My Xbox360 is asking for a pass phrase for Belkin but I don't know what a pass phrase is because its not on the bottom of my router?


The "passphrase" is the WPA2 security password that the router uses to permit access to the wireless network. ALL wireless devices on the network have to use this password to get onto the network. Whomever is controlling the router should know this password.

What does the canon pixma mx452 mean when it ask for passphrase.


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.

How do i get a pass phrase for my hp photosmart pluse


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, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops, wireless printer and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops, wireless printer and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

My printer is asking me for a WPA passphrase in order to connect to the router. Where do I find this?


Your printer must have wireless capability. It is asking for your wireless security passphrase in order to join the wireless network. This passphrase is the key/phrase that you created when you setup your wireless network. You will need to login to your router and go to wireless setting section to find out what the passphrase is if you don't remember it. Thanks

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.

DONT KNOW THE NETWORK KEY AND CANT GET ON THE NETWORK


You can use a pass-phrase scanner which will find and display the network pass-phrase and key. Or if its a small network then you can reset the router to factory defaults and use the default password to re-setup the network.. Sometimes its easier to reset to factory defaults but you have to have all your ducks in a row. You need to know the WAN details and any printer specifics and open port details etc.

..and you will have to setup every machine on the network to use the new passphrase/key. ..ooorrrr get a network scanner to reveal the pass phrase/key

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

Printer asks for wpa passphrase I enter the correct passphrase but the printer says it is wrong


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

What is the passphrase needed to connect to my computer


A pass phrase is a series of alpha characters SIMILAR to a password, but they are usually limited to a certain number of characters.

These are "hashed" or converted to a numerical value for use as a numerical code used as a "password" for example the WEP code used by DSL modem to connect to the internet.

You USUALLY could enter the numerical code as Hexadecimal BUT with a pass phrase it is easier to remember something that is an alphabetic word or phrase and let the software convert it to the numerical code. USUALLY no spaces are allowed in such a pass phrase.
