@Jo2611 Yes, WPA passphrase is the wireless password and for more details on connecting the printer to the wireless network, check this out:


Connecting your wireless printer

  1. Unpack your printer.
  2. Follow the setup instructions to remove packaging.
  3. Plug in the power cord, turn on the printer and install print cartridges. Allow the printer to go through its startup routine, including printing an alignment page (if applicable).
  4. Choose one of the connection methods described below. If your printer supports it and you choose an Ethernet (wired) connection, connect it now and skip to installing printer softwareNote: while using an Ethernet connection the printer's wireless system is disabled.

If you want to print wirelessly without a wireless router, learn about it here.
