Go to command prompt..by clciking start run and type cmd

type ipconfig

look for the default gateway address
should be like 192.168.15.1 or something

use this address in your web browser and access your router

you should be able to either reset your security or see the passcode from here.

The wep key is something that was created by whoever set up your router. the network information can be found several ways
first way is to click start then run on pc type cmd. in the new window type ipconfig.. the default gateway will be shown as ip address.. type that ip address in explorer. it will be something like 198.162.1.254 the router will show its information on the page that opens but not the wep key. if you cant get the wep key you already have then reset your router with the button on the back of it and then follow the instruction above.. be sure to make a new wep key, do not leave you network unprotected..

Teele27@comcast.netHow do I turn on the wireless connection on my HP Photsmart C6300 All-in-One series printer/copier?


Make sure you know the SSID or 'name' of your home wireless network as well as the WEP or WPA password to connect to your network before you begin.
1) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. It has a wrench on it. 2) Continue pressing until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . 3) The Network Menu appears. 4) Press until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.
Do one of the following: 5) Press the down arrow key to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier. Then press OK. 6) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested. Note : If your router uses 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the first one. 7) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup. 8) Then if you haven't already done so, install your software.
That should do the trick! Hope this helps!

I cannot find information I need to connect to my wireless hp printer I need wpa key or wep passphrase


When you installed your wireless router, you should have configured its wireless interface:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your network
* set an encryption-level -- hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password or pass-phrase for your network

Enter the SSID/password on your HP printer, to connect it to your router.

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

Now we have gone wireless how do I set up my printer as wireless.? I have a photosmart C7280 all in one


a) Locate and write down your wireless router settings:
Network Name (also called SSID) :_________________________________________
WEP key/WPA Passphrase (if needed) :_____________________________________

IMPORTANT :You must have this information available to continue with your wireless setup. HP provides
a web-based tool called the Wireless Network Assistant [URL: www.hp.com/go/networksetup (English
only)] that can help retrieve this information for some systems. If the Wireless Network Assistant is unable
to retrieve your network information, you must consult the documentation for your wireless router, the router
manufacturer, or the person who originally setup your wireless network.

b) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. (wrench/spanner symbol)
c) Press down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . The Network Menu appears.
d) Press down arrow button until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected
networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.

e) Do one of the following:
- Press down arrow button to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier.
- If the network name that you wrote down does not appear in the list, you can enter it manually. Press down arrow button until Enter New Network Name (SSID) is highlighted, and then press OK . Then use the visual keyboard to enter the network name.
f) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested.
Note : If your router provides 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the fi rst one.
g) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup.


Visual keyboard tips:
To Select: use Arrow keys to highlight, and then press OK .
For mistakes: Select Clear .
For lowercase: Select abc
For numbers: Select 123
For symbols: Select .@!
When you are finished: Highlight Done , and then press OK .

I reset my wireless settings - both the Name (SSID) and input a new 128 bit WEP passphrase and then generate to create a key. I then check wireless networks and refresh. The new Name (SSID) appears but...


I recommend accessing the wireless settings on your router, cut-n-paste the WEP passphrase into a text document on your desktop, then copy and paste the info when you attempt to connect the next time.

If that doesn't work perhaps you need to backup and delete any wireless profiles previously associated with this device and then try again.

Let me know if this helps..

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

Wep passphrase


You will be able to get the wep key or passphrase from the wireless router or access point.

To some routers, the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP keys are found underneath the router itself. It you cannot see any, then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

This depends on what is the brand of your router.

If you let me know the brand and model I might be able to help you in checking the settings.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
