The term "Network Key or Passphrase" indicates your printer is asking for a WiFi password, but the SB6141 is not a WiFi capable device at all, it's just a Cable-to-Ethernet device. So then, you need to look at your WiFi router, which should be connected with an Ethernet cable to your SB6141. If this doesn't match your setup, you'll either need to get a WiFi router hooked up (that process will contain the answer to your question) or simply use an Ethernet cable for your printer.

Got a canon pixma mg3250 wireless printer set it up as told put in cd rom seemed to have done everything i was supposed to but it wont print


A wifi printer needs to connect to your wifi network and it needs to be recognized by Windows.If your wifi network is already set up and working with other devices (tablets, smartphones, etc) , then you may be dealing with a simple security issue ( you may need to enter the proper passphrase, network key, etc.when you set up the printer) . If you do not have a wireless network already set up, then things get very complicated!!!

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.

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

Got a new router and now can't use my canon mp620 wirelessly.


IT sounds like to need to reset up your printer for the new router:
Gather the following information from your router: • Access Point Name/Network Name: Also referred to as SSID. A name to identify the specific access point. • Network Key: Also referred to as encryption key, WEP key or WPA/WPA2 passphrase, Pre-Shared key if you used one
use the buttons of the front of the printer near your display to select Settings, then press the OK button
Select Device settings, then press the OK button
Select LAN settings, then press the OK button. Select Wireless LAN settings and update with the new information you collected earlier.
Hope this helps

I am setting up a wireless printer and am being asked for a WPA passphrase. Where can I find this?


Hi Friend, In this case I would like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is set in the router's page. So, you will find the passphrase on the router's graphical user interface.
however, I would also like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is the same key that you have set for the wireless network to connect to the Internet

Where do i find network key for canon mx340. i am trying to set up wireless connection. I cannot complete wireless connection


The network key is also known as the encryption key or passphrase. It is the password on your wireless network that you have to type in other the computer with a wireless device to connect to the Internet. You normally set it using by connecting to your wireless router using its IP address when it is connected to a computer. Use the Internet to find the default IP address for your wireless router. It is normally in the form 168.192.1.1 or something similar.

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
