Hi,

If your router does not has WPS button, there is another way to Enable it from Router configuration under wireless settings
If you enable the WPS option from Router, you will have to press the WPS option from printer for automatic setup of printer on wireless network.
If you are not able to locate it then the WPS on your printer is of no use ( to connect to router )
Instead, I believe you have wireless router and you want to setup the printer wireless on network.

This is touchsmart printer and it has a setup button
Press SETUP option
Press WIRELESS option
Check for Wireless Setup Wizard
If it has Wireless setup wizard, select it and continue to search for wireless router and enter your network key if your router is secured with a key.
Run the software disk on pc and choose wireless connection and continue with the rest of the installation screen to complete.

If this option is not available, you will have to setup the printer thru usb cable and make it wireless

Run the disk on your pc
Choose Network Wireless connection
It will prompt you to connect thru USB
follow the instructions and it will ask you to disconnect
Continue with the remaining instructions.

What is the wps button


If you're setting up for wireless connection, it's the button on your router, used to initiate communication with a new device/printer. It's usually marked WPS / RESET. Press it momentarily then press OK button on printer.

On installing the canon pixma printer it says hold down the wps button what is this button where is it located


That would apply only if your modem (router) has a WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) button on it. It is located on the modem (if applicable), not on the printer. Hope this helps.

To adapt N300 Wireless Adapter, I need to press the WPS button on wireless router or gateway. Unable to locate WPS button.


The reason you may wish to press a WPS button is to connect to a WiFi network. The WPS button will be on the router, not on your computer. If no WPS button on the router you will need to enter the WEP/WPA password to connect to the router.

What is a WPS button and where is it on canon pixma


The WPS button would not be on the Canon Pixma printer. It will be on the router (or wireless access point) if your router can search for devices to be connected to the wifi network. (Not all routers do this.) If you add a comment with the make/model of your router, I may be able to tell you where the WPS button is. (Usually it will be on the back of the router but the exact location will vary depending on the model.)

It's much easier to use the standard setup to connect the printer to the router. When you choose that option, you will see a list of identified networks (if they are set up to broadcast). Then you select the network and enter the network password. (This should be set up when you set up the wireless network. Note: a default password is set on most routers; this should be changed during the initial set up. I prefer to use a wired network connection to enable the wireless network and set the password.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your network for additional support.

Hi Robert_fl657,

For any printer to run on the network (wired or wiireless), aside from just a router, you will need a print server. Now, since this printer has wireless capabilities, i am going to assume that you might have a wireless prinet server built in (WPS). If your wireless router does not have that function, i suggest you buy a wireless print server to accomodate the printer that you would want to hook up.

Possible Solution 1: Sync wireless printer with WPS button on wireless router

1. Try and locate the WPS button (if any) on the wireless router.
2. Once located, go to the network options on the wireless printer and select set up by WPS.
3. Once you have selected that option, the printer should be in a seeking mode. Select and hold the WPS Button down on the wireless router.
4. If all goes well, you should have established connectivity with the wireless router.

I hope the above information helped. Please do let me know if there are other queires regarding this. Also, pls remeber to vote for me if you find this solution useful. Thank you.

Regards,

Technomancer
