This button is the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a method of connecting to a wireless network that requires little configuration. WPS automatically configures a wireless network with a network name (SSID), WPA security key and authentication. WPS is designed to support Wi-Fi-certified 802.11 networks.

Unconfigured mode:
After setting up your wireless device with WPS and Push Button Configuration (PBC), simply press the WPS button on the side of the router. You will not have to create a wireless network name (SSID) or security key.


Note: When you use unconfigured mode, all router settings will be added automatically. There is no need to enable Wireless Network Settings.

However, you will not know the security key, which is required if you add another device that doesn’t use WPS.


Configured mode:
Both Wireless Network Settings and Wireless Security Mode must be configured, including the wireless security key. Click Save Settings and reboot.
