I can't print from my wireless printer. It wants to know my WPA security pass phrase. Where do I find this?

Thanks.

If you go to a computer that is connected to the wireless network then open the control panel and select Network and Internet , then select Homegroup, then select view and print the Homegroup password and on the next page will be the Homegroup password.
