How is your printer connected? direct plug-in to your network or is it attached to a computer? If the printer(s) are both on one pc, share the printers on THAT pc and give them each a name. Go to the PC you want to share them to. go to ...printers & faxes go to>>>add a printer>>>choose NEXT, choose network printer, >>>>choose connect to THIS printer (DO NOT fill in the blank) leave it and hit next. find your workgroup and what you named the OTHER computer. open the plus-sign and choose the printer you want...move forward. Remember to SHARE on one computer ADD to the other (not share on both)

First off, it is best to make sure that the printer is seen on the network. To do this you will need to printer out a wireless network test report. Please follow the instructions below for printer a Wireless Network Test.
1) Press the right arrow button
2) Press the setup icon (wrench with the gear)
3) Scroll through the options and select Wireless Menu
4) Scroll through the options and select Print Wireless Test Report.
When the test report prints, does anything on the test show as failing? The IP address that is listed on the page. Take this IP address, open your internet browser that you use. Type the IP address into the address bar of the browser, and select go/enter. Does your printers page appear?
As well what version of Windows are you currently running?
I have problems with USB docket printers with certain packages how I get around it is I share the usb printer as a network share then I issue this command on the command line
NET USE \\COMPUTER_NAME\SHARE_NAME COMX:
where X is an unused comport. I then install the printer as a standard serial printer in the software package. I have had particular trouble with that model of printer and its solved for me in the past. Another note is if the computer is not on a network you can install a 1394 dummy connection that way the network is still accessible. Comment if you need help on that.
Dont forget to rate me!
Make sure the other 2 computers are on same WiFi network as first PC, see if you can ping printers network address. If yes, see if Epson has updated drivers if other 2 PC’s are a newer version of Windows. Try installing printer as network printer with IP address, select have disk, and browse to new driver.
it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems.
Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked.
Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address.
Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
