The security key is something you or whoever set up your network created unless your wireless router had one preset - check the router for a label which may contain the key. If you cannot find it please provide the router brand and model number.

I didn't have a password before and now I need one. Please explain.


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to connect to wireless internet


First, read about connections here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5536767-internet_connection_basics

Once your wireless router is connected and the wireless mode enabled, your computer that is wireless-enabled will see the wireless connection. You can select it and then click "connect."
This assumes several things:
1) you have a wireless router and it's set up correctly
2) you have a computer that is capable of connecting wirelessly
3) your wireless adapter is turned on (there is usually a switch or a Fn-special function key combo that can turn you wireless adapter on and off
4) you know the password to get into the wireless connection.

What does Enter key for tkip mean and where do I find it. Im trying to set up my new printer. Please help


tkip is a security mechanism for a wireless network. You are trying to connect the printer to a wireless network and it wants the security key for the network. You need to ask the person who setup the network for the key.

What does it mean by network security key


The name 'network security key' is itself self-explanatory. Every network has a security key and you will need this key to be a part of that network. Just as is the case of any other term that comes from the field of network engineering, there are a lot more details attached to this term, too. So, let us try to understand all the aspects related to network security key

An explanation as to why we need a wireless network security key is not even required. Still, if any one is skeptical about adding any complexity to their available wireless network, just think about it. Your wireless network range can be detected by any other computer with a wireless setup and that comes within the range of the network. So, without you knowing, it's very easy for any user to get connected to your wireless network and gain access to all the data that you intend to share only with those computers with which you have setup your wireless network. So, what is a wireless network security key and how is it useful in such situations?

Well, a network security key or passphrase is something like a password, which any user who wants to connect to your computer will require. But, I think that before we go into the details of figuring out, how to get network security key for wireless computer, we should take a look at the different methods of securing your wireless network

Ip address wrong, showing 192.168.254.1


Hi,
Solution Overview
This article explains how you can avoid having to run the Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant (Macintosh) after making changes to the router's security settings. The need to change these settings can arise if users forget their network key/passphrase or router web server password or if you have security concerns.
Printer response to security settings changes
The printer will respond with a flashing orange (pattlnk_6172008_1844-orgblksml.gif) Wi-Fi indicator light after the following actions are performed on the network or router/access point (AP):

  • -A change to the Service Set Identifier (SSID) or network name.

  • -A change to the security type (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2 personal).

  • -A change to the security network key/passphrase.

  • -A hard reset of the router followed by entry of security values that are different from the original values.

  • -The printer is moved to a network (AP) that has different security values but already has installed drivers and created ports. NOTE: Port reconfiguration may be required in this case. Click here for instructions.

In order to rejoin (associate and authenticate) the wireless network (WLAN), the wireless client (printer) has to be reconfigured with the router's new SSID, security type, and network key. This requires connecting the USB configuration cable to the host computer and running the Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant to apply the new security settings on the printer's wireless network adapter.
Solution: Change the printer settings first
Change the security settings on the printer while it is still communicating on the network before making the changes on the router. Understand that this will cause a temporary change in the Wi-Fi indicator light from pattlnk_6172008_1952-tn_grnsolproof.jpg to pattlnk_6172008_1844-orgblksml.gif. After you have made equivalent changes on the router, the printer's Wi-Fi indicator light will return to pattlnk_6172008_1952-tn_grnsolproof.jpg.
Procedure: How to change security settings via the embedded web server
If you change your AP security settings frequently, this procedure is for you.

  1. Open your web browser application and enter the printer IP address into the web address field, i.e. http://ip_address.

  2. Click on Configuration.

  3. Click on Wireless.

  4. Enter the SSID, security type/encryption, and network key that will be used to configure the router.

  5. Click Submit.

Configuration using a wireless computer.
  1. If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of your computer to Ad-hoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the printer.
  2. Wireless network terms and concepts
    When you configure the wireless network printer, you must ensure that your wireless network printer is
    configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main
    terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network printer.
    SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
    You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
    SSID
    Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
    (Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
    The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
    The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
    which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
    wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
    Channels
    Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 165.
    Authentication and encryption Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication (how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
    network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless device supports.
    Authentication methods
    The Brother printer supports the following methods:
    • Open system
    Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
    • Shared key
    A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
    The Brother printer uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
  3. I will advise you download this network manual and follow the instructions on chapters 3 and 4.

Make sure you have a G plus wireless adapter in your laptop. I'm assuming you have your desktop wired directly via a network cable.
