Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Method
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard that lets you easily join a secure wireless network
with WPA or WPA2 wireless security. The wireless modem router automatically sets security
for each computer or device that uses WPS to join the wireless network. To use WPS, make
sure that your wireless devices are Wi-Fi certified and support WPS. NETGEAR products
that use WPS call it Push 'N' Connect.1
Note: If the SSID changes each time you add a WPS client, the Keep
Existing Wireless Settings check box on the Advanced Wireless
Settings screen has been cleared. See Configure WPS Settings on
page 86 for more information about this setting.
You can use a WPS button or the wireless modem router interface method to add wireless
computers and devices to your wireless network.
WPS Button Method
To add clients using the WPS button:
1. Press the WPS button on the wireless modem router front panel.
2. Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your wireless computer or device, or follow the
WPS instructions that came with the computer. The device is now connected to your
wireless modem router.
3. Repeat steps 1–2 to add other WPS wireless computers or devices.
