Have you confirmed that the PC is connected to the wireless network?

✔ Best Answer
Can you clarify your setup please...

Is the the third hub wifi actually enabled?

Is the printer's wifi enabled; and does it have a cat-5/ethernet option - and are you using that cat-5 option?

XP-pc is connected to the third hub that is wifi enabled?

Does XP-pc connect to third hub by wifi; or is connected via ethernet/cat-5 cable only?

Win-7-pc is on the same hub (or not); and how is it connecting to whichever hub it is on - wifi or ethernet/cat-5 cable?

Can you confirm the ip address and subnet details for the printer's wifi; and for both your pcs? Printer setup usually allows a printout of the settings for wifi and cat-5 (if exists on the printer). Also if the printer allows both wifi and cat-5 connections then likely wifi will not work well - if at all - if cat-5 is set to be used. I have a Canon that allows both, and on occasion it will work with both; but more often than not it won't allow wifi operation if cat-5 is active.

On your XP-pc and also the win-7-pc run the command < ipconfig /all > (without the < > ) from a command prompt (start\run and type: cmd - and press enter/return to bring up the dos box) - and copy the details here.

And have you installed/added the printer correctly within XP?

If you can determine the ip address for the printer (wifi) can you ping it from both computers?

Hub3 wifi enabled, the win7 pc access ok. the printer only has wifi connection. both PCs can access each others shared data, thus I must be connected to third hub.
The main broadband router, has a wifi enabled on it. this is connected to XP pc via a second router, all connected with Cat5 cable, RJ45 plugs etc.
the win7 PC connect to a hub with a wifi, via RJ45/cat5. this hub connects to the main broadband router via RJ45/cat5.
XP PC goes from local hub to main broadband hub onto win7s hub, with said wifi. and then to printer.
printer has the same ip address as command to sent to it has.I will try to access the print setup setting on XP pc.

These links may be of help...?

The last one from an earlier post here at CD goes though the whole process of creating a port and using the ip address of the printer to connect...

You "may" also need to provide the drivers for the Epson - installing them on the XP-pc
