Use WPS to add a device to the WiFi network
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) lets you connect a computer or mobile device to the access
point/router’s network without entering the WiFi network passphrase or key. Instead,
you use a WPS button or enter a PIN to connect.
If you use the push button method, the computer or device that you are trying to connect
must provide either a physical button or a software button. If you use the PIN method,
you must know the PIN of the computer or device that you are trying to connect.
WPS supports WPA and WPA2 WiFi security. If your WiFi network is open (no WiFi
security is set, which is not the default setting), connecting with WPS automatically sets
WPA + WPA2 WiFi security on the WiFi network and generates a random passphrase.
You can view this passphrase (see Set up or change an open or secure WiFi network
on page 62).

For you to use the push button method to connect a WiFi device to the access
point/router’s WiFi network, the WiFi device that you are trying to connect must provide
either a physical button or a software button. You can use the physical button and
