WEP is the encrypted password for your wireless network. Hint: most cable providers that are supplying the wireless modem leave the password on the side or bottom of the wireless modem.

answer 5
WEP and WPA (and WPA2) are wireless security standards that routers use to protect wireless transmissions to and from wireless network devices (like laptops, tablets, smartphones and network printers). As you are trying to connect your printer to your network, you need to know the WEP, WPA or WPA2 wireless password (security key)that you've previously established on your router - it's that wireless password that you're being asked for on the printer setup screen. If you don't know that password, you may find it printed on a label on the router, or, if you've previously connected a wireless device to your network, you may be able to look the required password up on that device. Otherwise, you'll need to configure your router with a wireless password (exact procedure differs from router to router), and then use that to connect your printer.

answer 6
WEP means that the device uses network security which is comparable to a LAN (wired) connection. WPA is a higher security setting that seeks to improve on possible WEP issues. In general, your printer will hook up to your wireless network, and each option will be secured.

Question

Is Envy 4500 compatible with the new Microsoft 8.1 word program

I purchased a new hp all in one computer with 8.1 on it. I also bought the Envy 5530 all in one printer. I am having trouble with the printer and it won't print for the Word program. I have exchanged it once but

I have the 4500 and it connected to my computer which also has windows 8.1. Yours may connect easier since both products are HP. My computer is an Acer Aspire and it took some time to get it to recognize the printer.

Yes it will work as long as it is connected to the same internet. My computer is wired via ethernet cable to the router and they're in the same room. Meanwhile I can still print from my laptop upstairs since they're on the same Wi-Fi network.
