Using WPS to set up your devices
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is an easy way to automatically connect your WPS enabled devices to your wireless network without having to type in any passwords. Pressing the WPS button on your router and then on your device will cause the pair to connect without any further intervention.
This is a useful way of connecting multiple devices in a home quickly but carries many security risks. Attackers can hack into a WPS enabled router in a matter of hours, leaving your network highly vulnerable. As such, all of our routers have the WPS button disabled by default. You can connect to your home devices without the WPS by entering your SSID (Network name) and Password.
Please contact us if you require the WPS button to be enabled and we will amend your router settings.
