This could be due to a number of reasons. To troubleshoot, try connecting another device in your home to your wireless network to make sure the network is working. If not, you may need to restart your router/modem. Make sure your printer is within the range of your wireless router, and that it is not placed near a microwave, cordless phone or large metal objects.

You may need to check your router's MAC settings - these could restrict new devices from being able to connect to your printer. If settings are in place, check the MAC address of your printer and register it with your network (check guide linked below on how to find the address). Additionally, you may have to input the name of your network (SSID) manually if it doesn't appear, or check to make sure the WEP/WPA keys are entered correctly.

For more troubleshooting info for network connectivity, visit the printer's user manual.

The printer worked fine over the weekend, Monday I needed to print something and the printer couldn’t be found. On checking the printer it was off line, went to WiFi set up, my SSID wasn’t listed so manually entered it. Failed! Several attempts and the printer is not finding my network. It finds others and, as I said, won’t manually connect to mine either. Epson XP-332

Most of the time, people go through wifi problem. due to the wifi encryption problem. when users changes there password or encryption type on their wifi. but don’t delete the existing profile on your their network. they face such kind of problem. so you should delete the existing wifi profile from your wifi and try to connect your printer to the wifi. I am sure this will work fine this time.

Yes, thank you this was exactly my issue.

I found with our EPSON ET-2760 it will not find our SSID utilizing google wifi because of the special character: “‘“ (apostrophe). I made a guest network without a special character and it immediately sees it. It only sees some special characters. I have 63 devices on my wifi so I’m not going to change my SSID. I guess the answer is to flip networks when I need to print.

Thank you. This was the issue I have been struggling with tonight and your answer was the one that identified my issue. Have to say that I'm disappointed with Epson's software not being able to handle this It is such a basic function at this point.


I agree! Such a super easy thing for them to fix and it boggles my mind that they have special characters omitted.

most printers don’t support ADHOC WiFi

most phones can’t create AP WiFi networks, they only work with ADHOC, it’s a limitation of the wifi chip in the phone.

Try reconnecting to the network, which must be 2.4 G. If it wouldn't connect turn it off, unplug it and try again. That worked for me. As an aside, I’ll never buy another Epson printer. It’s been a pain, but does seem to work better with the windows machines on my network.

Presumably wifi sourced. Try putting a reflector of kitchen foil behind your modem facing the printer.

My EpsonL4260 was connected to our wifi network just fine and then it suddenly stopped connecting and wouldn't even see our wifi signal. I turned out that the WPS button on our D-Link wireless router had gotten bumped and all I had to do was press it again (just for a moment, if you hold the button in for several seconds, it will reset the router which you do not want!) and voila! our SSID appeared again and we were connected!
