What does WPS button stands for.


WPS=WiFi Protected Setup. This is typically used to connect a Wireless Router to a Wireless Repeater. Both must be WPS capable and using WPS is similar to pairing two Bluetooth devices. One device transmits WPS and another listens (after you initiate a WPS sync). You have to enter a WPS PIN and the devices should connect.

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.

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!

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.

Wps light blinking


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.

Push Button Configuration (PBC)

NOTE: The PBC method is to be used if the wireless client device (device that you are using to connect to the network) has a WPS button (either an actual one or a virtual one).

Step 1:
Click or press the WPS button on the client device.

Step 2:
Click the WPS button on the Linksys device. A pop-up window from the Wireless > Basic Wireless Security tab of the Linksys device will appear. This window will indicate the progress of WPS client configuration.
