronger encryption
than TKIP.
Introduction
23
AOSS (AirStation One-touch Secure System) -- a
technology that makes configuring connection
and security settings during wireless network
setup easier. For details on AOSS, see the Buffalo,
Inc. website at http://www.buffalotech.com/.
Configuration -- a prepared set of conditions for proper operation
of a device. Configuring the network interface is to prepare it to
work with protocols available on a network.
DHCP -- a dynamic host configuration protocol. It is a protocol
that assigns dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network.
EAP -- Extensible Authentication Protocol, authentication
protocol used in the IEEE 802.1x standard.
EtherTalk --the communication protocol of AppleTalk governing
Ethernet transmissions.
ftp -- a TCP/IP application protocol for file transfer.
IEEE 802.1x-- an IEEE standard that provides authentication for
wired/wireless networks. IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g are
standards for the 2.4 GHz range of WLANs.
Infrastructure mode -- a wireless network mode. It allows both
wireless and wired computers to send print jobs to the device
through an access point.
lpd -- a TCP/IP remote printing protocol application.
Open system authentication -- a wireless access point
authentication protocol under which the wireless node submits
an authentication request to the wireless access point which
accepts the connection, essentially without authenticating it.
Pre-Shared key -- the basic key used to generate the encryption
keys used by WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES).
24
Introduction
Print queue -- a location where a print job is stored as a file, until
the network interface sends the job to the assigned device.
Protocol -- a rule that controls how data or information is
exchanged through a network. Computers and software cannot
communicate with each other using different protocols.
Roaming -- the ability to move the wireless station from one access
point to another without losing the connection or interrupting the
service.
Security type -- allows selections of a security level in
infrastructure mode appropriate to the user environment.
SSID (or ESSID) -- Service Set Identifier (or Extended Service Set
Identifier), a unique identifier to specify a WLAN. All devices and
access points connected to a specific WLAN must use the same
SSID. An ESSID is used for the network that extends among
multiple access points.
TCP/IP -- Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, a
layer of protocols that provides communications between nodes
on a network.
TKIP -- Temporal Key Integrity Protocol, an encryption standard
for WPA that is replacing WEP. A distinctive feature is that the
shared key is changed at specified intervals.
WEP -- Wired Equivalent Privacy, a security protocol for WLANs
defined in the IEEE 802.11b/g standard. WEP provides security
by encrypting data over radio waves.
WEP key -- a shared key algorithm for encrypting data
Transmitted packets are encrypted with a shared key called the
WEP key. Decryption of encrypted packets by the recipient
requires the same WEP key that was used for transmission.
WLAN -- Wireless Local Area Network.
Introduction
25
WPA-PSK(TKIP/AES) -- a Wi-Fi encryption protocol with a
stronger encryption algorithm than WEP. The devices and access
points have to share the Pre-Shared key. The protocol that uses
AES is called WPA2-PSK and has the stronger encryption than
TKIP.

Auto, an IP address is automatically assigned to the network
interface via DHCP. If you want to set the IP address
manually, select Manual.
Note:
❏ The network administrator must check any changes made to the
IP address settings.
❏ When Auto is selected, an IP address can be acquired via
DHCP. To use the DHCP server, make sure it is installed on
your computer and correctly configured. See your operating
system’s online help for detailed instructions.
❏ If Set Using Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA)
is enabled, a private IP address is automatically assigned to the
network interface even when there are no DHCP servers on
your system or your network.
About the Software
123
❏ If the Dynamic DNS function is not supported, we recommend
that you select Manual and then enter an IP address. This is
because if you select Auto, the IP address of the network
interface changes every time you turn on the device so that you
need to change the printer port setting accordingly.
5. To assign an IP address manually, enter the IP address, the
subnet mask, and the default gateway. Be sure the IP address
does not conflict with any other devices on the network.
Note:
If there is a server or a router functioning as a gateway, enter the IP
address of the server or the router for the gateway address. If there
is no gateway, leave the default values there.
6. If you want to get a private address between 169.254.1.1 and
169.254.254.254 automatically when an IP address cannot be
obtained by the DHCP server, select Enable for Set Using
Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA); otherwise, select
Disable.
7. When setting an IP address using the ping command, select
Enable for Set Using PING. Select Disable when setting an
IP address with EpsonNet Config; this prevents any
unexpected change of the IP address.
Note:
Be sure to select Disable when not using ping; this prevents an
unexpected change of the IP address by EpsonNet WebManager.
8. Select Enable for Acquire DNS Server Address
Automatically if you want to acquire the DNS server address
using the DHCP server.
If you want to enter the DNS server address manually, select
Disable and then enter the IP address of the DNS server.

