The Linksys WRT160N has WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). If you are using WPA-PSK encryption (recommended), then you can easily connect the C4780 to your wireless network using WPS:


1) On the Linksys router, press the WPS button that is top of the case just under the Cisco label. When the LED on the button starts to blink, then the WPS process has started.

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.

Where is wps on Belkin n1 vision?


Before you will be able to use this function, you will have to log into your router and enable WPS push button in the security settings.

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 N1
Vision 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 WP

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.
