Go to your Router's "System Summary" and go to Home Network tab. Then click wireless settings. SSID = Network Name.

I am trying to put a c6380 printer into a wireless network, but it requires a WPA value, what would this value be, and where can I find it?


The WPA is the password you used to set up your router, typically a number or word or combination of the two. It will be the same that your computer uses to get on the wireless. If you don't remember what it is you'll have to reset your router and start again setting it up for both the computers and the printer. Make sure to write the new password down so you don't forget it. Best to write it on a piece of tape and put it on the router itself :)

On my HP photosmart how do I find my WPA Passphrase. I have a Nexxt solutions wireless-N broadband router and Cable & Wireless TP Link, routers. I live in Panama, Central America


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 can communicatewith your wireless router.

I have a CISCO Basic Wireless Router. Can this particular Router be connected to an HP Photosmart wireless printer? There is no WPS easy button on the router.


The router is capable of at least Wireless B (11MB) and possibly Wireless G (54MB) or Wireless N standard speeds. The HP Photosmart will do at least Wireless B speeds (and depending on which model - even possibly the faster "G" or "N" standards, too), so yes; it can be connected wirelessly.

You'll have to set up the the HP Photosmart printer the same way you set up other wireless devices to connect to the router. You'll need to input the SSID, Security Encryption Type (WEP or WPA) and associated security "Key" to match those settings that are in the router.

If you can't remember those settings, or never set up the wireless options, you'll have to access the Cisco Router's built in web set up page. Since you didn't include your particular model number, you'll have to look up this info at Cisco's web site yourself.

If you have trouble, include the model of your router and I'll see what additional info I can get for you.

Please rate this reply - thanks!

How do i set up my printer to print wirless after setting up the wireless wizard with my router


Presumably, the wizard helped you choose an SSID and a password.

On the controls on the HP printer, enter the SSID and the password,
and then the HP will try to connect to the wireless interface on the router.

I cannot get my new laptop to connect to my wireless router. I sees the router but will not connect properly. What can I do?


If you can see your wireless router but you cannot connect to it then the problem is the wireless card in the HP has not been configured with the wireless router's settings (ie the SSID, encryption etc.).
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps :-
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

I am trying to connect my wireless MacBook to my wireless Hp Photosmart C4500 series printer. HOW? Help!


Assuming that you are connecting your MacBook to the router then you already have a WiFi network with SSID (visible or not) and you just need to connect the printer to existing network. Go to menu on the printer to network configuration and join your network providing keyphrase/password if needed (WEP/WPA)

Attempting connection of a hp photosmart 7200 printer


What is the brand of your wireless router? Just make sure the SSID (signal's name) is configured on the wireless setting of your printer. They should have the same SSID configured. If the correct SSID is already configured on the printer's wireless settings, try to change the channel on your wireless router. Use channel 11. You can also try to do a power cycle. Turn off your wireless router and printer for about 1 minute. Power on router first, wait for the lights to stop blinking, then power on your printer.