EpsonNet Internet Print
About EpsonNet Internet Print
EpsonNet Internet Print is a utility program that supports
printing across the Internet using Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).
Since the network interface supports IPP, Internet printing is
possible using this utility. You can print or make printer settings
from Windows 98/95/NT 4.0 systems that can access the Internet.
You can also print via a proxy server using this utility.
Before using the EpsonNet Internet Print utility, be sure to read
the Readme.txt file found in the EpsonNet Internet Print folder.
This file contains the latest information on the EpsonNet Internet
Print.
Note:
❏ EPSON Status Monitor is a utility program that monitors your
device and gives you information about its current status. Because
this utility does not support IPP, devices connected to the Internet
cannot be monitored with EPSON Status Monitor. If you use
EpsonNet Internet Print on a computer which has EPSON Status
Monitor installed, a communication error message may appear
when you view printer properties. To avoid this, click the Optional
Settings tab in the target printer’s properties dialog box and click
the Update the Printer Option Information Manually radio
button.
❏ For Windows XP/Me/2000, use the OS standard IPP client for the
Internet printing.

Settings for UNIX Users
Introduction to UNIX Settings
This chapter explains how to set up the device for different UNIX
systems using the lpr command.
Your device is able to function as a remote printer on systems
using TCP/IP Ethernet transfer with lpr remote printing protocol,
or standard ftp (file transfer protocol).
Note:
Because this device does not convert data into the printer control
language, a printer driver and filter are necessary for each system.
lpr filters
Filters for lpr are controlled by the name given to the remote
printer. When setting up an lpr printer entry, a name is entered
for:
❏ the local printer name to be redirected
❏ the host name of the station to which the print is sent
❏ the remote printer name (name of the printer port on the
remote station)
Many different remote printer names may be set up, all directed
to the same Ethernet remote host, and each is given a different
local printer name to be redirected. Different types of print jobs
may be sent to different printer names, which will then all print
out on the same printer, through the same Ethernet interface, but
using different filters.
194
Tips for Administrator
The remote printer name options used to invoke the different
filters are as follows:
lpb
Binary files (no filters)
lpa
ASCII files (carriage returns at line ends)
lpbf
Binary file with form feed at file end
lpaf
ASCII file with form feed at file end
All other remote printer name options will be treated the same as
lpb.
The following is an example of sending a text file, “txtfile”, via lpr
with a form feed appended:
% lpr -plpaf txtfile
Setting Up Different UNIX Systems Using the lpr
Command
The following UNIX systems can print using the standard lpr
command.
SunSoft Solaris 2.4 or later
SunOS 4.1.4 or later
IBM AIX 3.2.5 or later and 4.1.3 or later
HP-UX 9.05 or later
SCO UNIX 4.2 or later
Setting up for SunSoft Solaris 2.4 or later
In the following steps, substitute the name that your device will
be known by for HOSTNAME, and the name by which you want
your device to be known for Rprinter.
Tips for Administrator
195
1. Add the IP address and printer host name to the \etc\hosts
file.
For example:
22.33.44.55 HOSTNAME
2. Define the host name as a print server.
For example:
lpsystem -t bsd HOSTNAME

