How Do You Want to Set Up?

 
  • Connect through a router (Recommended)

This connection method is available when you have an access point (wireless router) at your home or office. We recommend this connection method since you can use the Epson Connect service over the internet.


 
  • Connect Directly (Wi-Fi Direct)

Select this connection method if you do not have an access point (wireless router). Connect the printer and the smart device directly. You can connect up to four smart devices to the printer, but internet services are unavailable since it is a local network.


 
  • Connect to a printer that is already connected to your network

If your printer has already been connected to the network, reconnect the smart device to the same network as the printer. The printer is then available from the smart device.

 
  • If your smart device is connected to a dedicated access point (wireless router)

If there is another access point (wireless router) for connecting to the computer, connect the smart device to that access point. If there are no other access points (wireless routers) other than the access point for connecting to the smart device, connect the printer to that access point.
Select "Connect through an Access Point (Recommended)" when the printer is not connected to the network. Select "Connect to a printer that is connected to the network" when the printer is already connected to the network.


 
  • If you want to connect the smart device to the printer but do not want to connect it to the same network as the printer

Connect the smart device to the printer directly (Wi-Fi Direct). The printer is then available on a Wi-Fi connection and a direct connection (Wi-Fi Direct).


 
  • If you are using tethering (internet sharing) on the mobile device

You cannot connect to the printer from the smart device when you are using tethering on the smart device. Disable tethering, and then connect to the printer.
Select "Connect through an Access Point (Recommended)" when the printer is not connected to the network. Select "Connect to a printer that is connected to the network" when the printer is already connected to the network.
