My Stylus SX235W is connected to an HP Laptop via Wifi. It is recognised by the PC (Devices& Printers) and will print from Word, Excel, Acrobat etc. However when I install the Scan software from the Epson site it does not rcognise the printer.

So I tried to correct this by downloading and running the Printer Setup software, again from the Epson site. At the "connection" point in the setup procedure Wi-fi Network Connection was selected; upon clicking next the message "Network interface not available"

But clearly the printer (originally added via the Windows add printer function) is communicating with the PC.

How do I overcome the problem of the Scan programme not recognising the printer?

What is your OS? Windows 10, Windows 7, 32 bit/64 bit etc.
Was Scan software not available on install CD?
Obviously you have a router. Do you know the router address (SSID)?
Do you know router passphrase (password)?

Thanks for the reply. To answer your queries:
1, Windows 10 64 bit
2. I do not recall receiving an install CD - rather a guide with Epson web address to down load
3. Yes it uses an router - as it is in France it is an Orange LiveBox and yes I do have the password
However we are away from the house at present (for a couple of days) so do not have a note of it with me.

I like the dog!

Cheers.

Un-install your scan application Win 10 as follows;

Open the Start menu.
Click “Settings”.
Click “System” on the Settings menu.
Select “Apps & Features” from the left pane. ...
Select the Epson Scan app you attempted to install previously (HIGHLIGHT IT).
Click the Uninstall button that appears.

Should this fail to solve issue, then we will uninstall all Epson software, including

Uninstall Epson Printer Driver:
Navigate: Control Panel -> Devices & Printers -> Right Click SX235W Icon ->
Select “Remove Device”
Do this for any other remaining SX235 Icons

Uninstall all Epson Software as previously instructed
