Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy
and secure wireless network set up and connections. NETGEAR's products
use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must
support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically
set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for
wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and
other consumer electronics devices.
WPS lets you use push buttons or PINS instead of entering a network name (SSID) and wireless security by hand.
