Epson Stylus Photo R300 ink levels and the Airport Extreme

Written December 2, 2007. Tagged Hardware.

So Epson printer software doesn't display ink levels unless the printer is connected directly to a computer. I ran into this just now when connecting my girlfriend's R300 to our Airport Extreme.

Just wanted the Google to know that this doesn't seem to be a big deal after all, since

  • a red indicator light will flash on the printer when ink is running low; and
  • you can show ink levels on the printer display – just arrow below the last item in the "Advanced" menu, onto a second screenful, and there it is.
