Enter & ok key


You must have forgotten something that came after Enter (....) and OK. I checked the whole manual and could not find such a string.
Please refer to the manual.

Printer will not print to the margin


What kind of printer? The print string may need to be manually entered. Try going into the properties section of the print screen dialog. You should find a box there to enter the parameters of your print string.

I have a netgear modem from virgin media and i cannot connect it to my wireless printer, the printer asks for a security string, what is this and where do i find it????


That is the wireless security key. You can check it inside the configuration page of your netgear router.
You can access your router by doing the ff steps:

1. Go to 192.168.1.1 using a browser
2. enter UN and Password
default UN: admin
default PW : password
3. once in, look for wireless or wifi configuration then security.
4. you can change the wireless security as you wish
5. save and apply.
6. use the wireless key on your printer and it should work.. :)

Regards.

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key 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.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

Security string


It seems that you are trying to connect the printer to wireless network with security.

Check the wireless network security settings. The printer requires the same key your system uses to connect to wireless network.

Changing to a secure setting


Go into your router's configuration page (see your router's manual for how to do this, it is an address that looks something like http://192.168.1.1). In there you want to find the wireless security section and change it to WEP security.

You will then need to enter a 64 or 128 bit WEP "key". This is your password to access the wireless network and the way you enter it is you enter a 10-character string (for 64 bit) or a 26-character string (for 128 bit) that contains only the numbers 0-9 and the letters A to F.

An example of 64 bit wep key is: 5145466d52
example of a 128 bit wep key: 3c2f2339483f2537373c57775f

Once you save your settings, your router should appear as a "secured" wireless network. When you try to connect, it will ask you for the key. Enter the same key you entered into the router.

That's it! The hardest part is finding the WEP section in the router's settings.
