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.

Your printer might need a firmware update. Check the printer documentation for how to do this.
Your printer must be on the same WiFi network
Your router must support Bonjour (Zero-configuration networking).
Turn Off iPad, WiFi router (remove from power), and Printer (remove from power).
Turn on WiFi router
Wait 30 seconds
Turn on printer
Wait 30 seconds
Turn on iPad
Try to print.

Problem with Canon I-SENSYS MF 4150

After several days of researching the same problem for the MF4150, the conclusion is that you have to use an Axis or Silex brand print server developed specifically for Canon. Both have been reported to provide Print/Scan/Fax multi-functionality, but it seems Silex is the one Canon really supports (it's only sold on their website) and is most likely to be the least problematic.
