Wi-Fi indicator light is still orange

When the Wi-Fi indicator light is orange, it may indicate that the printer is:
Not configured in infrastructure mode
Waiting to make an ad hoc connection to another wireless device
Not connected to a wireless network
The printer may be unable to join the network because of interference, its distance from the wireless access point
(wireless router), or until its settings are changed.
These are possible solutions. Try one or more of the following:
Make sure your network does not have the same name as another network near you. For example, if you and your
neighbor both use a manufacturer's default network name, your printer could be connecting to your neighbor's
If you are not using a unique network name, consult the documentation for your wireless access point (wireless
router) to learn how to set a network name.
If you set a new network name, you must reset the printer and computer SSID to the same network name.
If you are using WEP security
A valid WEP key is:
Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard.
If you are using WPA security
A valid WPA passphrase is:
From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters in a WPA passphrase are case-sensitive.
Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A-F, a-f, and 0-9.
If your wireless network is not using security, then you will not have a security key. Using a wireless network with
no security is not recommended because it can allow intruders to use your network resources without your consent.
