When I connect the printer to the network, everything seems ok, but I get the message: "wrong password." I do not understand this, because I typed the password ***** our internet connection, (modem.) is there a specific password ***** the Linksys router?

The wrong password ***** message may be owing to the passphrase for the WiFi being entered wrongly.

It must be entered so that UPPER CASE letters are entered differently from lower-case letters, for instance. That is quite absolutely necessary.

If you aren't sure the LETTERS/letters portion of the passphrase have been entered correctly, then please tell me what printer - by maker and model # - you have, and I will tell you how to enter the passphrase (whatever it is, and with examples provided) so that it will work.
