The WEP or WPA is the password to get onto the network. Think of the router as the doorman. The printer needs to get into the club so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access.

The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with your router to see how to access this information. Some routers provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key if this is the case.

I have been printing on my wireless network for many months. Today it won't print and when I do a "Wireless Setup Wizard" it requires a WPA Passphrase". When I get the data from Linksys router, it tells me that the Passphrase is N/A. How do get past this?

I dont know what where to find out my ssid for connecting my wireless printer to my pc i dont have no kind of manual so cant refer to that please help


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Now we have gone wireless how do I set up my printer as wireless.? I have a photosmart C7280 all in one


a) Locate and write down your wireless router settings:
Network Name (also called SSID) :_________________________________________
WEP key/WPA Passphrase (if needed) :_____________________________________

IMPORTANT :You must have this information available to continue with your wireless setup. HP provides
a web-based tool called the Wireless Network Assistant [URL: www.hp.com/go/networksetup (English
only)] that can help retrieve this information for some systems. If the Wireless Network Assistant is unable
to retrieve your network information, you must consult the documentation for your wireless router, the router
manufacturer, or the person who originally setup your wireless network.

b) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. (wrench/spanner symbol)
c) Press down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . The Network Menu appears.
d) Press down arrow button until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected
networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.

e) Do one of the following:
- Press down arrow button to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier.
- If the network name that you wrote down does not appear in the list, you can enter it manually. Press down arrow button until Enter New Network Name (SSID) is highlighted, and then press OK . Then use the visual keyboard to enter the network name.
f) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested.
Note : If your router provides 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the fi rst one.
g) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup.


Visual keyboard tips:
To Select: use Arrow keys to highlight, and then press OK .
For mistakes: Select Clear .
For lowercase: Select abc
For numbers: Select 123
For symbols: Select .@!
When you are finished: Highlight Done , and then press OK .
