Managing the Connection
Your computer (in which you are going to run the printing job) must have the software, so you need to install the software first.
For the first time installation, using the USB cable is recommended. It’s temporary and it will make the wireless go easier.
Once the printer has been connected to your network, you can remove the cable.
If your computer’s operating system is Mac 10.6 or even 10.7 OS X, or you can’t find any USB cable around, then access the printer’s control panel to manage the wireless setting.

After all, Epson does provide different connection options for their users. You can manage a direct USB connection, but you need to have the USB cable and it isn’t included in the package.
You will have to buy a separate cable or have one on your own.
Another option is to enable wired network connection, which means that you need to have your own Ethernet (network) cable.
