Epson trouble

Well the good news is that I got BT Infinity working – there was a bit of a mix up with BT about the installation of a second line – they realised they had to dig up the drive which they seriously didn’t want to do so disconnected my old line and used it for the new number. I was ok with that because I was going to disconnect the old line anyway but now it turns out I might not be able to move the old number to the new line and I will be seriously annoyed if I lose my home number of 15 years.

With the line up, configuring everything was quick and easy apart from – you guessed it – the Epson printer. When I first installed the printer, I had a serious moan at them about how their DNS didn’t work and they blamed the ISP after which I never got a response. Now I have spent two hours trying to reconfigure it from the old network to the new one and I can’t do it – not the way I want anyway with a static I/P address. I had to factory reset it to be able to connect the the Wifi at all. USB connection does not work.

As a printer the ET-2550 is ok but the interface and software is dis-functional. Don’t buy one unless you really, really need the ecotank feature. The other advertised features don’t work either and the entire configuration experience is not worth the hassle.
