I have an Epson ET and I connected it through wireless to my desktop. But now my laptop can't find it. Why can't I see the printer on my laptop? I'm glad I'm not the only one to have problems with wireless printers. My approach now is to completely uninstall the printer driver and start again following the instructions from scratch. The Canon wireless printer we have works very well but there is a considerable lag compared with a usb connection.
USB is much easier to set up too but I have several devices I can print from using wireless. Okay, so I managed to find the printer on the laptop and installed it. But now I'm having a problem with the network itself.
The laptop will find the desktop and connect to the network intermittently, but then I'll lose it and the printer will say offline.
I have no idea why it's doing this. The wireless works fine as the Internet is always on, it just doesn't want to stay connected to the network. Go to the Epson site, find the support or download link, and download the firmware for the ET model. Not the driver nor any software for the PC, but the 'firmware' that runs inside the printer.
There should be instructions on How To Install. I'm assuming I should install this on the laptop? Didn't know if that made any difference. Follow the steps below to enable Epson Connect for your Epson printer in Windows: Make sure your product is set up with a wireless or Ethernet connection as described on the Start Here sheet for your product. Open the Printer troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel.
In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under Hardware and Sound, click Use a printer. If Windows can't detect a printer that you want to use, follow these steps to find and add the printer manually: Click Add a printer. In the Add Printer wizard, select Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.
On the Searching for available printers page, click The printer that I want isn't listed. Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish. The same issue to me. I found Epson printer on Android, but I can't find it on Windows I add permissions for this program on Windows Firewall. So the issue is not my network, not drivers, but that Epson Connect Printer Setup program.
And foto printing software is terrible too. It changes foto quality. It changes foto quality even during preview. I don't know where developers have found the drivers foto management. That drivers are terrible. I develop foto editing tools 5 years ago, and I found free drivers 10 times better when Epson is using for foto editing, size changing and so so. Hi Mindaugas This thread is a year old. It would be better to open up a new thread of your own. Welcome to techspot forum.
