N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400 Setup Manual
Configuring Your Wireless Network 26
To access the Internet from any computer connected to your wireless router, launch a browser such
as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. You should see the wireless router’s Internet
LED blink, indicating communication to the ISP.
Using Push 'N' Connect (WPS) to Configure Your Wireless
If your wireless clients support Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), you can use this feature to configure
the router’s SSID and security settings and, at the same time, connect the wireless client securely
and easily to the router. Look for the symbol on your client device.1 WPS automatically
configures the SSID and wireless security settings for the router (if the router is in its default state)
and broadcasts these settings to the wireless client.
If the router has already been configured manually, and either WPS-PSK or WPA2-PSK security
has been enabled, a wireless client can be connected quickly and simply by using the WPS method
of connecting to the wireless network. In this case, the existing wireless settings are broadcast to
the WPS-capable client. (For more information on setting up a mixed network, see the online User
Manual. A link to the User Manual is on the Resource CD.)
The following instructions assume that you are configuring WPS on the router for the first time
and connecting a WPS-capable device such as a wireless computer or wireless adapter.
To connect a device using WPS:
1. Open the networking utility of the device you want to connect to that supports WPS.
2. Push the wireless router’s dome for 5 seconds, then release. The dome lights will start to blink.

NETGEAR’s Push 'N' Connect feature is based on the Wi-Fi Protected Setup
(WPS) standard. All other Wi-Fi-certified and WPS-capable products should be
compatible with NETGEAR products that implement Push 'N' Connect.
If you choose to use WPS, the only security methods supported are WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK. WEP security is not supported by WPS.
