    * Check to see if your wireless router or access point is set to not
    broadcast its Network name (SSID). If so, you will need to enter the
    SSID manually in the printer’s setup software. If your wireless router
    or access point has wireless security enabled, you will also need to
    know what kind of security it is using.
    * Make sure the printer is within range of the wireless router or wireless access point.

    * Try connecting to the wireless router or access point with your
    computer or another device to confirm that it is working correctly.
    * Avoid placing the printer near a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or large metal objects such as a filing cabinet.

    * Make sure there aren’t any access restrictions (such as MAC address
    filtering) set on the wireless router or access point. If access
    restrictions are set, register the printer’s MAC address on the router
    or access point. Print a Network Status Sheet to obtain the MAC
    address. Then see your router or access point’s documentation for
    instructions.
    * Make sure that you entered the correct WEP key or
    passphrase for your wireless network. WEP keys are either ASCII or Hex
    and passphrases are case-sensitive.
    * Make sure that the printer is connected to your network with a Ethernet cable during the installation.
    * Make sure the printer is turned on.
    * If you see the message “The combination of IP address and subnet mask is invalid”, try the following solutions:

    o If your router or access point is set to assign IP addresses using
    DHCP, try setting the printer’s IP address setting to Auto.
    o If
    you want to manually configure the printer’s IP address, click Change
    when you see the Current IP Address Status screen and enter the IP
    address and subnet mask.
    o Make sure your computer is connected to
    your wireless router or access point. See your router or access point’s
    documentation for details.
    o Set a unique IP address for your
    printer. All IP addresses are written in segments of four numerical
    values. The last segment must be set to a unique numerical value
    (between 1 and 254). When the router is a set to assign IP addresses
    using DHCP, set the printer’s IP address to a value that doesn’t
    conflict with the IP address range assigned by the DHCP server.

    For example:

    IP address of your router or access point: 192.168.1.1 IP address of
    your printer: 192.168.1.3 For the subnet mask, 255.255.255.0 is
    normally used for small-scale networks (all devices on your network
    should use the same subnet mask). Also, when a gateway value is set,
    use the same value as the IP address for your wireless router or access
    point.

How to connect to wifi on pro 950


I found this on google. Hope this helps:

Q: I've tried to install the product's software for a wireless connection, but cannot complete the installation. What should I do? A: Do the following: Important: You'll need to know your network name (SSID) and network password before you can set up your product. If you don't know them, contact the manufacturer of your router or the person who set up your network.
If you know your security settings, continue with these steps:

  1. Reset the product's network settings. Press the home_button.gif home button, if necessary. Select Setup. Scroll down and select Restore Default Settings. Select Wi-Fi/Network Settings. You see a confirmation screen. Select Yes to reset the selected settings. (Select No if you want to cancel the operation.)
  2. Turn your router off and back on. Important: If your router is connected to other devices, you may need to re-establish the connection for the other devices on the network.
  3. Close all applications (including any screen savers, virus protectors, and firewall software) before you install the software.


  4. Uninstall the printer software (Windows only), then reinstall the printer software.
If the steps above for a wireless connection do not help, check the additional troubleshooting tips below, then try steps 1 through 4 again.

  • If you're setting up the printer for the first time, make sure you have the correct SSID (wireless network name) and if security is enabled, the wireless network password (WEP key or WPA passphrase). This information is stored in your network's router and you may be able to access it by logging onto the router from your computer and checking its setup screens. If you are unable to access the information, contact the person who set up your network or the manufacturer of your router or access point for details. (Epson will not be able to provide this information to you.) You'll need to know the SSID and wireless network password before you set up the printer.
    Note: The SSID and security key or passphrase are case sensitive. Be sure to correctly note uppercase, lowercase, and numeric/special letters.
  • If your wireless router or access point is set to not broadcast its Network name (SSID), you'll need to enter the SSID manually in the printer's setup software. If your wireless router or access point has wireless security enabled, you'll also need to know what kind of security it is using. Epson will not be able to provide this information to you. If you don't know this information, you'll need to contact the manufacturer of your router or the person who set up your network.


  • Make sure the product is within range of the wireless router or wireless access point.


  • Avoid placing the printer near a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or large metal objects such as a filing cabinet.


  • Check to see if access restrictions, such as MAC address filtering, are set on the router or access point. If access restrictions are set, add your product's MAC address to your router's address list. If you're unsure on how to do this, contact the manufacturer of your router for instructions. To obtain your product's MAC address, print a network status sheet.


  • Disable any settings (such as AP Isolation, Client Isolation, or Privacy Separator) on your wireless router or access point that would prevent wireless devices from communicating with each other.


  • Make sure your system meets the requirements.


  • Make sure all applications (including any screen savers, virus protectors, and firewall software) are closed.


