    I have installed my wireless EPSON XP 600 printer on my wireless Laptop OS XP using latest updated EPSON download software and according to message,successfully, but when I test print or other document I get error message and no printing....however the printer prints ok when requested from other wireless devices such as IPad and iMac computer!....where am I going wrong.

    The printer prints ok when wired to Laptop via usb cable.

    Hi, Liz.

    'Ad-hoc' connections are exactly what you would imagine them to be; a wireless connection set up 'on-the'fly, as it were, usually from one device straight to another.....as opposed to being routed via your normal router infrastructure, which you set up before you start to use it.

    This page from HowToGeek explains it:-

    Hope that helps.


    Mike. ;)
