Wi-Fi Protected Setup Method
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easily adding computers and other devices to a home network while
maintaining security. To use WPS (Push 'N' Connect), make sure that all WiFi devices to be connected to the network
are Wi-Fi certified and support WPS. During the connection process, the client gets the security settings from the
router so that every device in the network supports the same security settings.
To use WPS to connect a device to the WiFi network of the router:
1.
Make sure that the router is receiving power (its Power LED is lit).
2.
Check the WPS instructions for your computer or WiFi device.
3.
Press the WPS button of the router for three seconds.
4.
Within two minutes, press the WPS button on your WiFi device, or follow the WPS instructions that came with
the device.
The WPS process automatically sets up the device with the network password and connects the device to the
WiFi network of the router.
