Are you using the printer as a standalone device or is it associated with an wireless access point?


Follow the instructions on this document to change the security type to WPA if you have it set up using WEP. Change the network key as well.


WEP is the currrently weakest security type available. It is very easy for anyone who is so inclined,  to crack it and get your passphrase.
