Where is the WPS button the Arris tm1602?
From a quick look at the specifications, it does not appear that that model offers built in WiFi; thus it would not have a WPS button. In addition, I would caution you against using/enabling WPS on any device, as that protocol has been compromised.
As for solution and recommendations -
Obtain a different model from your service provider with the features you require, or obtain an off the shelf WiFi-capable router from an electronics department. This modem would be able to connect to only a single device without the addition of a router; perhaps that fills your needs but I suspect you will want more than that.
If you choose to obtain a router, you will still likely not have a WPS button - because of the security concerns most if not all of them are off the market. No worries though, many manufacturers offer very simple setup alternatives to WPS - sans the known security risk.
Hope that helps you out!

No driver for my modem
There are no drivers for the arris cable modem unless you are using USB.
If you are using ethernet then it is simply plug and play. You may need to press the reset button on your arris.

What is arris ROHS Batt used for
mines in the trash, they keep going bad the shorting out an causing the modem to go dead.
so bought my own (got 2 for backup)
no battery is bliss.
or did you mean at garage sale you find a ROHS batt laying on table (that I threw out, LOL) and wonder what it is.?
its a battery and most times no good.
or did you mean you have a modem the battery is dead and wont to buy a new one, and ebay is off line today, that it?
most of these are for VOIP, telephone, use with lost of AC power.
I cut all landline here, and that. so no batteries there. here.
but they are only found on ebay. for sure not in TARGET or Bestbuy.
here go to ebay
then in the search box, type your model model number
eg: ARRIS TG1682G
