Hi James,
Sorry for delay in responding, yes I have gone into advance settings and made sure WPS was enabled.

Good Morning @GailN80

 

Are you able to try connecting something else to your router vis WPS?

 

Just so we can try and rule out what is causing the issue.

 

Thanks - Karen. Smiley Happy

Laptops don't connect to WiFi by WPS.

Hi @GailN80

 

I don't believe there's a limit - that shouldn't be causing the issue.

 

It might be worth trying to set it up using a wired USB connection.

 

There's some FAQ's on the Epson website.

 

Let me know how it goes!

 

Thanks - Karen. Smiley Happy
