So... I go into Best Buy
Yesterday... And their GEEK SQUAD Says "oh well your printer isn't compatible with that" after a lot of time searching the store we only find 1 printer that is compatible in their store and they only have a jacked up floor model left. I only found out it was jacked up when we got it home and my husband noticed they had glued a piece of cardboard to the scanner glass.
None the less I go on. After I reformatted once again due to another issue. Start out and I have the same problems with this Epson as I had with my original. On a hunch I disable my "Access List" even though I added the MAC to the list. But I left my WEP Encryption alone. And Viola it works. I am Angry at this though.
And I decide to plug the original HP DESKJET 3940 Into the second printer port... And whaddya know?! The stupid thing works!
Then comes the fun part... Time to take out the Epson drivers and uninstall it all just so I can have my network setup the way I wanted it in the first place. Working Just fine with the printer I had all along!
And now after working all night I get to take back the crappy Floor Model today... I bet their gonna love that...
I hope all this helps someone else.
