I had the same problem. I read all the help on the internet and tried disabling the firewall on the mac laptop. Infact it was not that. I then read about manually loading 'Rosetta' off of the OS discs supplied with my Mac. The solution is to install Rosetta. Rosetta is the background software which converts PowerPC code to Intel Mac code. While Snow Leopard won't install on a PowerPC Mac, it will allow installation of many PowerPC applications, including Appleworks. Some drivers which are PowerPC only, and plugins for software such as Adobe Photoshop may not work with Snow Leopard.
Put the Snow Leopard disk in the drive and double click the Optional Installs folder, then the Optional Installs.mpkg. Install just Rosetta.
I then saw a blog that said there was a known bug with Mac and Epson - he talked about using Bonjour driver as the default printer - I didn't know how to do it so .....
It still did not work so I got onto Epson WebChat help which was very effective. See the chat below that fixed the problem:

11:45:29 : Steven Wood: Hello Geoff. Have you tried deleting the printer from PRINT and FAX then re-adding the printer making sure that you select either the BONJOUR or STANDARD TCP/IP port?

11:47:03 : geoff: No and although I think I can delete the printer and readd it I am not aware how to select bonjour or standard TCP?IP port - what are these?

11:48:19 : Steven Wood: when you go to add the printer again, bonjour or standard tcp/ip should appear under the KIND heading

11:50:25 : geoff: done that and both came up - added the EPSONOA&F95 (idle, last used) -

11:50:54 : Steven Wood: okay Geoff. Once this has been done can you then restart the MAC and try a print

11:54:34 : geoff: Thats it - done - thanks

Hope this all helps

I have a Mac Book. Recently installed an all-in-one epson sx515w. Whenever I try to print, a popup window says ''remaining ink level. Then, I get the message ''printer currently off line'' Can anyone...

First of all, check to make sure your printer's USB cable is securely connected in your Macbook's USB port.

Next, make sure your Epson SX515W has the latest drivers installed for your current version of Mac OS X
Mac OS X Drivers for Epson SX515W

If you already have the updated printer drivers for your Epson SX515W already installed,
go into System Preferences> Print & Fax and see if the printer is displayed in the Printer window. If it is, click the "-" Minus button and remove your current printer.
* Click the "+" Plus button and re-add that printer.
Once you do, make to set it as the default printer.
- Now attempt to print a test page from any document you have.

See if this does the trick. If if does not, just let me know.

Sx515w epson printer, says its offline. mac os x

Just posted a solution to this - but in case you haven't seen it, the story is that there is a note on the Epson support website for the SX515W saying that there is a known bug with the TCP/IP on Snow Leopard (not sure whether this is the same version as your Mac OS - but the problem sounds identical). Anyway, they suggest as an interim measure that you install a generic Bonjour driver (there are instrcutions on how to do this). Only thing I would add is that you will see that the new driver effectively shown up as an additional printer on your Mac. I found that you have to reassign this new printer as the default printer before it will work. Hope this helps. As I wrote before, I personally think that it iw pretty poor of Epson not to have this problem sorted by now - Snow Leopard has been out a long time now...

Download speed slows when router is on line.

If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.

If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.

thank you
