Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
The button for the WPS seems to get stuck and I can't set up an android tablet without it. I have tried reseting it. The light will not come on anymore.
You have to put in the WiFi password manually on your Android device.

Before diagnosing it to be a hardware failure, I would suggest you to upgrade the firmware on the router. Follow the below steps to upgrade firmware on the router:
A. Open the router page using the following way:
1. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
2. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
3. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
4. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
B. Visit the following link to download the latest firmware.
C. Please follow the steps to upload the firmware of the router:
1. Open the router page using the steps mentioned above.
2. Under Maintenance, click router Upgrade.
3. Click Browse and locate the upgrade file.
4. Click Upload.
5. Wait for the router to reboot.
6. Click on 'Logout' (at the bottom of the list) from left menu.
7. Reset and reconfigure the router.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the assistance with identifying my problem with my router. Very quick responses, clear instructions. Very helful."
Yes you can. The button is in the software. goto http://192.168.1.254 or whatever the URL for the modem. Login. Goto Home-->Wireless--> Push WPS Button Remotely and push the button. I don't know if you need to have the repeater nearby when you do this. I had mine sitting right next to my router.

WPS stand for Wi-Fi Protected Set-up . According yo Wikipedia "The goal of the WPS protocol is to simplify the process of configuring security on wireless network, If your 2Wire router is equiped with that function it would be the BIG button on the bottom front of your router Look at this advertisement from 2Wire http://2wire.com/movies/pages/112.swf

Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->> http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html
Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.
