I am on a wireless network in my home. I've had numerous printers, faxes and external hardware connected. In other words, the network works fine. However, my husband has connected a new Epson CX9400. It prints from his desktop, it prints from my wireless laptop, but my desktop cannot get it to print documents. The previous 2 computers use Vista, my desktop uses XP. I have removed and reloaded the driver (via CD) several times. I have my laptop and desktop sitting side-by-side comparing ports, sharing, etc. When I set the port on my desktop to USB002 virtual printer port (set the same as the laptop and my husband's desktop), I get a message upon sending a test print that says "Attempting to connect to a different device from that specified in the driver. Check the driver settings and the device." I have let the driver install select the port to be LPT1. I don't get this message, but it also does not print the test. What else can I try? I'm going in circles here. Thanks.
Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.

Have you installed the necessary software already? The driver is needed for the connection between the computer and the printer. You might want to also check the physical connections like the USB cable or other cables which connects the device and the computer.
Directly from the wall, phone line should be connected to to Line port at the back of the printer and answering machine should be connected to EXT. port from the back of the printer. Make sure on the fax setting on the printer that you have all the info already ( ur number and stuffs), communication setting on the printer, drd set to all, ecm to off, v.34 to off, rings to answer 6 and dial tone detection to off. and answering machine distinctive ring pattern should be set to 4rings.
And since you are using DSL make sure that line from wall should have a filter then connect it to LINE port at the back of printer...
Not sure of your exact situation but .........
Your answering machine MUST be connected directly to the output of your CX9400 and you can't use an answering machine with multiple "mailboxes". Set your answering machine to 4 and your CX9400 to 5/6 rings. Epson "Technical Support" has no clue of this problem .... yet.
The machine routes the call to your answering machine, it it's an incoming FAX and the answering machine starts the CX9400 will recognize the incoming transmit signal, turn on the FAX function, and disconnect your answering machine.
You may need to adjust the CX9400 rings setting based upon the duration of your answering machines announce message (longer message = greater number)
