Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, not all Wireless AccessPoint supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). You need to determine if your AP has provisions for WPS, otherwise if the AP is WEP/WPA enabled, it would not work.

You might be better off disabling WEP/WPA and WPS. Some disadvantages of WPS are:

  • It does not support “Ad-Hoc” mode or network where wireless devices are communicated directly to each other without an access point.
  • All of the Wi-Fi devices on the network must be WPS certified or WPS-compatible, otherwise you will not be able to take advantage of the ease of securing the network.
  • Difficult to add a non-WPS client device to the network because of the long sequences of hexadecimal characters generated by the WPS technology.
  • This technology is fairly new, so not every vendor will support the WPS technology.
Alternate methods of activating WPS on compatible Wireless APs are discussed here.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Just log into your router (IP 192.168.?.?) then go to wireless setup and then to add device and there you will see where it will recognize your A7 and add it to the WPS network. after which it will auto sync with router once you try to access the web.

Go to start button run and type cmd in the box
then type ipconfig

locate your default gateway ip address and use this address in your browser
you should be able to login to your router from here

good luck and keep asking if you need help.

No spark in the spark plug


You will have to prove out the wiring to make sure there are no shorts, opens, or poor connections. If there are no wiring problems, then the EEC may be at fault. The crank sensor produces an AC voltage signal that may be getting corrupted by the time it reaches the ignition module, due to bad wiring. Make sure to verify whether the ignition module is receiving a clean strong signal by using an oscilloscope or at least measure the signal with an AC voltmeter at the ICM connector while cranking the engine. The voltage will vary with speed, you are looking for a steady signal that doesn't drop out or become erratic. You can run new wires, and make sure they are not connected to possibly shorted sections of the old wiring, by cutting the old wires off at the connectors and connecting new wires to the cut ends. Or replace the connectors and wiring if you suspect that the connections are bad. Inspect carefully for damaged terminals that won't make a good tight connection with their mating pins when connected.

Here is a basic diagram of the entire system, it is common to all the distributorless units even though this one shows a 6-pack coil.

First I sugest to check to see if the check engine light comes on key on engine off. Chekc the EEC Power relay in the fuse box switch with another relay (underhood fuse box, called PCM power relay). Check ground connectiosn.

Will not start


If your starter makes click click click when trying to start, probably the starter is ok. You should use a socket in the crankshaft bolt to turn the engine, be sure that it moves freely. If it does, test your starter by connecting a piece of wire from the positive of you battery to signal wire on the starter (the small one), for this you have to be very careful. Replace any of them that is broken: engine or starter.
