If it is locked with a password you did not create, you can check the back of the printer for the default WIFI password as most models use that password as the default for logging into the embedded web server to make configuration changes.

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.
