What information do I need to know before I install my product on my wireless network?
You'll need to know the following:
- Network name (SSID) (This is the name of the wireless network that is set up on your router or access point).
- WEP Key or Passphrase (This is the network security password).
You should also write down whether the WEP key is in ASCII or hexadecimal format. If the WEP key is 5 or 13 characters, it's ASCII. If it's 10 or 26 characters, it's hexadecimal. If your router gives you a choice of WEP keys to use, note which one is currently active. Usually the first WEP key is active, unless you've selected a different one. If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note them correctly. The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and WPA-PSK.
