Worry is the problem when you lower the security setting.

Here at home we use the WPA2 setting, and I have the transmitting power percentage setting, set as low as possible to allow the wife excellent coverage while she is inside the house.

As a check I had her go outside to see if her galaxy phone could pick up the wi-fi signal, and as long as she is within five feet of the house's outside walls she has coverage, but at any distance greater than that, you wouldn't know we even had wi-fi. The closest road/street is 40feet away, and houses 30feet (9 to 10 meters). On the other hand I can see neighbors wi-fi signals from a hundred yards away (90meters).

With Gorlist's work situation, if, he was using wi-fi it would be best if he remained on WPA2, but that's a moot point now, I only offered because I wasn't sure.

Just installing a regular printer on a stand-alone machine can be a tricky situation, and Epson's are among the trickiest.

I have some questions for clarification:
  • Your thread title says BX310, but your post title says SX410, Is it one or the other or both?
  • And, when you say hub, do you mean the new BT Homehub or is there an in between hub before your Epson connects to the BT Homehub?
If you are using BT Broadband you might find help here:

I found the link here: Re: BT HomeHub 3.0 and Wired Printer - BTCare Community Forums, but you must use BT or you'll be locked out.

Hi, yes sorry it was a mistake on the topic thread. It is a SX410.

BT Home Hub v3 ADSL router. I don't believe its anything to do with the hardware as per say, just an odd Windows anomaly. Going to retry with the drivers today, and to do some more fiddling, trawling the web and very little on the ms scan service, and suggestions with networked combination printers :|

Hum never ever used an Epson I cannot comment on their worth most of my stuff at home has been Canon and at work just about all HP apart from the very large fax / scanners/ copiers etc which have been Canon I guess because of cost.

My next printer is going to be HP so it will be interesting to see what happens when I use it from the machine.

Will be interesting to find out how you got on.
