Machine does not appear to have WPS button, where is it.
Some wireless routers will have a WPS button. Printers do not have one. As you set up a printer to connect to your wireless network, you press the WPS button on the router when prompted by the setup program.
If your router has a WPS button, it will usually be on the back of the router. However, on the Netgeat WNR3500-100NAS, the button is on the bottom front of the router. If your router doesn't have a WPS button, log into the router's administrator page. (In your browser, type in http:// + the I.P. address of your router. (It will often be 192.168.1.1 .) Enter the administrator name and password. (admin is the common administrator account name). Then go to the Wi-fi page, there will be a way to start the WPS signal. (This assumes you are using a security protocol that is compatible with the WPS setting. WPA/WPA2 are compatible; WEP isn't (if I recall correctly).) Most router manufacturers have a default administrator password. I strongly recommend changing from the default passwords; they are available in any manual.
The alternative is to type in the name of your wireless network and its security password during the printer setup.
Please add a comment with your specific router make and model. I will be glad to tell you where on the unit a WPS button is, if one is present. I can also give you information on the default administrator account and password.
