Epson PX720WD Wireless Network Printing


Epson PX720WD Wireless Network Printing
For setting up wireless printing for Epson PX720WD

System -> Adminstration -> Printing
and click Add to select New Printer

Under Printer Type select Network Printer
This will open a drop-down list.
Select AppSocket/HP JetDirect

This will show two text boxes called Host: and Port:
for Host: you need to put the IP address of the printer.
Leave the Port: as the default 9100

You can determine the IP of the printer by pressing the Setup key on the printer, then select Network -> Network Settings -> Display Wireless Summary
If the printer is currently connected to the network, it's IP address will be listed.


Enter the IP address and select Forward

Now you need to choose your printer driver.

Under Manufacturer choose Epson
Now for Model you will choose Stylus Photo PX720WD

It will suggest that you use the
Epson Stylus Photo PX72OWD Series-epson-inkjet-printer 1.0.0-1lsb3.2 (Seiko Epson Corporation LSB 3.2) [en] (recommended) driver. This is correct.
Click Forward and Apply

Unless your have the drivers installed already ignore the driver setup just below:

Describe Printer, enter the following details:
Printer Name: Epson-Stylus-Photo-PX720WD-1
Description: Epson-Stylus-Photo-PX720WD-1
Location: wherever
Click Apply

Now you can go back to the printers box and right-click your new printer and select Make Default.

Happy printing!

Dear shayno90,
I try exactly your procedure, but when it comes to choosing the printer model, in the dropdown list, I have Stylus Photo PX710W, but I cannot find PX720WD, even though I have installed the artisan 725 825 package from avasys.
Any idea on how I can proceed ?

Thx in advance

Hi Patrice, use that printer driver Stylus Photo PX710W as this works just fine with Stylus PX720WD. I did this setup twice on different laptops.
1. On the first installation, the Stylus Photo PX720WD driver appeared for me so I was able to use this one.
2. On the second installation, the Stylus Photo PX7210W driver only appeared so I select this and I was able to connect with my printer just fine so you can proceed with using that driver.
