My current "wireless printing issues" are similar, but exactly the opposite, to yours!!!
I have an Epson SX515W printer which has been setup to connect wirelessly ONLY to my Router to provide wirelessly printings for my daughter's Windows 7 laptop, which has an equivalent wireless connection to the router of course, very successfully l. However recently I would like to do the same for my son's new W8.1 laptop as well. That's right my son's laptop has this infamous W8.1 OS installed.
I installed the Epson's recommended SX510W series driver, as no equivalent SX515W's, to my son's W8.1 laptop this morning and ONLY being asked by the SW installation that to connect my son's USB port to the printer's USB port (Please noted that my son's W8.1 already has a working wireless connection to the router and in my previous W7 installation the SW would give options for "USB" or "wireless connection" as well. As a result my son's W8.1 laptop is only being able to print whenever its USB port is used with the printer's, but not wirelessly. As the printer has always been setup to print wirelessly, so the only issues is HOW to setup this W8.1 OS to redirect its printing-process from its USB's port to its wireless port instead! I have been looking into W8.1's Control Panel> HW & Sound > Devices & Printers > Epson SX510W Series Properties etc for options of being able to re-direct its printing from currently USB 0nly to its wireless port without success....
Could some one give me a suggestion here or else where for my issues as I'm not intending to hijack the OP's issues!!!
P.S: The Epson SX510W is also a wireless capable printer.
