Help ! ... dlink router wont recognise epson printer

I have done everything i can think of and have a reasonable technological aptitude. my epson stylus photo 830U printer prints fine but only if its attached to the mac's usb port - the second laptop will print wirelessly from here too.

when i attach the printer to the USB port of the DLINK router (and the green lights are on) i cant get the router to find the printer - no matter what i do ... the manual is no help at all and i have been through etherenet/bluetooth/rendeavous and every option available .... i phoned DLINK but no one is prepared to step me through the possibilities - they fob me off to mac !

aaargh .... hope you can help >>> Gina

SOURCE: My Hp C6180 won't seem to recognise the top photo tray

I contacted HP free of charge via their instant support which works like MSN and they talked me through it step by step "it was a little irritating when they kept going off line!! any you have just typed the equivalent of war and peace"!!  I still need to contact them again at a different department, as they think it's a Mac software problem.

SOURCE: I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but

Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

SOURCE: Urgent: red light error on Epson Stylus CX3650

It appears that this is an overseas model (at least for those here in the US that is) as far as I can tell. This will use the same drivers as the CX3600 model though. Depending on how long you have had this and how often you use it, you may have a waste ink reset situation. While I have not had any personal experience with this model, there are several references on the internet on how to do a reset. There is even an "SSC Service Utility" you can search for that lists this printer as being supported. It cannot reset the ink counters but it may reset the waste.
Good luck, I hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R800 (Manual Feed) missing option

I found this answer on support discussions.  Worked for me.  There is more information available on the discussion, but this was enough to fix my problem. Try Page Setup. Select to format for your printer. The choices for different all media should now be available under the Paper Size. This is a change from previous practice of creating a separate printer for each type of media.

SOURCE: epson stylus pohoto 830u paper feed

I'm afraid this series of printer (810 -830) doesn't handle heavy photo paper well - which is a bit strange for a so-called photo printer. If you hold each sheet and help it to feed it will work. But ...... for goodness sake. Your best bet is to sell it on e-bay and buy something that will handle heavy paper.

Epson S20 does not recognise cartridges

It should be returned to the seller for exchange under warranty.

I presume you have removed the tags on the cartridge and ensured they have chips on the cartridge case? If all that has been done then i would be making a warranty claim

My Epson stylus R1900 printer wont recognise an orange cartridge that I bought from Epson, is there a way to fix this ? Lou

Call Epson for a replacement. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

DI-524 status led not blinking

Here are the instructions

  1. Make sure that you have a copy of the latest firmware and it has an *.exe file with it. Because the router's configuration page won't be available, you'll be needing the exe to some sort of force the firmware upgrade procedure.
  2. Unplug everything attached to your router except the power cable and LAN cable connected to your pc.
  3. Configure your TCP/IP with this info: IP:, Default mask:, Default Gateway: and DNS Server: (Use only 1 DNS server). Save this new configuration and reboot your pc.
  4. Unplug the power cable to your router as the pc reboots. When everything is up and running, plug the power cable. The status led will be flashing like crazy. It's normal.
  5. Use the exe file to upgrade your firmware. Make sure that the utility file (exe file) is able to recognize your router or else you won't be able to do a firmware upgrade. Now this may take a while, keep pressing the Refresh button to recognize your router. Once recognized you would see there crash. Once you have this, you can now press the upgrade button.
  6. Wait for a while until the unit finishes the upgrade and once done, I think you have recovered the life of your router from the pits of hell. Hahahaha.
  7. You can now unplug the power of the router and restart your pc, see if everything is doing fine.
Hope this helps.

Epson stylus rx 425, just cahnged catridges and printer wont recognise this, catridge red light permanently on. help! printer wont recognise cartridge

Try to left up your new cartridge, and reinstall it. chances are your installation of the cartridge is just loosened. If your printer still won't recognise your print cartridge, there might be a problem with your printer motherboard in recognising your cartridge.

Wireless Adapter

actually, dlink and linksys both make excellent print routers. but that's not what you're asking is it? You want a wireless adapter to interface with your epson, which is, I take it not wireless. So, it's simple.

get a wireless print router, from one of those two companies, and hook up your printer to that router, voila

Printer will not print

More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
