    Did you set a WEP or WPA key. Some units will not recognize WPA.

Your printer and your router need to be set for exactly the same type of encryption. WEP is out of date, and your printer may use the better WPA. I would set both router and printer for WPA & TKIP.

Printer wont reconise ink cartrige


Make sure you've removed the protective tape from the cartridges that you inserted into the printer and that the cartridges were installed properly. Are you getting an error message or is the printer just not printing? If you get an error such as Error U041 or U043, the printer may just be low on ink or have a bad ink cartridge.

Hpj4680 will not print after adding wep pw


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

Select your operating system and download and run the network diagnostic utility and click on advanced tools on it, it will show you an option of retrieve wep key, click on that and get your wep key, you can also contact your network service provider to find this.
You can also find the wep key on the back of the router , where the model # is written.

Cant get my printer s305 to connect to wireless,wont accept wep key ,, any way round it, please help


Good day! There are things you need to check to successfully connect the printer for wireless connection.
1. Make sure the wifi light on the printer is solid orange before continuing. If not, go to Setup > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Defaults. Wifi light should turn off, then wait for it to turn solid orange.
2. WEP key can be ASCII or HEX(hexadecimal) depending on what was assigned to it. You may be using an incorrect WEP key. Just to make sure, access your router setup page and double-check the WEP key assigned to it. If you don't know how to access the router setup page, you can always ask assistance from either your internet service company or the router's manufacturer.
Once you get the correct WEP key and wifi light solid orange on the printer, try connecting the printer again for wireless connection. Good luck!

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

How do I find my wep key as I need this to connect my printer to my router in order to use this on my network


Option1:

You can find the WEP key of your Wireless networl after login to the Router. The WEP key is saved in the Router.

Option 2:

If you are using a Computer with your wireless network and if the Wirelees Key (WEP key) is saved in the Computer than you can use any application like "Wireless Key Viewer" or SIW for view the saved WEP key in the Computer.

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