1.1 First-Time Setup for Epson Printer

If your Epson printers shipped with the DHCP disabled by default, or if a factory reset took place, you may find that the printer can only obtain the IP address of 192.168.192.168. This will cause some problems when trying to set up your printers, so this guide will walk you through the steps to re-enable DHCP and have them ready to connect to your Dinlr system.

Step 1. Reset the Epson Printer (Optional)

To confirm that the DHCP is disabled, press and hold the small pinhole button at the back of the printer for 3 seconds - you can do this real quick with a pen. (Note: DO NOT power off the printer while it's resetting)

You can skip this step if you are sure that the DHCP has been disabled, and the IP Address is 192.168.192.168.

Access your iPad/iPhone Wi-Fi settings, and tapping the "i" next to your currently connected network.

Next, under "IPv4 Address" tap on "Configure IP".

Step 3. Enabling DHCP on Epson Printer Settings

Now, open your Safari browser app and enter http://192.168.192.168 into the address bar.

You may get some warnings that the connection is not secure. Ignore the browser warnings and connect to the site anyway. This may look different depending on the browser app of your choice. This example shows the warning in Safari.
