To connect your computer to the Internet via a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I am setting up a wireless printer and am being asked for a WPA passphrase. Where can I find this?


Hi Friend, In this case I would like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is set in the router's page. So, you will find the passphrase on the router's graphical user interface.
however, I would also like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is the same key that you have set for the wireless network to connect to the Internet

The passphrase is a way of setting up the encryption code in the wireless router. This is used to protect your wireless router from unauthorized access.
The passphrase is configured in the router wireless configuration and this configuration is applied to the wireless card in the laptop/computer to allow the laptop/computer to connect to the wireless router.

Trying to hook up an HP wireless printer to my computer and am being asked for WPA passphrase. Have no idea what that is or where to find it, but can't proceed until I do...


The WPA passphrase is a method of configuring the encryption code in the wireless router.
You can generate the encryption code using words and phrases so you can remember the encryption code.
You can view the encryption code in the wireless router or you can generate a new encryption code. If you generate a new encryption code then all the wireless cards in the computers on your wireless network will need to be changed so the computers can communicate/connect with the wireless router.
