Can't connect to wireless printer....
« on: February 22, 2014, 12:00:56 PM »
I just purchased a Epson 2540 Printer/copier/scanner/fax. It's wireless, the set up went fine. Followed the instructions, it connected to the wifi just fine. I was able to find the printer, connect to it, and print from my phone (Droid Razr Maxx). I can connect to the printer if I plug my laptop to the printer, then it works, but when I try to add the printer wirelessly, it can't find the printer.

Toshiba win 7 laptop. Any ideas?

I have to set up wireless printers for my job... My only suggestion is make sure your laptop network settings allow you to discover and connect to other devices and make sure you're connected to the WiFi. If that's all correct I usually have to rerun the installation software or use the windows "add a printer" tool again. Sometimes the manufacturer website will have an updated driver that fixes some random compatibility issue too.
