Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer


I bought a new Epson SX405 wifi printer with an Edimax Printer Server.I have been trying to get this going wirelessly for weeks. It did work once with the Epson helpline. The next day it was not working. Even with the printer server connected to my Router (Siemens SE587) the message is 'printer server not found, check connections'' The connections are ok.
I have spoken to my ISP (Tiscali) for infomation on the router but they keep telling me to talk to the printer people.
I am wondering if the router is 'blocking' the server.
Epson sent me a new Printer Server
Norton told me how to turn off the firewall
I have turned off start-up programs
None of this has worked.
Can you please help?

    I have the exact same problem. I keep getting "Print server cannot be found. Check your network connections". The network connections are fine. No matter what I try (turned off the firewall, changed encryption from WEP to WPA and renamed wireless router to personalise, uninstalled printer software and reintsalled again) nothing works. My wiresless router is a netopia. This Epson is going back before it goes out the window.

    Exactly the same problem.  Works well as a standard printer but impossible to set up on a ntework.  To make matters worse, I paid twice the price in PC world as it is selling for on Amazon.  Grrr.

I keep losing connection to my Wifi Extender

Apple have produced a downloadable app for managing this router.
It also acts like a signal strength meter, and can control various modes on the extender.

Check there is not a scheduler or "Good Night" setting on the extender.
Signal indicator
Poor signal strength:
0 - 39%
So your problem is still poor signal strength, your extender is still not within the wireless range or your router.
See Manual.

Can connect to internet through modem but not through wifi

If thats the case I will assume these things:
- You are seeing the wireless router when you are trying to connect but it still wont let you connect.
- You are NOT seeing the wireless router and want to connect to it.

What you will have to do it go back into the router (hard wired into it) and start over. Make sure you access the wireless setting and ensure the settings are compatible with your wireless laptop. If your laptop is very new then the setting at the bottom will work if your laptop is older then the options like WEP/WAP Personal setting will do. Make sure you write down the settings you used for refrence later.

When you rename the device, wirite it down too!

Ensure you "Apply" all the settings and "Logout."

When you are done, go to "Start," "Control Panel," "Network and Sharing Center," "Set-up a connection or network," "Manually connect to a wireless network," and enter all the information you wrote down!

Let me know if there is anything else you need help with!
