Trying to connect Wireless printer

I'm trying to connect HPD7460 printer using wireless connection (802.11b or g). I key in the WEP key and connection fails. I THINK the BT/2Wire router (2700HGV?) is firewalling the hardware. How do I get the printer connected wirelessly?

    I have the same issue with hp 2510. I plug in the network cable as per instructions - it recognizes printer on network, but when I try to put in wireless settings; it won't recognize. I am putting in the correct network id & WEP keys.

    I cannot connect my HP C7280 wireless printer either. BT tell me it is the printer and not the 2700HGV Router at fault. I took the printer home and it connected without issue to my Orange Livebox.



    Any suggestions?



    Thanks

    Need some more info from you is this a new printer? you stated no connection, does the printer give any error messages, if not log on to the wireless routers web interface and make sure and Disable MAC address filtering on your wireless router also remember that the wep key is case sensitive, Make sure you are close enough to the router and that there is no interference in between the printer and wireless router (Large metal objects, cordless phones Aquariums).

    HP provides an online tool that might be able to find your wireless
    security settings automatically. Go to: www.hp.com/go/networksetup

    hope this helps

My first thought would be to try different forms of encryption on your router. It's possible that your printer may not support the type of encryption you're trying to use which may be causing it to have trouble connecting. For example, if you're using WPA encryption, try switching to a WEP key instead. You can change all of these settings from your Wireless Router's configuration page.

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

Am i able to connect to the internet using WLAN without te security keys (WEP)


If the wireless network that you are trying to connect, is unsecured then you can connect without the WEP key.
but if the wireless network is secured then you will need the KEY or the password for the wireless network. Without the key you won't be able to connect to the secured wireless network.
If you have the router then you can check the wireless settings of the router and find the wireless network key.

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

I have a wpn824-2 and I am trying to set up a connection from my lap top. It is asking me for a network key or wep key. Where do I find it?


You can get the WEP or Network Security Key from the Router.

Login to the Router as follows (make sure that it is connected to the Computer using LAN-Wired connection):

1. Start the Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefor or Safari.

2. Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL.

3. Type "admin" as user name and as "password" as password.

4. Go to the "Wireless Settings" option.

5. Set the Wireless Network Password (either WEP or WPA key) will be listed next to Security Encryption.


You may also use any third party utility to get the Wireless Security key save in the Computer (in which wireless connection is working and key is saved).


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.

WEP key fro netgear DG834G v3 WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM


Okay, first you will need to access your router (usually 192.168.0.1 or something like that) you will be asked for a user name and password. (admin password respectively if you never set these up previously)

From there you would click on Wireless Settings and scroll down to WEP Key. Whatever is typed in Key 1 is your WEP key. Write that down. Plug in those numbers for your printer and you should be go to go.
