Things to take into account

Private WIFI connections

If your WIFI connection is secured through a WIFI password, then you might want to enter it into your projector in order to connect to it, or else you won’t be able to form a connection with your laptop wirelessly.

Keeping your WIFI secured is highly advised to prevent your projector from getting hijacked by unknown users nearby, especially while having a meeting, conference, or school project.

Installing Third-Party Software

If don’t want to download the Official EPSON PROJECTION software for whatever reason, you can simply opt-out of other third-party software to cast your images or videos such as easy MP projection which will let you connect to your laptop. 

However, using the official software is always advised because you might run into incompatibility issues due to un-optimization and bugs.
