Unfortunately, none of that worked. Channel width gets changed to "auto".

In one of your earlier posts you stated

Quote:
The router has also been set to clone my computer's MAC address.

What's that about (why) ?

Are you still cloning the MAC ?

is it the samw w-51 error ?

Have you tried giving the printer a static IP address ?

That was something that Linksys had me do for some reason. Anyway I have a solution now with the new router. I had tried to connect the printer to the Netgear router by using the LED control panel on the printer. Which didn't work. The only thing that worked was to install the proprietary Epson software on a Mac Mini, and connect the printer via USB cable to the Mac Mini. Then the software configured the connection between the printer and the router.

Oddly I was about to suggest something similar after reading this:

Glad you solved it, and thanks for posting the solution :)
