Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I am trying to connect my Epson WF2540 wireless to my Acer Aspire 6930G Windows 7 OS. I have established a wireless connection from the printer to the router but my laptop will not find the printer during install. Marco
JA: Routing question, huh? Fortunately, the tech wizards we work with know networking, and I'd like to connect you with the best one for this. Is there anything else important you think the Network Technician should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Network Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

If you've performed the steps above and the laptop still isn't seeing the printer you'll need to verifythe printer's connection to the router. To do that print a network status sheet (see attachment)The printout will tell you the printer's IP address. It should beginwith 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x
