WEP code is a network security key which is configured in wireless router. Ask the person for the key who has configured the wireless router. Or if you have set any key in your laptop/computer for wireless LAN card, then you need to enter this key.

My printer is asking for a WEP key. I do not kno where to find this.

The WEP is the password that will let your computer access your secure wireless network. Look at the back of your router. There should be a sticker that has the WEP key on it. It is a long code of numbers and letters. Type that code in when it asks for the key

Setting up wirless connection for D110 Photosmart printer. Like everyone else asking for the wep number. Where do we find this?

WEP or web encyption protocol is the encryption code used to protect wireless systems to stop others "borrowing" your broadband. If you haven't got one set up I suggest you do so. Use letters (upper and lower case mixed) and numbers. This is the code then that you give your printer. Make a not once you add it into your router and keep it safe.

I am installing a wireless printer to my laptop. it finds my network when i click on it i am asked for a WEP key. I anot sure what they are looking for.

A WEP key is a security code needed for communication with wireless router so if you don't know that code you cannot connect to router and through the router to printer.
You can change or view that code by entering in wireless router setup.

WEP key fro netgear DG834G v3 WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM

Okay, first you will need to access your router (usually or something like that) you will be asked for a user name and password. (admin password respectively if you never set these up previously)

From there you would click on Wireless Settings and scroll down to WEP Key. Whatever is typed in Key 1 is your WEP key. Write that down. Plug in those numbers for your printer and you should be go to go.
