How to setup network settings in Epson® WorkForce 600 Printers
Printers have more or less moved from being a luxury to a very essential equipment for both home and office requirements. To the average technology enthusiast, setting up a printer in the network may seem like a task. However, Epson WorkForce 600 network setup doesn’t require too much pondering upon. In fact having to set up any printer in the network either through a wired or wireless connection is effortless. All it requires is some information about the network the printer needs to be connected to and availability of all the required software. Before you begin, you must ensure that ink cartridges have been installed and paper has been loaded in the tray. With all this in place, having a printer available across the network can be an effortless process. With the printer installed on a Windows XP computer, a working network connection should allow hassle-free hook up to any other computer too.
Listed below are ways in which Epson WorkForce 600 network setup can be configured and also what must be remembered when setting up a printer. The methods are nearly the same for any printer model.
- Connecting to Wireless/Wired Networks
- Installing software
- Problems faced when setting up a printer
Connecting to Wireless/Wired Networks
While adding a printer to a wireless network, users must know beforehand the SSID or name of their wireless printer. In the event that security has been enabled, information about the mode of security and the WEP key is also required. To set up a Wireless connection in the home menu option, the Network Settings attribute must be chosen. Here, users must pick the Wireless LAN options ‘Enable’ feature. There is also a choice of Manual Wireless LAN Setup with the Infrastructure mode. Searching a wireless network begins by using the Search SSID feature and when found, users can choose their network name. Setting up printer in the network must be rounded off by enabling the security settings and finally confirming the wireless settings. You can also configure a wired connection using the supplied Ethernet cable and having the installation software walk you through the settings.
To install the software, users simply require the printer software CD that should have been typically availed of when the printer was purchased. After inserting the CD in the drive on the Microsoft Windows XP OS just hit install. For Microsoft Windows Vista Os, go in the AutoPlay window, then Run Epsetup.exe must be clicked while in the Mac OS X, simply double-clicking the Epson icon can do the needful.
The most frequent problem faced while setting up a printer in the network is a failure of software installation. In this case, users must check the printer’s network settings and have it reset if needed. Following this, a first-time installation of the printer and software can be performed. In case you have no clue as to how to set up a printer for the first time, it is always recommended for a tech support so that you do not end up ruining other settings of your computer while installation.
