Wireless Network Installation
To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■
Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■
WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.

Troubleshooting
If you have problems setting up or using your product on a network, check these
sections for help:
■
“Setup Problems” below
■
“Printing Problems” on page 34
■
“Scanning Problems” on page 35
This section also explains how to print a Network Status Sheet (see page 36) and
reset network settings (page 37).
Setup Problems
Software installation failed
Reset the printer’s network settings (see page 37) and perform a first time
installation of the printer software. (See page 3 for wireless installations or page 15
for wired installations.)
Cannot connect to or find the wireless router or access point
■
Try connecting to the wireless router or access point with your computer or
another device to confirm that it is working correctly.
■
Make sure that the printer is within range of your wireless router or access
point.
■
Avoid placing the printer near a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or
large metal object such as a filing cabinet.
32 Troubleshooting
■
Make sure there aren’t any access restrictions (such as MAC address filtering)
set on the wireless router or access point. If access restrictions are set, register
the printer’s MAC address on the router or access point. Print a Network
Status Sheet (see page 36) to obtain the MAC address. Then see your router or
access point’s documentation for instructions.
■
Check to see if your wireless router or access point is set to not broadcast its
network name (SSID). If so, you will need to enter the SSID manually in the
printer’s setup software. If your wireless router or access point has wireless
security enabled, you will also need to know what kind of security it is using.
■
Make sure that you entered the correct WEP key or passphrase for your
wireless network. WEP keys are either ASCII or hexadecimal. If your
passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to enter them
correctly.
■
If you see the message “The combination of IP address and subnet mask is
invalid”, try the following solutions:
■
If your router or access point is set to assign IP addresses using DHCP, try
setting the printer’s IP address setting to Auto(DHCP). (See page 11 for
wireless installations or page 21 for wired installations.)
■
If you want to manually configure the printer’s IP address, click Change
when you see the Current IP Address Status screen and enter the IP
address and subnet mask.
■
Make sure your computer is connected to your wireless router or access
point. See your router or access point’s documentation for details.
■
Set a unique IP address for your printer. All IP addresses are written in
segments of four numerical values. The last segment must be set to a
unique numerical value (between 1 and 254). When the router is set to
assign IP addresses using DHCP, set the printer’s IP address to a value that
doesn’t conflict with the IP address range assigned by the DHCP server.
For example:
IP address of your router or access point: 192.168.1.1
IP address of your printer: 192.168.1.3
For the subnet mask, 255.255.255.0 is normally used for small-scale
networks (all devices on your network should use the same subnet mask).
Also, when a gateway value is set, use the same value as the IP address for
your wireless router or access point.
Troubleshooting 33
Cannot communicate on a wired LAN
Make sure that the wireless setting on the printer’s control panel is set to Disable.
Select Setup from the Home menu, select Network Settings, choose Wireless
LAN Setup, and select Disable. If it is set to Enable, the printer will not
communicate using a wired connection.
The printer does not appear in the Add Printer window (Mac OS X)
Make sure the printer driver was installed correctly and that your computer’s
TCP/IP settings are configured correctly.
Printing Problems
Cannot print over the network
■
Print a Network Status Sheet (see page 36) and verify that the network
settings are correct.
■
Make sure that the printer is turned on, and that your router, access point,
switch, or hub’s link LED for the port the printer is connected to is on or
flashing. If the link LED is off, try the following.
■
Make sure the Ethernet cable is securely connected to both the printer
and your router, access point, switch, or hub.
■
Try connecting to another port on your router, access point, switch, or
hub.
■
Try connecting the printer to another router, access point, switch or hub.
■
Try connecting the printer to your router, access point, switch, or hub
with another Ethernet cable.
■
When using TCP/IP, make sure the printer’s IP address is set correctly for your
network. If your network does not assign IP addresses using DHCP, you will
need to set the IP address manually.
■
For wired connections, print a Network Status Sheet (see page 36). If the
Network Status says Disconnect, check your Ethernet cable connections and
try turning the printer off and back on again.
■
For wireless connections, print a Network Status Sheet (see page 36). If the
Link Status says Disconnect, make sure that the wireless router or access point
is turned on and that the settings are correct for your wireless network.
34 Troubleshooting
■
Reset the printer’s network settings (see page 37) and perform a first-time
installation of the printer software. (See page 3 for wireless installations or
page 15 for wired installations.)
Printing is slow or the print is cut off
Print a Network Status Sheet (see page 36) and check the Signal Condition. If it’s
poor, try moving the printer closer to your wireless router or access point. Avoid
placing the printer next to a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or large
metal objects such as a filing cabinet.
A dial-up connection dialog box appears when printing with EpsonNet
Print
If you use a dial-up connection for Internet access, you will see this message every
time you print. Try connecting to the Internet using a LAN connection or set your
dial-up connection to dial manually (Never dial a connection).
Scanning Problems
Cannot find the scanner or start Epson Scan
■
If you’re using Mac OS X, make sure that you configured the Epson Scan
network settings (see page 29).
■
If network communication was interrupted while starting Epson Scan, exit
Epson Scan, and restart it after a few seconds. If Epson Scan cannot restart,
turn the printer off and back on, and then try restarting Epson Scan. Check
the Timeout Setting in EPSON Scan Settings. For details, see the Epson
Scan Help.
■
If you have a firewall or Internet security software installed, the search feature
in EPSON Scan Settings may not work correctly. In this case, print a
Network Status Sheet (see page 36), click EPSON Scan Settings > Add >
Enter address, and enter the IP address manually.
■
If you are scanning a large document at high resolution, a communication
error may occur. If the scan did not complete, lower the resolution.
Troubleshooting 35
■
The printer’s IP Address may have changed. If the printer is set to obtain an IP
address automatically, the IP address may change each time the printer is
turned on. If the IP address has changed, you will need to repeat the steps in
“Configure Epson Scan Network Settings” on page 29. To keep the IP address
from changing, try the following: always power on your network devices in
the same order, always keep the printer on, or set your DHCP server to reserve
an IP address for the printer (see your router’s documentation for details).
