What is the purpose of the WPS button on the NETGEAR N600, Model WNDR3400v2?


That is for pairing printers and other router based equipment. Instead of typing the key code.

Windows problems connecting to WPS enabled routers


You may come across connection problems when routers have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) enabled and clients do not support it.

In Windows XP, Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) may mistake a WPS enabled router for a WPA-Radius protected one and warn you that there is no certificate to connect to it:

To work around this problem, you can either disable 802.1x authentication on the client or disable WPS on the router's.

802.1x on the client can be disabled in the properties of the wireless network. On the Authentication tab, untick the 802.1x Authentication option. Make sure that the correct encryption type is selected on the Association tab and that the WPA Pre-Shared Key or the WEP key is entered.

On Windows Vista things may even be worse. When you try to connect to a WPS enabled network, Vista may prompt you for a user name, password and domain name as if PEAP authentication were used. When you manually create the network profile specifying WPA2-PSK, AES and the Pre-shared Key, Vista may refuse to connect stating that the network profile does not match the actual configuration. The only work-around in this case is to disable WPS on the router.

To disable WPS on the router, go to the Wi-Fi Protected Setup.

At the top of the page, just set WPS to disabled and apply changes. You may need to delete the profile for the network on the client card before it can connect to the router.

Why did the router ID change when I linked it via the Wps button to the DSTV wifi gadget ?


Here's and excerpt from the Netgear WNR2000 user manual explaining that this is normal behavior for Netgear routers that support WPS..:
  • Keep Existing Wireless Settings. This check box is automatically selected after WPS is enabled to prevent unwanted settings changes, and is also selected if you have already specified wireless security settings or your SSID without using WPS. When this check box is not selected, adding a new wireless client using the push button or the Add WPS Client screen (see "Push Button Configuration" on page 2-14) changes the router's SSID and security passphrase. You might need to clear it if you are using certain registrars, such as for a Windows Vista PC, to configure the router through WPS.
Even if your router is not a WNR2000, it is likely that the configuration interface pretty much the same so you might be helped by looking at Chapter 2 page 17 in the WNR2000 manual here..:
Or else, go to Netgear support (NETGEAR Support Welcome), select Wi-Fi routers and download/display the user manual pdf and search it for "disable router's pin" or "keep existing wireless settings" and verify/change the setting so the router doesn't make changes when you use the WPS button.

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.

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!

Where is the wps button on a N 1 Belkin route?


Using Wi-Fi Protected Setup
WPS uses WPA2 (described below) for encryption. It does not
provide additional security, but rather, standardizes the method for
securing your wireless network. You may use either the Push Button
Configuration (PBC) method or PIN method to allow a device access to your wireless network. Conceptually, the two methods work as follows:
PBC: Push and hold the WPS button located on the back of your
Router for three seconds. Then initiate the WPS procedure on the client device within two minutes. Refer to your client's documentation on this procedure. Pushing the PBC button will automatically enable WPS. The client has now been securely added to your wireless network.
PIN: The client device has a PIN number (either four or eight digits)
that is associated with WPS. Enable WPS through the GUI shown
below. Enter the client's PIN into the Router's internal registrar
(accessed through this GUI). The client will be automatically enrolled
into your wireless network within two minutes.

WLAN/WPS won't stop flashing orange


on netgear router it said if improper wps code was entered 4 times it would cause wps to blink slowly and disable it. It said the router had to be reset to factory, then wps would start working again. when you press wps and do autosetup on device it gives out this key and device will auotlink. you can only wps link with one router or you will cause error.

WPS light not working after pressing WPS button


Both sides of the connection need to be set up for WPS. A pin has to be set up.
I recommend using WEP until you figure out WPS.

Does a Level1 WPS-9122 print server work with Windows 7?


Yes, You can purchase WPS-9122 and use on Windows 7. Though the seach utility comes with WPS-9122 may be out of date, in another word it might not be compatible with Windows 7 since WPS-9122 came out long before WIndows 7.

For your reference, most of the networking equipments are OS independent. For example, printer server, router, switch. The version or type of OS does not effect it;s usage.
