Cant you use WPA2, wep is very weak and should never be used if you have the option to use WPA.
If you have used WPA2 security ( you choose the password )
and the printer is asking for a wep key ( the router generates a long key , you dont choose it).
That will be the reason you can't connect, if the printer cant be changed to WPA, you only have the option to log on to the router and change security to WEP, which i would not recommend

HP Photosmart c6380 wireless printer works fine, but windows xp does not recognize the scanner


  • First, we need to create the Ad hoc network that will provide wireless connection between your computer and printer. On the right hand portion of the Taskbar, you can right-click the wireless icon and choose "View Available Wireless Networks". Or you can double click the wireless icon, then click "View Wireless Networks". It is also accessible from the Control Panel. Either way, the same window as shown in step 2 will pop-up.

  • setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.2-120x120.jpg View Wireless Networks The Wireless Network Connection window shows you all the wireless networks in range including the network where you are connected. If you have many neighbors with wireless networks, it will all show up. Click "Change advanced settings" and it will bring up the Wireless Network Connection Properties window. Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab and at the bottom click "Advanced" button.
  • 3 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.3-120x120.jpg Wireless Networks Properties From the Advanced option window, choose "ad hoc" networks only. This is just to simplify the process. You should also bring this back to original setting after you are done connecting via Ad hoc. You may choose to skip this step if you wish and you should still be able to make the connection without a problem.
  • 4 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.4-120x120.jpg Create the ad hoc network Click the "Add" button and type in a name for your Ad hoc network. Make it more intuitive so you can easily recognize your own network just in case there are other Ad hoc in range. Check off the automatic key and enter a 5 or 10 digit network key. This is the same key that you will input at the printer later. Click OK and then OK again. You are now connected to the Ad hoc network. You are half way through.
  • 5 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.5-120x120.jpg ad hoc network Make sure the printer is ON as well as the wireless radio button. On the printer control panel, press the setup button to access the menu. Go to Wireless Menu and press OK. Press the arrow to go to Setup Wizard and press OK so the printer will automatically search for wireless networks in range. From the list of networks, find the SSID or Ad hoc name that you created and press OK and type in the network key using the alphanumeric keypad on the printer. The printer should confirm the connection in less than a minute. That's it! Try to print a test page to make sure everything is working properly.

    Just purchased laptop with windows vista home premium


    If your PC has a wireless card, you can setup an AD-HOC network :

    If your PC is XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/adhoc.mspx

    If your PC is Vista: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/help/293c504f-b944-4d5d-835c-f080129bd5dc1033.mspx

    If your PC only has a wired Ethernet connection, you may still connect the two using a Wireless Access Point/Router.

    Once you have the two computers connected, you may do whatever networked operations you would like:

    File & Printer Sharing is the most common:

    Adding Dell to Airport extreme


    You wireless card can be controlled 2 ways, the card Wireless Utility (Dell Wireless or Intel Wireless Utility are the normal default ones) and the "Windows Zero Config" Windows wireless utility. You may need to go in to the Dell/Intel Wireless utility, and select "Let Windows Manage My Wireless" You should then get a popup saying wireless networks are available, click that balloon, select your network, and click connect. If secure, at that point you'll be prompted to type the passkey. If you are using an older Wireless card, it may only support WEP security. Vista and newer systems use a newer protocol, WPA.
