Windows 7: Could not connect all network drives +printer

Could not connect all network drives +printer

I have installed a wireless Epson Workforce 610 printer (it is fast!) but if it is not turned on when I boot I get a notification message "Could not reconnect all network drives".

Is there a setting which will prevent this from displaying?

One other computer which has the same drivers does not show this message, so it is puzzling.

I disabled all the Epson drivers in Startup but that did not help.

I have not found an Epson company forum.

Hi Jambe,

You may try disabling the network adapter's power saving mode from your computer's device manager.

Click "Start", type Device Manager in the Search box, and then press "Enter".
Expand "Network adapters" to expand it.
Right click the network adapter and then click Properties.
On Power Management tab, uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

2xg,

Thanks for the reply. I tried what you suggested but it didn't get rid of the notification.



Anyone else have a suggestion?

It might be worth trying uninstalling the problematic network adapter from your computer's Device Manager, then install the latest driver that you may download from the Manufacturer's site.
