How to Connect Epson Artisan 1430 to WiFi?
Make sure to follow the steps discussed below to set up WiFi on Epson Artisan 1430 without any difficulty.
Unbox and Connect Power Cord
Unpack your printer by getting rid of all the materials that are inserted within the printer for protection. Now open the cover of your printer and eliminate the tapes inside it as well.
You will find a power cord within the packaging, connect one end of it to the printer and the other to an electrical outlet. After that, turn on the printer by pressing the power button.
Insert Ink Cartridges
Install the ink cartridges one by one by removing the yellow tape and inserting it inside the cartridges slot individually until it clicks. You will see a “Waterdrop” like a symbol, press it to start the ink priming. Make sure not to turn off the printer during the priming process, as it may cause ink wastage.
Load Printing Paper
Now it’s time to load paper within the printer. For that, just pull up the paper support extensions and output tray extensions.
Move the edge guide towards the left sideloads of the printer paper and keep the printable side of the paper upwards.
The paper should be kept against the right edge of the sheet feeder and just at the back of the tab. Press the left edge guide against the paper’s left edge. Keep in mind that the paper should not be inserted tightly.
This step involves software installation. Keep in mind that the printer should not be connected to the computer during this process. Now follow the instructions that are provided below.
Insert the CD of Epson Artisan 1430 first and then click on Run Setup.exe once you see the AutoPlay window.
After that, if you see a User Account Control Screen, make sure to click on Yes or Continue. This was for Windows, however, if you own a Mac running OS X, just double click on the Epson icon.
Now, follow the onscreen instructions to finish the software installation process.
Now the installer will ask you to connect the printer with your computer using a USB cable and after a succesful connection, it will ask you to remove the cable.
The USB cable is not included in the printer package and needs to be administered by the user himself.
Now provide the network name and network password as provided by the connection provider. However, SSID and network password is not required for Wi-Fi Protected Setup.
Tricks and Tips to Try in Case of Unsuccessful Network Setup
If for some reason the network setup fails, then you can try the simple workarounds outlined below for a quick fix.
- If you are using WPS to connect your printer and it doesn’t connect, then press the WiFi button on the router and then within 3 seconds press and hold the WiFi button on the printer. Keep it pressed for 3 seconds.
- Turn off the router and turn it on again. This process is called reset. After this, try to connect the printer with it again.
- The network’s DHCP option should be enabled while using TCP/IP. Also, if you observe a Firewall alert message, click on Unblock or Allow to continue the setup.
- The password and network name (SSID), should be correctly inserted. The cases of the letters should be correct.
- Also, check your router connection by connecting it to some other device or computer. See whether it is working correctly on it.
