Yes I am on the Wireless Lan setup menu and yes I am at my wireless network name. Now what do I do? I don't want to connect remotely because I don't want to pay any more for this.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
When you are at your wireless network name, please connect to it, then let me know what happens. Also, if you'd like me to help you remotely, I can waive the remote support free, so there is no extra fee, so don't worry. Please let me know; we guarantee our service. Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

It wants a passphrase when I hit the network name and would that be the same passcode that I am using for my wireless internet now? It would be ok to give me remote support.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
Yes, the passphrase is your wireless internet passcode/password. It is case-sensitive. Please try and check.
If it does not work, or if you do not remember your Wi-Fi/wireless password, then let me know the brand/model of your internet/wireless modem/router device, and let me know if you have a laptop/wireless computer that is currently able to connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, or Mac?
Yes, if I needed, I can connect remotely to your computer and fix. Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

the wifi light is on and the model of the modem is Ubee.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
Did you try my suggestion in my response in a couple of minutes ago? Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I put in my wireless password ***** made sure it was in the right case but it says: failed to connect to the access point. check the access point setting and try again. I tried this several times last night and it didn't work then either. My Mac is connected to wireless and I'm not having a problem getting on line.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
Please confirm your wi-fi/wireless password ***** key by doing the folowing on your Mac that is connected to wireless:
1. Open Finder/Apple logo, then select Applications, then Utilities. Then open Keychain Access
2. If needed, select System under Keychains column on the left, and/or select All Items under Category on the left.
3. Then you'll see your network name on the right column. (It will have a kind of AirPort network password.)
4. Double-click on your network name.
5. Select tiny box at Show password.
6. Enter your Mac administrator's password, and press the Enter key. If you don't have one, just leave it blank and press the Enter key.
7. Then you will see your wireless password ***** security key. (It is case-sensitive.)
Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
After I select the Show password ***** a window comes up that says OS X wants to make changes. Type an administrator's name and password ***** allow this. Then it says OS X wants to use the "System" keychain and there is then a place for Username and I typed in kcarrison and the next line says password ***** I tried all the passwords I have used and they aren't accepted.

Thank you. Can you please check at the back/bottom of the DVW326 modem device for the SSID (which is Wireless network name), and the (WPA...) Key/Password/Passphrase (it is case-sensitive.) Please let me know. Thank you.

Should my cable company be able to help me with this also since they are the ones who set the wireless up in this house for me?
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
I don't think they would help, since this is about setting up your printer. I will continue to help you, so don't worry.
Yes, on the printer, select / connect to the wireless network name called DVW326.EBA7DC-24G, then enter the password/key as shown on the modem. It should has 13 characters and it all should be in uppercase. Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My printer doesn't give me that wireless network name but it has my name as the access point name. I selected my access point name and the password/key on my modem but it is 13 but a combination of letters and numbers and I did it exactly as it was but it still failed to connect the the access point.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im sorry but I need to go to bed it is 12:25 am here and I will check my mail tomorrow for more answers from you.
Thanks.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. Please click on the website below:
http://192.168.100.1/
, then it should prompt you to login, then enter user for both the username and password (if it does not let you log in, then try your password)
, then click on the Wireless option
, then click on the Primary Network option
, then it will show your key/passphrase (it is case-sensitive.)
OK, good night, we will continue tomorrow. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tried this and it wouldn't take my password ***** the word user.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry. Who set up your router previously? Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cox Cable
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
You can ask Cox to see if they remember / know your Wi-Fi/wireless password.
Or you can press & hold the Reset button at the back of the modem/router DVW326 for about 15 seconds
, then it will let you log in the modem/router with user for both the username / password ***** the website http://192.168.100.1/
, then you can go to the Wireless option, Primary Network option and check.
But before resetting the modem/router, I recommend to connect an Ethernet/network cable from the computer to the modem/router device temporarily for now, and have the phone number for Cox ready, just in case there is issue with the internet after resetting the modem/router.
Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I already know my wireless password. I am using it right now for my computer. I wouldn't be able to be my computer without it. I just don't know why it won't take the password ***** my printer. I guess I will have to go and get someone from the Geek squad to come over and fix it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can't connect an ethernet/network cable from the computer to the modem because the modem is in another room.
I am so frustrated with this, I give up.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry, this is not a laptop? Do you mean on the computer, if you click on the wireless / Wi-Fi icon at the top, then select/connect to your wireless/network name, and it would ask for a password, then you enter you Wi-Fi/wireless password, and it will take it? Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it's not a laptop. I already said in the beginning of this conversation that it is an IMAC. I did click on the wireless/wi-fi icon and my network name and it doesn't ask me for a password.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will have to call Cox Cable because when I try and print something it says it's not connected.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
I'm sorry, the conversation was long, so I did not remember. Then how do you know you have the correct wireless password ***** it does not ask for it?
I do not want to disconnect the wireless from the iMac computer to test if your wireless password ***** ***** or not, since if you do not have the correct wireless password, then your internet would stop working on.
Do you have a laptop or tablet or smartphone, etc., so you can check your wireless password ***** it's correct or not?
First, you do not have the correct modem/router's login password ***** it could not log in at the router's website http://192.168.100.1. Secondly, the wireless/wi-fi password ***** not correct either; even if the wireless password ***** ***** I need to log in the router to adjust some settings in order to make it compatible with the printer, but your router's login password ***** ***** So you would either check with Cox for the router's login password ***** wi-fi/wireless password. Or you would have to reset the router. I think Cox will tell you to reset the router also.
Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I have an iPhone and an iPad.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
On the iPhone, go to Settings -> Wi-Fi, then tap on your wireless network name, then tap on the Forget option, then connect, then see if your wireless password ***** on the iPhone. Please let me know. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You are right, the password ***** Cox cable gave me when they set it up does not work on my iPhone.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. That's why I really wanted to confirm the wireless password. I recommend to check with Cox first, then I'll continue fixing your printer issue. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im on the phone with Cox and then I'll get back to the printer issue.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 year ago.
OK, then make sure Wi-Fi works on the iPhone first before trying on printer as it's easier to type in the password ***** the iPhone.
Whenever you can, please reply back at the box below to continue. Thank you,
