Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is Dustin.
I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having, I will do my best to help you resolve it.

Ask Your Own Printers Question

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

It may be a bit simpler and easier if you and I connect through a secure remote assistance. With that, I will be able to connect to your computer from here and work on repairing the issue personally. This can save a lot of time and if your not very fluent with computer repairs this is the best option.

Our secure remote assistance is guaranteed meaning if I cant solve the issue then you will be entitled to a full refund of all fees. Would you like to try a remote assistance session or would you prefer to continue via written support alone?

Thank you for your response,

Dustin S

Mr Dustin, may i get an answer today? I'm busy... If i cant i want my money back

I can help you. What you need to do is connect your printer to the same wireless network your phone is connected to.

You will then need to follow the steps on this page to use the printers control panel to connect it to the wifi network

https://files.support.epson.com/docid/cpd5/cpd50588.pdf#%5B%7B%22num%22%3A78%2C%22gen%22%3A0%7D%2C%7B%22name%22%3A%22XYZ%22%7D%2C0%2C243.9%2C0%5D

Then, your phone will be able to print to the printer.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a 5 star rating clicked and submitted when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.

if i connect my printer to my home's network, it's going to work outside home? I did that with another printer and that didn't work

everytime you go to a new place, you will have to reconnect the printer to the new network the phone is on.

I am assuming you are physically bringing the printer with you, is that correct?

Ask Your Own Printers Question

Ok, then just save the link I sent you. and when you connect to a new network or go to a new place, follow those steps again.

That will make sure you can always connect to the printer. If you have further questions let me know

Look, Ill be on the road when I need the printer... So i don't think i can connect to a network. I bought the printer with that purpose.

Your phone should be able to make a wireless network. Th printer can connect to that.

Whats the name brand and model of your phone?