Instructions on Using DHCP
When you assign an IP address to the network interface using the
DHCP function, you need to change the printer port setting every
time you turn on the device.
We recommend that you make one of the settings below on the
DHCP server or the router and then assign a valid IP address to
the network interface:
❏ Assign a valid IP address to the MAC address of the network
interface.
❏ Assign an IP address that is within the range of the
assignment of the DHCP server. Do not let the DHCP server
assign the IP address to any other devices.
If you cannot make the above settings on the DHCP server, make
one of the settings below:
❏ Assign an IP address that is not within the range of the
assignment of the DHCP server.
❏ Assign an IP address that is within the range of the
assignment of the DHCP server. In this case, you must turn
on the network interface first, and then turn on the DHCP
server.
Tips for Administrator
203
Setting an IP Address Using the arp/ping
Command
If you are using UNIX or OS/2, you need to use the arp and ping
command to set the IP address of the network interface. You can
also use these commands with Windows, if you have correctly
installed TCP/IP networking on these systems.
Note:
❏ Make sure that the Set using PING function is enabled on the
TCP/IP menu in EpsonNet Config. If this function is disabled, you
cannot set the IP address using the arp/ping command.
❏ Make sure the network interface and the computer are in the same
segment.
Before you start, you need the following information:
❏ A valid IP address for the network interface. Ask your
network administrator for an IP address which does not cause
conflicts with any other device on the network. If you are the
network administrator, choose an address within your subnet
which does not conflict with any other device.
❏ The MAC (Ethernet hardware) address of the network
interface. You can find out the MAC address on a status sheet.
204
Tips for Administrator
Checking the LAN
First, you need to check that the computer can reach to other
computer in the same segment, as follows:
1. Set the default gateway to the host on which you are setting
up the network interface.
If there is a server or a router which acts as a gateway, enter
the address of the server or the router. If there is no gateway,
enter the IP address of your computer as a gateway address.
2. Assume that you want to reach to the computer having the IP
address “192.168.100.101”. Check that the computer is
reachable by “pinging” it from the command line:
ping 192.168.100.101
3. If the computer is reachable, you can see the following result
(the exact form of the message depends on your operating
system, and the time may vary):
64 bytes from 192:168:100:101:icmp_seq=0. Time=34.ms
4. If the computer is unreachable, you may see something like
this:
PING 192:168:100:101:56 data bytes
If you press Ctrl+C, you may see something like this:
192:168:100:101 PING Statistics
3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received,
100% packet loss
Again, the exact wording of the message you see may differ
from this, depending on your operating system. If you cannot
“ping” the computer, check the following:
❏ The address in the ping command is correct.
❏ The Ethernet connection to the computer has been made
correctly, and all hubs, routers, etc. are switched on.
Tips for Administrator
205
Setting and checking the new IP address
To set the new IP address of the network interface which you have
obtained from your network administrator, use the ping
command and arp command with the -s flag (create an ARP
entry).
Note:
In the following procedure, we assume that the MAC address of your
network interface is 00:00:48:93:00:00 (hexadecimal), and that the IP
address which you will be assigning is 192.168.100.201 (decimal).
Substitute your values for these addresses when you type in the
commands.
1. From the command line, type:
Example: arp -s 192.168.100.201 00-00-48-93-00-00
2. Execute the ping command to set the IP address by pinging it:
Example: ping 192.168.100.201
3. The network interface should now respond to the ping. If it
does not, you may have incorrectly typed the MAC address
or the IP address in the arp -s command. Double-check and
try again. If none of these actions are effective, re-initialize the
network interface and try again.
4. Print a status sheet to check whether the new IP address has
been assigned to the network interface.
Note:
When the IP address is set by the ping command, the subnet mask
is automatically changed by the class of the IP address. To change
the subnet mask and the default gateway according to your network
environment, use EpsonNet Config on Windows operating systems
or EpsonNet Config in Macintosh.

Instructions on Using a Dial-Up Router
This section describes instructions on using a dial-up router.
If DHCP is used to assign an IP address of the network interface
and the Dynamic DNS function is not supported, you need to
change the printer port setting every time you turn on the device.
Therefore, we recommend that you set a valid IP address for the
network interface by using one of the following methods.
❏ Set the IP address for the network interface manually. Use
EpsonNet Config. See the EpsonNet Config User’s Guide for
details.
❏ Specify the network interface by using the bind of DHCP
function.
❏ Set the exclusive address of the DHCP function.
Note:
❏ Use NetBEUI printing if you do not want to go through these steps.
❏ See the manual of the Dial-Up router for more information on scope
range, bind, exclusive address of the DHCP function.
