Q:
How do I set up my all-in-one for an Ad-Hoc connection so I can connect to it wirelessly without using a wireless router or access point?
A:
Follow the steps below to set up your all-in-one for an Ad-Hoc (peer-to-peer) connection.

Note: Epson recommends using an Ad-Hoc connection only when a wireless router or access point is unavailable. If a wireless router or access point is available, follow the instructions in the Network Installation Guide instead to set up your printer wirelessly.

  1. Reset the printer’s network settings.


  2. If necessary, press the Home button on the printer control panel to return to the Home menu.


  3. Select Setup.



  4. Select Network Settings.



  5. Select Wireless LAN Setup, select Yes, select Enable, then select Manual Wireless LAN Setup.



  6. When you see this screen, press OK.



  7. Select Yes, select Ad Hoc Mode, then select Enter SSID.



  8. Use the arrow buttons on the printer’s control panel to create a unique network name (SSID) to identify your printer.



    Important: Network names are case-sensitive. Be sure to enter upper- or lowercase letters as necessary.


  9. Leave the channel set to its default (#11) and press OK.



  10. Select None for the security setting.



  11. When you see a screen like this one, verify that the settings are correct. If you need to change a setting, press Back until you see the setting you need to change.



  12. Once you have verified that your network settings are correct, press OK to save the settings and return to the Network Settings menu.



  13. Press the Home button to return to the Home menu.


  14. On your wireless computer, connect to the wireless network name (SSID) you created for your printer (see your computer or wireless adapter’s documentation for details).


  15. Once you’ve established a wireless connection, install the software on your computer.
