Hi,

If your router does not has WPS button, there is another way to Enable it from Router configuration under wireless settings
If you enable the WPS option from Router, you will have to press the WPS option from printer for automatic setup of printer on wireless network.
If you are not able to locate it then the WPS on your printer is of no use ( to connect to router )
Instead, I believe you have wireless router and you want to setup the printer wireless on network.

This is touchsmart printer and it has a setup button
Press SETUP option
Press WIRELESS option
Check for Wireless Setup Wizard
If it has Wireless setup wizard, select it and continue to search for wireless router and enter your network key if your router is secured with a key.
Run the software disk on pc and choose wireless connection and continue with the rest of the installation screen to complete.

If this option is not available, you will have to setup the printer thru usb cable and make it wireless

Run the disk on your pc
Choose Network Wireless connection
It will prompt you to connect thru USB
follow the instructions and it will ask you to disconnect
Continue with the remaining instructions.

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.

What is wps pin


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 a button on the product or a an option on the wizard or utility screen.

Can't find the PIN of this product


Good morning. There is no PIN to find on the router. You get the PIN from the Wireless client and enter into the router setup screen.
The wireless router supports two types of WPS, the WPS via Push Button and WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to start the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can simply push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the 'Start to Process' button in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN code, you have to know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to WPS mode, then fill-in the PIN code of the wireless client through the web configuration interface of the wireless router.

Here is the link for the Owners Manual for your router..

Hp printer says to press the WPS button on the router. What's that?


  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections.
  • WPS lets you use push buttons or PINS instead of entering a network name (SSID) and wireless security by hand.
  • Push button: The WPS button is either on the product or a clickable button on a wizard or utility screen.
  • Personal Identification Number (PIN): The PIN is either on a product label or can be viewed on a wizard or utility screen. The PIN is entered for either the router or access point, or for the wireless device that wants to join the network.

Trying to connect to sony blu-ray wireless where


Certain routers will not have a wps button on it...
You can go for the next options in your bluray...
You will have options to enter network key...(this is wireless network password)
Or you can configure using PIN number...(an 8 digit number printed at the bottom of wireless router)

But if u configured using wps or pin number, then the wireless settings on your router will get sync with bluray player... All your other wireless devices like laptops and iphones and gaming system will lose their connectivity to the wireless router...
so it is advisable to type the security password of your router in bluray player...

How do i set up my printer to print wirless after setting up the wireless wizard with my router


Presumably, the wizard helped you choose an SSID and a password.

On the controls on the HP printer, enter the SSID and the password,
and then the HP will try to connect to the wireless interface on the router.

I have two laptops and want to set up a wireless network. I have the wireless set up but it isn't secure. When I go in to the Homegroups page it asks me for a 4 or 8 digit PIN number found on the router....


If you don't know it, you won't be able to automate your Wifi Protected Setup (WPS). The pin is a very specific way to prevent yourself from always having to remember codes, keys, passphrases, etc. Without it, its like saying that you want to to connect to Bank of America, and that it's just okay because you want it to happen.

The following is taken from the ESR-9753 manual:



- Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)

WPS is the simplest way to establish a connection between the wireless clients
and the wireless router. You don’t have to select the encryption mode and fill in a
long encryption passphrase every time when you try to setup a wireless
connection. You only need to press a button on both wireless client and wireless
router, and the WPS will do the rest for you.

The wireless router supports two types of WPS: WPS via Push Button and
WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a
specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to start
the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can simply
push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the ‘Start to Process’ button
in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN code, you have to
know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to WPS mode, then fill-in
the PIN code of the wireless client through the web configuration interface of the
wireless router.

Im trying to set security on belkin n router


Hi...if your router has WPS capability, such as a special button to set up wireless security, then to use it your client computer/device must also be WPS enabled.

If it is, there are usually two options to configure WPS security: the push button method, or the PIN number. The push button method usually requires that you press the WPS button on the router, then within a set time, press the equivalent button on the computer (eg laptop, or whatever device it is). The PIN number method requires a PIN to be entered into the client computer. The PIN can sometimes be found on a sticker on the router.

Your manual should help with the details, but see this page for some more info.

If you don't have a WPS enabled computer or don't want to use it, you can set up security manually. Please come back to Fixya if you'd like help with this.
