Hi there and welcome.

 

The WPA Phrase is the password XXXXX your network. This is the same password XXXXX enter in when your laptop first connected to the wireless network.

 

Enter this in and the installation will then complete.

 

Please let me know if you have any difficulties.

On your computer go to http://192.168.1.1 and press enter

 

The user is nothing (blank) and password XXXXX admin

 

Once logged on, go to wireless. Under security you will see passphrase. This you can enter into the printer.
