A login window opens.

Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
4.
Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings.
The Wireless Settings page displays.
5.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
The Router’s PIN field displays the fixed PIN that you use to configure the router’s WiFi settings from another
platform through WPS.
6.
To disable the PIN, clear the Enable Router’s PIN check box.
By default, the Enable Router’s PIN check box is selected and the router’s PIN is enabled. For enhanced
security, you can disable the router’s PIN by clearing the Enable Router’s PIN check box. However, when you
disable the router’s PIN, WPS is not disabled because you can still use the physical WPS button.
The PIN function might temporarily be disabled automatically if the router detects suspicious
attempts to break into the router’s WiFi settings by using the router’s PIN through WPS.
Note
7.
To allow the WiFi settings to be changed automatically when you use WPS, clear one or both of the Keep
Existing Wireless Settings
 check boxes.
By default, both Keep Existing Wireless Settings check boxes are selected. We recommend that you leave
these check boxes selected. If you clear a check box, the next time a new WiFi client uses WPS to connect to
the router, the router’s associated WiFi settings change to an automatically generated random SSID and
passphrase. For information about viewing this SSID and passphrase, see 
 on page
163.
Clear a Keep Existing Wireless Settings check box only if you want to allow the WPS process to change the
associated SSID and passphrase for WiFi access.
