You may need to verify the wireless security enabled in your router. Check from your router's setup page the security type and security key enabled in it to connect your wireless printer.

Hope this helps!

I got a new laptop and am trying to connect to the internet, but it is asking me for the Network Security Key. I don't know where to find it. Can you help??


Network security key is a encryption key.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

My son, following instructions on a youtube video changed my security settings from WPA to WEP to connect his DS box. I managed to changed back to WPA but my network is down. No connection to my laptop and...


You will need to select your network, and "forget" it. Depending on the operating system you have the setting will be in a different location.

Sometimes just rebooting the computer and printer might be enough to reset it, but otherwise you need to input the key again because it would have a different identifier key number.

Whats a wpa key? I have tried connecting to my router on my wireless device and my wireless device ask's for a wpa key? is it the same as a lan key?


WPA <<===>> WIRELESS PROTECTED ACCESS

You need to use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to the router, and then access the web-server inside the router, and then run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard". When you do, you will set:

* the SSID ("network name") -- pick anything you prefer
* the encryption-level (hint: use 'WPA')
* the password for the network -- pick anything you can remember

Then, from a wireless device, do a "View Available Wireless Networks".
Select the SSID, and enter the password, to make a connection.

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

Thanks for using Fixya,

Lexmark wi fi printer need the wap code for the roter


If your wireless network is secured, the WPA or WEP security encryption key is a requirement to successfully connect the Lexmark printer to a wireless network. These keys (WPA or WEP), if you don't know it, can be obtained by accessing your wireless router through the computer. Your wireless router manufacturer or your internet service provider can better assist you in obtaining that info. Thanks.

New epson Printer with WIFI asking for the PIN


You mean the wireless network key?

To get your wireless network key, do the following steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer, on the address bar type 192.168.1.1
2. There's no username and type admin on the password. If admin didn't work, use your own password.
3. When you have the Setup Page open, click on Wireless Tab, then click on the sub-tab Wireless Security.
4. There you can see the Security Mode. If the mode is set to WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless key. If the mode is set to the WPA-Personal, the Passphrase or the WPA Shared Key is your wireless key/PIN.
