Hey there, Im having trouble setting up the wifi printer on my mac. It's an epson stylus nx430 and both have excellent connection to the router, but it fails its installation everytime in the printer setup stage because it fails to connect to the printer.

It suggests checking the router is on (obviously done that), checking that the computer can communicate with the router which it is, and/or moving it closer to the router, which they are next to it.

anyone got any idea why they just wont read each other?

any help is very much appreciated thanks

What's the make and model of your Mac and which version of OSX do you have?

Did you get a confirmation sheet printed when you setup the printer? Does it have a valid IP address starting 192.168 ?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
