Google the router specs or you should generally have a button on the front or top of the router with a icon of an antenna or it will say WPS.

What is WPS button?


The WPS is abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. This function should you help to set up strong wireless network password (so called "shared secret") by very easy way.
For most of users is very hard to create, remember and assign complex long password to Wi-Fi router and client devices e.g. smart phones, laptops, printers.
Short and simple (non-complex) password is weak and can be broken by hackers. You can set strong password using WPS buttons. No device management access is required.

Procedure description
Press WPS button on both devices you wish connect each other. (Router, wireless printer...)Wait until password is set automatically and devices are connected.There exists second procedure in WPS standard. It is similar to described one, but PIN number is required in addition.

Security warning!!!
Enabled WPS function is very high security risk. The WPS sets strong password, but offers another security hole to hackers. The WPS standard is affected by well known vulnerability and therefore is insecure. It is recommended to DISABLE WPS ON ALL DEVICES. Go to device setup and disable the WPS completely.

Can a WiFi repeater with WPS connect to a Wireless router without WPS ? I can't seem to get them to connect to each other via WiFi


WPS only works with client Wi-Fi devices that have a WPS button.
Your router does not have it, so it does not work.

How do I know if my router (ATT 138NG) is WPS or non-WPS


Check the wireless settings for WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryption (passphrase) settings. If these are not available then it is not a secure wireless router.

Can't find the PIN of this product


Good morning. There is no PIN to find on the router. You get the PIN from the Wireless client and enter into the router setup screen.
The wireless router supports two types of WPS, the WPS via Push Button and WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to start the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can simply push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the 'Start to Process' button in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN code, you have to know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to WPS mode, then fill-in the PIN code of the wireless client through the web configuration interface of the wireless router.

Here is the link for the Owners Manual for your router..

I have two laptops and want to set up a wireless network. I have the wireless set up but it isn't secure. When I go in to the Homegroups page it asks me for a 4 or 8 digit PIN number found on the router....


If you don't know it, you won't be able to automate your Wifi Protected Setup (WPS). The pin is a very specific way to prevent yourself from always having to remember codes, keys, passphrases, etc. Without it, its like saying that you want to to connect to Bank of America, and that it's just okay because you want it to happen.

The following is taken from the ESR-9753 manual:



- Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)

WPS is the simplest way to establish a connection between the wireless clients
and the wireless router. You don’t have to select the encryption mode and fill in a
long encryption passphrase every time when you try to setup a wireless
connection. You only need to press a button on both wireless client and wireless
router, and the WPS will do the rest for you.

The wireless router supports two types of WPS: WPS via Push Button and
WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a
specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to start
the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can simply
push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the ‘Start to Process’ button
in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN code, you have to
know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to WPS mode, then fill-in
the PIN code of the wireless client through the web configuration interface of the
wireless router.
