|Connect a Device with WPS|
Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) allows you to easily connect WPS-supported devices to your Wi-Fi without manually configuring security settings. To access this feature, go to Wi-Fi Settings > Connect a Device With WPS and toggle the switch OFF or ON to disable or enable it.
To add a device, tap on Connect. You have 2 minutes to push the WPS button on your device to connect it to your Wi-Fi. To connect using a PIN or if your device asks for a router WPS PIN, tap Use a PIN. WPS is configured via the Linksys app. There is no external button on the node itself.
