Hi flogit, For the initiual installation you will need to hook up the printer via usb cable then when all software is installed and the wifi configured you can then disconnect the usb cable and merrily print away

Not always. Most printers I've used do not require a USB cable for initial setup. They do require you to know the details of your network, however, especially any security codes you may use.

As a side note, I always prefer using a static IP for my network printers, regardless of home or business ones. The easiest way is to log into your router and find out the DHCP range, such as x.x.x.100 and up. In that example, I'd pick a number outside, such as x.x.x.10 for my printer. Set it on the printer, along with any additional info, and then run the driver software from a computer connected to the same router.

Flogit, the manual that will be supplied with the printer is very useful and will guide you step by step through the installation routine

I have the Epson Stylus SX610FW very highly pleased with it ,When the original IInk cartridges ran out I invested in a continuous ink system for it so no more cartridges to replace Continuous ink system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
