Already Tried:
Using the Epson Connect printer setup, pressing the wifi button, switching everything off and back on and trying again, several times. I have turned off the firewall on the iMac and tried it all again.

The epson step says it cannot find the printer! At the moment it is connected to the iMac by USB cable!

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thank you
Can you disconnect the printer and connect it to a different USB port on the iMac.
Then rerun the installation and tell me if it is then connected please.
