I am trying to install a wireless printer and need the wep key. Can you help please?


Hi,
Sorry no one has helped you so far but this is a common question.
The WEP Key is usually found on the wireless modem itself. Usually on the bottom of the device. This is one of the reasons that WEP is not very secure.
If for some reason its not there it can also be found by opening a browser window and loading your modem access page (usually at address 192.168.1.1 or something close to this it depends on the modem).
There, under your wireless settings you will find the WEP Key and SSID etc.
If this doesn't help please re-post with more info. Like your wireless modem make and model and we can work from there.

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

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!

Need wep key i am trying to install a wireless printer and have no idea what the wep key is for my router. how do i find this out? thanks


Go to your wireless router software, log in, and click on the security setting section. Create a WEP key by providing a secret code or password that restricts access to the network.
It can be anything ya want, as long as it is same at "Both ends" IE: when ya try to acess, connect to the Network/Router, from say a lappy, ya gonna get asked for ya" WEP Key" < READ "Password".. So ya type in the number/password ya first chose and put into the router. You generally only have to do this once and it will remember the setting for future access.

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

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

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.

Wep key


You can define a new WEP key by entering into your router's configuration (usually http:192.168.1.1) and then go to "Setup" and "Wireless". Here you can define a new WEP key.
