Q:
How do I connect my product to my wireless network using the buttons on the control panel?
A:
You'll need to know the SSID (name of the wireless network that is set up on your router or access point) and if security is enabled, the WEP key or WPA passphrase (wireless network password) before connecting the product to your wireless network.

This information is stored in your network's router or access point and you may be able to access it by logging onto the router or access point from your computer and checking its setup screens. See the instruction manual for your router or access point for details. If you are unable to access the information, contact the person who set up your network or the manufacturer of your router or access point for support. You'll need to know the SSID and if security is enabled, the wireless network password before you set up the product on a wireless network. (Epson will not be able to provide this information to you.)

Note:
The network name and security key or passphrase are case-sensitive. Be sure to correctly note uppercase, lowercase, and numeric/special letters.

Once you have the above information, follow these steps to connect the product to your wireless network:

  1. Press Setup.


  2. Select Network Settings.


  3. Select Wireless LAN Setup.


  4. Select Setup Wizard. A list of all available SSIDs appears on the LCD screen.


  5. Select your SSID from the list.

    Note:
    The product will display all wireless networks available by the order of their signal strength, and your SSID will probably be listed at the top of the list. The SSID name is set by the router or access point, and the default name is usually the brand name of the router or access point.

    If your SSID is not listed, your router or access point may be set to not broadcast its network name.


  6. Do one of the following:

    If your wireless network doesn't have security enabled, continue with step 7.

    If your wireless network has security enabled, enter your network password, then press  Start.


  7. A message appears indicating if the connection was successful as well as asking if you want want to print a network connection report.


  8. Press  Start if you want to print the report or  Stop/Clear Settings if not.
