- Setting up the Linksys media connector using Wi-Fi Protected Setup™
You can set up your Linksys Wireless-AC Wi-Fi 5GHz Universal Media Connector Bridge with 4-Port Switch using the device’s Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) feature, making it easier for you to configure your wireless network. This article will give you instructions on how to set up the media connector with your Linksys Wireless-N Router.
To do this, you need to perform two (2) steps:
NOTE: The Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ configures one (1) device at a time. It is important that the router is set to WPA2 security mode to avoid devices getting disconnected during the WPS connection configuration.
Locate and press the WPS button on your router. Your router’s WPS button is located either on the front or back panel.
NOTE: Alternatively, you can access your router’s web-based setup page and configure WPS from there by clicking on the same WPS button. To access your router’s web-based setup page, click here for instructions. If you’re using a Mac® computer, click here.
Use this method if your client device has a WPS Personal Identification Number (PIN).
NOTE: This method assumes that you already have your client device’s PIN. If you’re not sure where to acquire your client device’s WPS PIN, refer to its product documentation.
Access your router’s web-based setup page. To learn how, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac® computer to access the router’s web-based setup page, click here.
Click on the Wireless tab, then select the Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ radio button.
Enter your client device’s PIN in the blank field, and then click the Register button.
Access the media connector’s web-based setup page. To learn how, click here.
Click on the Wireless tab.
Two (2) minutes after enabling the router’s WPS, select the Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ radio button.
When the media connector is configured, click .
The Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ screen will display the Link Status, Network Name (SSID), and Security method.
