I never got the chance to enter the WPA passphrase.

Perhaps that's one of the issues. Pls read below the print screen about applying the WPA passphrase. Is your wireless network secured with WEP, WPA or WPA2?

Is the printer set to auto detect DHCP?

Do a network printout and have a look at what IP it has picked up (or do you already know)?

@aem

Please look at the screenshot I sent above this. It shows the network printout.
Yes the printer is set to auto detect DHCP.
The MAC address si visible, but the IP never came up during the install

@2xg

As I never got the network window up during the install, I have not entered the WPA pass phrase.
The network is secured with WPA2

Here there is a shot from my router showing the printer.
As can bee viewed, ther IP has not been found.

Due to security I deleted the MAC addresses on the shot

Nope he means on the printer pal. If you go to the printer network settings you should be able to enter the IP address manually in your case you would enter 192.168.1.X (X being any number that isn't in use by another device) subnet mask would be 255.255.255.0 and the gateway would be the routers IP address
