installing wireless printer

    Question

  • Hello, we recently moved. When i tried to print something i was informed that my computer could not find the printer. When i tried to reinstall the wireless printer , the printer is asking for the wpa/wep address. I can't recall having to enter this when i first installed the printer. If i did i don't remember. I have no idea where to find this information. Please help!!!

    Thank You,

    Dennis

  • Hello,

    I'd ask the printer manufacturer, or in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

  • Hi Dennis,

    Since you have moved recently (assuming that you have moved to a new house), you wireless network has probably changed.

    Your wireless printer is probably not connected to this wireless network yet, hence its asking for the new Wireless SSID and WPA/WPE Network key for that new Wireless Network.

    If your computer/laptop is already connected to the WiFi you should already know the WiFi details.

    Enter the Wireless Network Name (SSID) and WPA/WPE key (WiFI Password) on the printer and restart the printer before you try to re-install it.

    Let us know, how it goes.
