    Trouble setting up network printer
    I have an Epson printer installed on my iMac, and my wife was able to add the printer to her HP PC without any difficulties. However, we recently purchased another iMac for my kids, and I cannot get the printer installed to use wirelessly. The iMac has the printer listed as an option in the drop down box (and is selected as the default printer) but when I attempt to print a document, it appears to be searching for it for a few minutes, and then an error message comes up stating that it could not locate the printer and something about Port 631. I checked the wireless connection, and it is working fine.

    Anyone know what could be happening (or not happening, as the case may be?).

    Is the Epson printer physically attached to one of your computers, or is it wireless only?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    It is not connected to any computer, wireless only.

    I would get the latest version of the driver from the Epson website and give that a shot.

    Specs:
    27 iMac i5, MBP 13 & iMac 20, 2TB dual TC, AppleTV, iPh4S
    And similarly i would physically connect printer to each computer to confirm that it can print to the printer and then reselect as default in each computer once it is back wirelessly.

    Hi,
    The wireless network at my high school has several network printers set up throughout the building. I was wondering whether it is possible to use my laptop with these printers.
    Thank you...
