Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, I'm trying to create a wireless network. I went through the wireless network setup wizard, got an network name (SSID) and key (WEP). But this network is not recognized by my wireless printer. The printer wireless configuration wizard told me to look on my speedtouch website thingie (which i access by typing my IP in my web browser address bar) for a working SSID, but I couldn't find any... Please help! Thanks!

I don't know how to find my network key (wep/wpa key)


When you installed the router, you should have followed the instructions on how to "login" to the router, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to set:
* an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (use: WPA)
* a network-password

It's those values that you need to use to connect to your wireless network.

Now we have gone wireless how do I set up my printer as wireless.? I have a photosmart C7280 all in one


a) Locate and write down your wireless router settings:
Network Name (also called SSID) :_________________________________________
WEP key/WPA Passphrase (if needed) :_____________________________________

IMPORTANT :You must have this information available to continue with your wireless setup. HP provides
a web-based tool called the Wireless Network Assistant [URL: www.hp.com/go/networksetup (English
only)] that can help retrieve this information for some systems. If the Wireless Network Assistant is unable
to retrieve your network information, you must consult the documentation for your wireless router, the router
manufacturer, or the person who originally setup your wireless network.

b) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. (wrench/spanner symbol)
c) Press down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . The Network Menu appears.
d) Press down arrow button until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected
networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.

e) Do one of the following:
- Press down arrow button to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier.
- If the network name that you wrote down does not appear in the list, you can enter it manually. Press down arrow button until Enter New Network Name (SSID) is highlighted, and then press OK . Then use the visual keyboard to enter the network name.
f) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested.
Note : If your router provides 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the fi rst one.
g) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup.


Visual keyboard tips:
To Select: use Arrow keys to highlight, and then press OK .
For mistakes: Select Clear .
For lowercase: Select abc
For numbers: Select 123
For symbols: Select .@!
When you are finished: Highlight Done , and then press OK .

Need my wireless SSID Name & Network key


The SSID is simply the name of the WiFi Network, the Network Key or WEP/WAP Key, is generated when you first setup a WiFi point, For the first time you must copy this key to a document & use it when you try to first login, to the WiFi network. So the only place that information can be found is in the WiFi's setup.

Hi,
SSID is the wireless networks name you want to access.

WEP is a special hexadecimal key to secure your network means if you want to connect a wireless network you will have to put this key.

Wireless doesn't work


Hi Friend,
Kindly check the below given instructions,

To access the WIRELESS (WLAN) settings window, click on the Wireless Setup button in the SETUP directory.

WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS

1.Click on the Enable Wireless box to allow the router to operate in the
wireless environment.

2.The SSID identifies members of the Service Set. Accept the default
name or change it to something else. If the default SSID is changed, all
other devices on the wireless network must also use the same SSID.

3.Enable Auto Channel Scan so that the router can select the best
possible channel for your wireless network to operate on.

4.The Wireless Channel can let you select the channel of your access
point. Channel availability is different for different countries due to their
regulation.

5.Select 802.11 Mode to operate in b/g/n mode. Or select specified mode
to use.

6.Channel Width, Maximum rate for 20 MHz is 130 Mbps. Maximum rate
for 40 MHz is 270 Mbps.

7.Transmission Rate, suggest keeping the Best (automatic) selection.

8.Click on the Hide Wireless Network box to allow the router to stop broadcasting its SSID.

WIRELESS SECURITY WIZARD


1.Click on the Security My Wireless Network button to enter the
2.SECURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK window.

SECURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK
1.Input the SSID.
2.Select the Wireless Channel.
3.Select the Encryption type. WPA-PSK is more secure than WEP 64 bit.
4.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply the settings

WIRELESS SECURITY MODE - WEP

1.WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) encryption can be enabled for
security and privacy. WEP encrypts the data portion of each frame
transmitted from the wireless adapter using one of the predefined keys.

2.The router offers 64 or 128 bit encryption with four keys available.
Select WEP Key Length from the drop-down menu. (128 bit is stronger
than 64 bit)

3.Specify the encryption key from the Current Network Key drop-down
menu.

4.Enter the key into the WEP Key field 1~4. (Key length is outlined at the
bottom of the window.)

5.Select Authentication type from the drop-down menu. (Shared is
better than Open)

6.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply settings.

Check and revert back

Regards,
Ayyasam
