Question about Computers & Internet
WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK 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.
WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

If you have your router at default settings do the following.
Open a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. This should pull up the settings for the router.
The username is likely "admin" or "administrator" and the password "admin", "administrator" or "password". Once you're into the router you can change the settings as you wish.

On my D-Link router, I type the IP address of the router into the internet browser and it gives me a log in page, when I log in, I can control the router from there including the WPA pass phrase.
