How can I setup my printer on a network?
The Stylus 1500 supports optional LocalTalk or Ethernet interface boards.

LocalTalk interface board, Type B, (C823121) allows a Macintosh family computer to use an Epson printer via an AppleTalk network. Once the I/F card and appropriate driver are installed, the printer becomes a standard LocalTalk device that does not require special command sequences to initiate print jobs. This also requires a LocalTalk cable.

Multi-Protocol Ethernet Interface Board (C823572) adds networking capabilities to EPSON printers and allows a printer to be used as a shared resource in a network. It eliminates the requirement for a dedicated PC print server or extended print server box. Compatible with all EPSON Type B printers. Supports Novell Netware, Apple EtherTalk, Microsoft Windows NT or UNIX TCP-IP network. Includes Board, BNCY connector, Guide/Drivers. Uses 10 BASE - 2/10 BASE-T cables.

Multiprotocol 10/100 Ethernet, Type B Print Server with AC Adapter (C823642) converts Epson printers equipped with Type-B slot to a network printer. Supports Windows NT, 98, 95, 3.x, Macintosh, UNIX and OS/2 users.Network protocols include single print server for 100Base-TX and 10Base-T networks and simultaneous data transmission of multiple protocol stacks TCP/IP, IPX, NDS and SNMP. Includes Epson status Monitor @ printer and job status monitoring utility.

Multiprotocol Series 2 Type B Ethernet Print Server (C823622) lets you connect your Epson printers directly to the network. Compatible with Microsoft Windows 3.1x, Windows 95 and 98, Windows NT 3.51 or later, OS12, Macintosh 7.x & 8x. This server installs inside your printer, requiring no additional desk space. Novell tested and approved.

If you are strictly using Macs in your network then you can just get a LocalTalk interface card. Unfortunately, LocalTalk is a very slow way of transferring information. A LocalTalk connection runs at less than 250 kb per second, w step 1 and 2.

If the problem still persists try the following steps to run with the extension off:

1) Hold down on the shift key and click on Restart, make sure to hold down shift key until message state extension is off.
2) Reselect the printer in chooser and make sure Apple Talk is inactive.
