This set of instructions is only to be used with an Epson printer prints "DHCP: disable." The point of the article is to get DHCP to be 'Enable', which then gives the printer a valid IP Address (rather than the factory default 192.168.192.168).

1. Plug the Epson printer directly into the Windows computer.  Move the mouse cursor to the bottom or top right corner of the screen and then selecting the cog icon for Settings.
