The black button on the front panel of 585's is to enable / disable the wireless network (WiFi). If the WiFi is enabled with a password setting the led on the front panel is green, if the WiFi is enabled without a password setting (free to all) the led is red. If your desktop is connected with a cable at 585, you can just use the button in order to enable (or disable) the WiFi for the visitors. If you want something more secure you can set the WiFi with a password but in this case you must tell your visitors the password in order to acess the WiFi. It's up on you to decide the way you want to use the WiFi. Of course if you need help to set up the WiFi password post me a reply.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply also.

Thomson 585 v6 we're is the wps button.


Hello:

According to the manual, the Thomson ST585v6 doesn't support WPS. You will have to record the wireless passphrase and enter it manually in the device you're trying to install on the network.

If that doesn't work and you can't get it from your ISP, then you must press the reset button while the power is on.