  • Make sure you have administrative rights or software installation privileges to your computer.

I have a Arris TM722 modem and I need to know my SSID number and password? please help me!


An SSID is the name of your wireless network connection and doesn't have to be a number. As I don't believe that this modem supports wireless connectivity, it should not prompt you for an SSID or a password. If the modem is plugged into a wireless router however, and a wireless network has been set up, the SSID will be related to the wireless router.

Generally most devices can scan for the SSID when attempting to connect to a wireless connection. If there is an "automatic" setting or a "find networks" button, you can try that and choose your wireless connection from the list provided. For a password, you may need to ask whomever helped set up your wireless network.

You have to make sure the following are used on your wireless settings on your router -


Wireless Network Security SSID (32 chr), WEP 64/128bit, WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)


This means your SSID is less than 32 chars and your running either WEP, WPA. Or WPA2


Then on your printer make sure you have the wireless enabled and Just a good rule of thumb - When putting in a wireless printer just fudge with the wirless/TCP/IP settings on the printer until you can ping the printer from the PC. Do NOT bother running the software installs until you know you have a good ping from the printer as it will just bomb out.

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.

Connecting copier machine wireless


Configuration using a wireless computer.
  1. If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of your computer to Ad-hoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the printer.
  2. Wireless network terms and concepts
    When you configure the wireless network printer, you must ensure that your wireless network printer is
    configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main
    terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network printer.
    SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
    You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
    SSID
    Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
    (Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
    The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
    The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
    which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
    wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
    Channels
    Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 165.
    Authentication and encryption Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication (how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
    network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless device supports.
    Authentication methods
    The Brother printer supports the following methods:
    • Open system
    Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
    • Shared key
    A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
    The Brother printer uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
  3. I will advise you download this network manual and follow the instructions on chapters 3 and 4.

For this specific issue about installing the printer to a wireless connection. You need to install the software first as a usb connection. After the successful installation of the usb connection then you can add a device and it should work.

Step one: Gather the necessary hardware and information Follow the procedure below before obtaining your wireless network:
  1. Obtain your network SSID and WEP. To simplify this process, press the Wireless button on the all-in-one, and select Restore Network Defaults . This turns wireless off and sets the all-in-one's SSID to hpsetup .
  2. Press the Wireless button to turn wireless back on. Look for hpsetup when you select your network.
  3. Make sure that wireless is enabled on the all-in-one.
  4. Make sure that the computer that will be using the all-in-one has access to the router/access point.
You will need the following to set up the product on a wireless network:
  • A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless access point.
  • A desktop computer or laptop with wireless networking support or a network interface card (NIC).
  • Broadband Internet access is required for some features of the HP software to function. Cable Internet or DSL are examples of Broadband Internet access. NOTE: If you connect the unit on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • The network name, or Service Set Identifier (SSID). NOTE: The SSID is obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.
  • The Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) passphrase, if needed. CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP strongly recommends using a password or passphrase and a unique SSID to your access point. Your access point might have been shipped with a default SSID, which can be accessed by other users using the same default SSID. For more information on how to change the SSID, see the documentation that came with your access point. NOTE: The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.Some access points provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key (index 1) when setting up the wireless network.
  • If the network is set up with an Apple AirPort base station and you are using a password instead of WEP HEX or WEP ASCII to access this network, you need to get the equivalent WEP key. See the documentation that came with the Apple AirPort base station for more information.
  • If IP address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed.
  • If MAC address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed. NOTE: HP cannot set up or change the SSID, WEP key or WPA passphrase. This information is required before connecting the HP All-in-One to the wireless network.
Step two: Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network Follow the procedure to connect the unit to the wireless infrastructure network:
  1. Insert the software CD.
  2. Click Install .
  3. Click Next on the Please Allow All HP Install Wizard Processes screen.
  4. Select Easy Install on the Choose Easy Install or Advanced Install screen.
  5. Select Through the Network on the Connection Type screen. Figure 2: Connection Type screen c01160788.jpg
  6. When it doesn’t find your device, click Next . Figure 3: Using Network Setup c01164746.jpg
  7. Plug in your device via USB (it will tell you when to disconnect later). Figure 4: Making a connection to your all-in-one c01160790.jpg
  8. Select your network from the list, and click Next . Figure 5: Wireless Network Setup c01160791.jpg
  9. Enter your WEP key (if applicable). Figure 6: Specifying your network security settings c01160792.jpg
  10. Once it has completed connecting to the network, click Next . Figure 7: Network connecting completed c01160793.jpg
  11. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and the All-in-One . Figure 8: Disconnecting the USB cable c01160794.jpg
  12. Click Finish to complete the software installation process. Figure 9: Software installation complete c01160795.jpg
