Enabling Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) for Wireless-N ADSL2 gateway

Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) is one of the wireless security features of your Linksys Wireless-N ADSL and X Series gateway.  It automatically searches and establishes a connection with your Wi-Fi Protected Setup-supported wireless device by pressing the WPS button.  The WPS LED is continuously lit when a Wi-Fi Protected Setup connection is successfully established.  However, it blinks slowly while Wi-Fi Protected Setup is setting up a connection, and blinks rapidly in amber if an error occurs.  The LED goes OFF when Wi-Fi Protected Setup is idle.

NOTE:  Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) can only be enabled if your client device is also WPS-compatible.

Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page.  For instructions, click here.

Step 3:
Select the radio button for Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS).

NOTE:  In case you are connecting client devices that do not support the Wi-Fi Protected Setup feature, enter the wireless security settings of the gateway manually instead.

Step 4:
Click Save Settings.
