Using Push ��N�� Connect (WPS) to Configure Your Wireless
If your wireless clients support Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), you can use this feature to configure the router��s SSID and security settings and, at the same time, connect the wireless client securely and easily to the router. 1 WPS automatically configures the SSID and wireless security settings for the router (if the router is in its default state) and broadcasts these settings to the wireless client.

If the router has already been configured manually, and either WPS-PSK or WPA2-PSK security has been enabled, a wireless client can be connected quickly and simply by using the WPS method of connecting to the wireless network. In this case, the existing wireless settings are broadcast to the WPS-capable client. These instructions assume that you are configuring WPS on the router for the first time and connecting a WPS-capable device. For a list of other Wi-Fi-certified products available from NETGEAR, go to http://www.wi-fi.org.
To set up basic wireless connectivity:
1. Log in to the wireless modem router
at its default address of On the router main menu.
2. On the router main menu, select
Add a WPS Client (computers that will connect wirelessly to the router are clients). The Add WPS Client wizard screen displays. Click Next.
NeTGeAr��s Push ��N�� Connect feature is based on the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) standard. All other Wi-Fi-certified and WPS-capable products should be compatible with NETGEAR products that implement Push ��N�� Connect.
If you choose to use WPS, the only security methods supported are WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. WEP security is not supported by WPS. You can also enter either of these addresses to connect to your wireless router: http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com.

Using either method, the client wireless device will attempt to detect the WPS signal from the router and establish a wireless connection in the time allotted. • If no connection is detected, then no SSID or security settings are configured on the router. • If a connection is established, the router WPS screen displays a message confirming that the wireless client was successfully added to the wireless network. (The router has generated an SSID, implemented WPA/WPA2 wireless security (including a PSK security password) on the router and has sent this configuration to the wireless client.)
