How to use the WPS button on your Belkin router


Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) is a feature that lets you easily connect WPS-supported client devices to your router wirelessly.  This article will give you instructions on how to use the WPS button on your Belkin wireless router.
 
Step 1:
Start WPS Push Button Connection (WPS PBC) on your computer or other Wi-Fi device that you would like to connect wirelessly to the router.

QUICK TIP:  Usually there is a button for this purpose in the software that came with the device, or a physical WPS, PBC, or Security button on the product itself.

Step 2:

Within two (2) minutes, press the WPS button on your router and hold it for two (2) seconds.  The WPS light (small light above WPS button) will blink white while it listens for your Wi-Fi device.  Once a connection is established, the light will turn white and then OFF. 

NOTE:  If a connection is not established, the light will blink amber.  You may repeat the process to try again.  You can repeat this process for each WPS-enabled device you'd like to add to your network.
