Question about Computers & Internet
WEP/WPA keys are methods of encryption to protect your wireless network against intruders and hackers. If the install will not let you proceed without one or there is no means of doing this ( by checking a box proceed without key or something like that), you will need create one in your router. I assume that your pc is wired because if it was wireless your wireless card would also need the key before the router would communicate with your pc. Refer to your routers manual on how to create a key and after you do write it down. WPA is more secure. If your pc is wireless you'll also have to enter the key for your wireless card. If so I would recommend doing the router, then your NIC card and then your printer. If not, just create the key in your router (you'll probably have to reboot the router) and then do the printer. If you need the manual for your router or further help feel free to add a comment and I'll help you out.
