My Epson SX235W has lost it's network connection for no apparent reason. The settings for my wireless network haven't changed - other wireless devices can still connect - and (as far as I can work out) the settings on the printer haven't changed either. I haven't enabled MAC filtering, the wireless password hasn't changed, the SSID of the network hasn't changed.
I've tried both reinstalling the printer software from the installation CD and reconnecting the printer via the "Wi-Fi" button on the front panel. In both cases the printer goes away for 5 minutes attempting to communicate and comes back with either:
or a flashing orange light on the front panel. There is no other information as to what is wrong.
The router seems to think that the printer is connected. It has an entry for the printer called "EPSON2C11F5" and has assigned it an IP address. However if I try to
ping that address I get "Destination host unreachable.". Unfortunately I don't know whether that's because the printer doesn't respond to pings or really is unreachable.
What other options do I have?
The printer part is working fine when I connect via USB - it's just the wireless networking that's failed.
