CALL YOUR ISP FIRST.
wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. Some of NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other electronic devices. WPS lets you use a push button or enter a personal identification number (PIN) instead of manually entering a network name (SSID) and password:

  • Push button. The WPS button is either on the product or a clickable button on a wizard or utility screen.

Why is my WPS button blinking?


A blinking WPS on the router usually means it is actively waiting for a device to connect. For security reasons, it is best to set a time limit for how long WPS pairing can remain active in the router, or to turn WPS off completely and connect only with a standard WPA/WPA2 security key.

Once a device is connected via WPS, it is as secure as if it was connected with a standard security key. WPS is only there as a way to make connecting to routers easier with a shorter password that is supposed to only work for short time while WPS pairing is enabled. ALL OTHER TIMES, WPS SHOULD BE TURNED OFF!

2. Select a radio button.
• Push and Connect (recommended). Either click the button or press the WPS
button on the rear panel of the Internet adapter.
• PIN Number. Select the radio button and a PIN displays.
The Internet adapter tries to join the wireless network for 2 minutes if you are using Push
'N' Connect, or 4 minutes if you are using a PIN.
3. Go to the router.
• If you are using Push 'N' Connect, press the router's WPS button.
• If you are using a PIN, log in to the router and type the PIN from your Internet adapter
in its WPS screen.
4. Go back to the computer that is connected to the Internet adapter, and make sure that you
are connected to the wireless network.
• When WPS is running, the WLAN LED blinks, alternating between green and amber.
• If the computer does not to connect with WPS, the WLAN LED is solid red for 5
seconds.
• If the computer does connect using WPS, the WLAN LED is solid green for 5 seconds
Then the WLAN LED returns to indicating a wireless signal.

Wps button


The front of your Actiontec modem has a button and light for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). If that button was pressed or the WPS process was started, that button may light up or blink.

Does my WRT160N have a WPS button and if so, where is it?


The Linksys WRT160N has WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). If you are using WPA-PSK encryption (recommended), then you can easily connect the C4780 to your wireless network using WPS:


1) On the Linksys router, press the WPS button that is top of the case just under the Cisco label. When the LED on the button starts to blink, then the WPS process has started.

There is a green light on on top and after i push the wps button a red light blinks for a while and then stays on any ideas the laptop that has been used with this router is not getting a connection now...


Hello,

WPS means Wi-fi Protected Setup its a kind of wireless security for the router. There are two methods of activating it either by push button(Which you tried) and other is manual for that you can log into the Router setup page using "Http://192.168.2.1" in the Internet explorer and enter the pin code printed under the router. You should click on "Wi-fi protected setup" towards the left side of the page and leave the password field blank and click submit and enter the code and click on "Start" or Apply changes. The reason why it didnt work through the button is probably because your laptop might not be in range or switched off. It has a utility installed on your laptop which recognizes the connection and let it protect using WPS.

Hope it helps. Please feel free to contact us for further assistance or information.
