Your WEP key can be found in your Wireless router. If you have wireless security password then that is your WEP key.

Every time I turn on my printer (HP Photosmart ePrint wireless) I have to put my wep key in before it will connect to my router - why? Is there any way I can set it so the printer remembers it


If you ignore it when it asks if you want to set up wireless, and key in 'NO' it will be fine. How to stop it from asking each time you turn it on, I'm yet to find out!

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.

I have a wireless Canon printer but I can't set it up as it asks for a WEP code...what is that?


WEP code is a network security key which is configured in wireless router. Ask the person for the key who has configured the wireless router. Or if you have set any key in your laptop/computer for wireless LAN card, then you need to enter this key.

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.

New epson Printer with WIFI asking for the PIN


You mean the wireless network key?

To get your wireless network key, do the following steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer, on the address bar type 192.168.1.1
2. There's no username and type admin on the password. If admin didn't work, use your own password.
3. When you have the Setup Page open, click on Wireless Tab, then click on the sub-tab Wireless Security.
4. There you can see the Security Mode. If the mode is set to WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless key. If the mode is set to the WPA-Personal, the Passphrase or the WPA Shared Key is your wireless key/PIN.
