Connecting a wireless printer

I recently purchased a HP Wireless printer and want to add the printer to my wireless router, however in a recent move I have misplaced my paperwork and lost my security settings. Is there a way that I can recover these number to allow for setup up of my printer with my existing system. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

If it is a Linksys router:
Go to 192.168.1.1 in your browser address box.
you will be asked to type in a password in the login box that appears. The linksys router's default password is admin, leave the user name box blank
once the setup page appears, click on the wireless tab, then on the security tab. There you will see your encryption key.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My first thought would be to try different forms of encryption on your router. It's possible that your printer may not support the type of encryption you're trying to use which may be causing it to have trouble connecting. For example, if you're using WPA encryption, try switching to a WEP key instead. You can change all of these settings from your Wireless Router's configuration page.

You may be able to view th eexisting SSID and key by loggin into the router's web interface. You can do that by entering the IP address of the router into the address bar of your web browser of choice (it's usally http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1) If it asks for a login, it's usually "admin" and "admin" for the username and password. From there you can look for the wireless settings and get the SSID and password that way (or if it doesn't display the password, you can at least change it to something you do know.)

Having problems with 2wire router that keeps dropping the internet. All light are on except ethernet, does this mean the router is no good. Recently replaced the power cord which helped for awhile.


how do you connect to your router? If there's no ethernet cable plug in on the router, the Ethernet light on your router is suppose to be off. Also try to move your router 2-3 ft. away from any electrical devices like wireless phone, printer etc. because of electromagnetic interference. It may help your wireless connection to be stable and faster.

I have recently purchased the wire/wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.
