Do you use the wireless internet?
if so, the password you use to connect to your wireless network.

If you dont, the password is on the bottom of the 2Wire, on the sticker, the numbers and letters in the brackets: [xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]

The WPA passphrase is the security code that you used to set up the wireless networking. If you can't find that passphrase you will need to reset the device and start over, including for all of your other devices.

You will need to select your network, and "forget" it. Depending on the operating system you have the setting will be in a different location.

Sometimes just rebooting the computer and printer might be enough to reset it, but otherwise you need to input the key again because it would have a different identifier key number.

I have a D-link model DIR-628 and I want to use it for direct my wireless printer, the printer setup ask me for the WAP passphrase to end configuration but I don"t have it. How can I get it?


The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the wireless printer, or laptops or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the wireless printer, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Hello, I am trying to setup my wireless printer and it asks for a WPA Passphrase, but I do not know this, can you help?


You will need to talk to the person who set up your wireless network. A WPA paraphrase is a security set up in your wireless network, usually in a wireless router. You have to find out what wireless secuirty set up you have to access the router.

I am setting up a wireless printer and am being asked for a WPA passphrase. Where can I find this?


Hi Friend, In this case I would like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is set in the router's page. So, you will find the passphrase on the router's graphical user interface.
however, I would also like to tell you that the WPA passphrase is the same key that you have set for the wireless network to connect to the Internet

On my printer a hp c7280 all in one it ask me for


This is the passphrase for your wireless network. When connecting to the printer wirelessly, it needs to authenticate. The WPA phrase is what you typed in to access the wireless network with your computer if you did so.

The wireless router is a gate. The printer needs to get through the gate so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access. If you don't have this info readily available, please check your routers documentation as to how to retrieve it.

Hope this helps. Have a great day and don't forget to rate!

Printer asks for wpa passphrase I enter the correct passphrase but the printer says it is wrong


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

The WPA passphrase is a method of configuring the encryption code in the wireless router.
You can generate the encryption code using words and phrases so you can remember the encryption code.
You can view the encryption code in the wireless router or you can generate a new encryption code. If you generate a new encryption code then all the wireless cards in the computers on your wireless network will need to be changed so the computers can communicate/connect with the wireless router.

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.
