Hi All,


I have a Epson Stylus NX125 all-in-on printer/scanner/copier connected via USB to my router, an ASUS RT-N13U SuperSpeed N Wireless.  I have tried to connect to the printer via IP > LPD using the router's IP address, various Queues.  I updated my drivers for the printer, ran a software update check, etc.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to connect to the printer at all.  I have no problems connecting to the internet via wifi.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Is your printer/scanner/copier networkable? How does Epson say to network it in the manual? The router's print sharing may be limited to PC's and not the Mac.

    My name is Syd and I work for Epson America, Inc.


    The Stylus NX125 does not support any type of network printing.  The only type of connection available is USB.  In order to print to the printer you will need to be hard wired with a USB cable.  Unfortunately, your current set up is not something that is supported for this product


    Hope this helped,

    So the Epson Tech guy has spoken. if you want to network your printer then get a Airport Express and connect the printer to it with a USB cable. Set up the AE for printing only using the Airport Utility.
