Manage the WPS Settings
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) lets you join the WiFi network without typing the WiFi password. You can
change the WPS default settings.
To manage WPS settings:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the modem router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are
The BASIC Home page displays.
4. Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings.
The Wireless Settings page displays.
5. Scroll down to thethe WPS Settings section of the page.
The Router’s PIN field displays the fixed PIN that you use to configure the modem router’s WiFi settings
from another platform through WPS.
6. To disable the PIN, select the Disable Router’s PIN check box.
By default, the Disable Router’s PIN check box is cleared and the modem router’s PIN is enabled. For
enhanced security, you can disable the modem router’s PIN by selecting the Disable Router’s PIN
check box. However, when you disable the modem router’s PIN, WPS is not disabled because you can
still use the physical WPS button.
The PIN function might temporarily be disabled automatically if the modem router
detects suspicious attempts to break into the modem router’s WiFi settings by using
the router’s PIN through WPS.
7. To allow the WiFi settings to be changed automatically when you use WPS, clear one or both of the
Keep Existing Wireless Settings check boxes.
By default, both Keep Existing Wireless Settings check boxes are selected. We recommend that you
leave these check boxes selected. If you clear a check box, the next time a new WiFi client uses WPS
to connect to the modem router, the modem router's associated WiFi settings change to an automatically
generated random SSID and passphrase. For information about viewing this SSID and passphrase,
see View or Change the Basic WiFi Settings on page 73. Clear a Keep Existing Wireless Settings
check box only if you want to allow the WPS process to change the associated SSID and passphrase
for WiFi access.
