How to Turn on the Wireless in an Epson NX515 Printer

By Matt Koble

The Epson Stylus NX515 is an all-in-one printer featuring Wi-Fi Internet connectivity. This feature allows the printer to wirelessly communicate with your computer through your wireless network. While you can still connect the two with a cable, this option allows you to place the printer or computer farther away from each other than you would otherwise be able to. Before beginning, you'll need to get the SSID, or Network Name, and the WEP or WPA security key from the network administrator or person who set up your wireless Internet connection.

Step 1

Turn on your Epson Stylus NX515. Press the NX515 control panel's "Setup" button. Use the left or right arrows to navigate to "Network Settings" and hit "OK."

Step 2

Press the up and down arrows to highlight "Wireless LAN Setup" and press "OK." Navigate to "Setup Wizard" and hit "OK."

Step 3

Navigate to your network's SSID name using the up and down arrows, then press "OK" to select the correct network.

Step 4

Type in the security passcode and press "OK." The "-" button deletes a character and the "Menu" button switches between uppercase, lowercase, numbers and special characters. When you finish, press "OK."

Step 5

Verify the settings presented on the next screen. If the settings are incorrect, press "Back" until you get to the screen to change the incorrect setting. If they're correct, press "OK" and hit the "Copy" button to exit setup. Your printer may take up to 90 seconds to connect. When it does, the green "Wi-Fi" light lights up.
