Hi,

Please try these steps.
Disconnect the lan cable and power cable from the printer, then power off the router. Then power on the router and reconnect the cables to the printer. Then Power on the printer.

    • Setting network while accessing the memory card may interrupt access.
  • Enter the Setup mode.

  • Confirm the printer name.

    The printer name is ***** ***** access or identify the printer on the network.

    The default setting is 'EPSONXXXXXX' (X: Last 6 digits of the MAC address). To change the printer name, retype the text.

    Normally, the broadband router or access point will automatically allocate a IP address to the printer. To use this option, select Auto.

    To assign a unique or static IP address to the printer, select Manual, and enter the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. These details can be gained from the network status sheet and from the Windows IP Configuration command.
