Parent topic: Solving Problems
Solutions When You Cannot Connect Projectors (Wireless)
When you cannot connect the computer and the projector over a wireless network, try the following
solutions. If you cannot resolve the problem, contact your network administrator.
• Check the status of the external devices used for the network connection or the environment in which
the network devices and the projector are located.
• Connect the specified wireless LAN unit to the projector securely.
• Check for any obstacles between the access point and the computer or projector, and change their
position to improve communication. Sometimes, indoor environments prevent the projector from
being found in a search.
• Set the radio strength for the network devices to the maximum.
• Set the IP address, the subnet mask, and the gateway address for the access point correctly.
• Make sure the Wireless LAN conforms to 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n. The Wireless
LAN is not compatible with other standards such as 802.11.
• Check the projector's network settings.
• Set the Connection Mode setting to Advanced.
Go to Network > Network Configuration > Wireless LAN > Connection Mode.
49
• Set the computer, the access point, and the projector to the same SSID.
Go to Network > Network Configuration > Wireless LAN > SSID.
• Set DHCP to Off. When DHCP is set to On, it may take some time to enter LAN standby status if an
available DHCP server is not found.
Go to Network > Network Configuration > Wireless LAN > DHCP or Network > Network
Configuration > Wireless LAN > IP Settings > DHCP.
• Set the IP address, the subnet mask, and the gateway address for the projector correctly.
• Set Wireless LAN Power to On.
Go to Network > Network Configuration > Wireless LAN > Wireless LAN Power.
• Set the wireless LAN system to meet the standards supported by the access point.
Go to Network > Network Configuration > Wireless LAN > Wireless LAN system or Wireless
LAN Sys.
• When you enable the security setting, set the same passphrase to the access point, the computer,
and the projector.
• Close network settings on the projector, and then return to the LAN standby screen.
• Check the computer's network settings.
• If the wireless LAN adapter is not installed on your computer, install a wireless LAN card on your
computer.
• Enable the wireless LAN setting or AirPort on your computer.
• Connect to the access point to which the projector is connected.
• Turn off the firewall. If you do not want to turn it off, register the firewall as an exception. Make the
necessary settings to open the ports. The ports used by this software are "3620", "3621", and
"3629".
• Check the access point settings.
• Set connection permission at the access point to allow projectors to connect if any functions that
block connections, such as MAC Address restrictions and port restrictions, are set to the access
point.
• Check the software settings.
• Select the network adapter you are using from Switch LAN on the Set options screen. If the
computer has multiple LAN environments, a connection cannot be established unless the network
adapter is selected correctly.
50
• If you cannot find the projector you want to connect to using Automatic search, select Manual
search to specify the IP address.
• Make sure the projector supports the EasyMP Multi PC Projection version being used. Install
EasyMP Multi PC Projection from the EPSON Projector Software CD-ROM supplied with the
projector.
• Install the latest version of EasyMP Multi PC Projection on all computers. The maximum number of
computer connections and the availability of the moderator function varies depending on the
projector model, no matter which version of EasyMP Multi PC Projection you are using.
• When another user is already connected, you can only connect to projectors in the same mirroring
group as that selected by the other user. Select a projector from the same mirroring group as the
user who is already connected, or select a projector that is in standby status.
