Access to the functions seem to be restricted to users who have a pass phrase (or password). If it is a wireless printer the router is asking for the pass phrase (network access key) to allow the device to connect to the network. Once it is registered with the router you will not need to enter it again, unless you reset the router.

I just purchased PIXMA MX452, I've followed the set-up instructions with no difficulty but I'm at a point where I chose WPS and it gives me an error response. I then chose the other option and it is...

Your router should support WPS. It must have a button that has two curved arrows one directed upward (the right one) , the other downward (the left one)
You are supposed to check the option and press the button on the router.
If you do not use WPS, your network should have a key (password, passphrase) that you enter when you connect the first time. Check the configuration of your network.
