Orange and green lights indicate the printer is talking to the network -- good news.

Where/how do you expect it to "show up on the network"? Have you installed the full driver on one of the PCs on the network? If you don't have the manufacturer's installation disk, suggest you download the full installation file from the Epson website and install it on a PC on the network.

    Thanks Terry. Yes the driver has been installed on my laptop. I want to use it for point of sale with an Ipad app. The TM utility has been downloaded to the Ipad but the printer isn't showing on the list of available printers. The green light comes on, then the orange light flashes twice, then the green light goes out again. It just keeps repeating the same.
    I'm thinking I might try uninstalling & reinstalling the printer driver?

    Is there an app on the laptop from which you can print to it? If you can see the printer on the Devices and Printers page of your laptop, open the Printer Properties and try sending a Test Page to the printer.
    You can discover its IP address -- go to printer Properties and look for the PORT. An IP will have been assigned by your network. Perhaps there's a way to enter the printer's IP in the utility on the iPad.

    I have the IP address. I'll try and find some way to enter it. Thanks

    Suggests the problem is on the iPad end -- perhaps some missing part of the iPad app or a driver that didn't get installed? Printer is talking to the network OK.

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit site for more info.
