Some Epson projectors have inbuilt wireless connectivity. For these models, you do not need to install a wireless LAN Module.

For Epson projector models that do not have inbuilt Wi-Fi, you will need to install a Wireless Lan Module. This module is an optional part that you can purchase separately from any Epson store or dealer.

A Wireless LAN Module is a high-speed network adapter that plugs into your projector enabling it to connect to wireless networks.

To install the wireless module, remove the cable cover at the back of your projector. You can then insert the module into the wireless port. Once that’s done replace the cable cover.

2. Install the Epson iProjection Software on your Computer

The Epson iProjection Software works on both Windows and Mac devices. This software allows your computer to connect to your Epson projector over Wi-Fi.

You can simply install this software by running the Epson Projector Software CD on your computer. Follow the prompts to set up the software.

If you do not have the Epson Projector Software CD, do not fret. You can download the iProjection software from the Epson website.

Once the installation is complete, your computer is now set up for wireless projection.

Troubleshooting Your Epson Projector Wi-Fi Connection

If you are having trouble getting your Epson project to connect wirelessly to your computer. Here are a few steps to help you troubleshoot.

1. Make sure that both your laptop and Epson projector have Wi-Fi enabled

Both your projector and laptop need to be enabled to connect to a wireless network. On your computer make sure that you have installed the Epson iProjection Software.

If you use different wireless networks, your projector will not be able to link to the laptop since they will be on different networks.

3. Ensure that you are using the right software and module

Make sure that you have installed the specific software for your Epson projector. Different manufacturer’s will have different software for different models.

Software may not be compatible across different models so it’s important to ensure that the software you are using is compatible with your Epson projector.

Check with your user guide or Epson dealer to get the right Wireless LAN Module and iProjection software for your Projector model.

Conclusion

Wireless technology takes the hassle out of setting up your presentation. Epson projectors are easy to use over a wireless connection.

With the simple steps above you do not need an Epson projector with in-built Wi-Fi to use a wireless network. Simply install the iProjection software and a Wireless LAN Module and you are good to go.
