5G -How to do a push-button wifi join?

Where is the WPS push-button join feature for the 5G Home Internet gateway? There is no button on the body of the gateway and I’ve looked on the gateway’s screen, in the phone app and in the web browser interface. I don’t see any hint of an “accept join request” action. 

My printer is having difficulty joining the wifi network so I’m using it via ethernet cable, meaning I can’t move the gateway out of the same room. It would also be so much easier to join all my other devices that don’t have a keypad to enter the password like my bathroom scale, Filimin, etc. Every device has a separate management web portal. Annoying.

Currently, WPS isn’t an option, as you’ve discovered. If possible, are you able to perform an advanced setup on the printer to manually connect to the gateway? I have a printer that allows me to do a manual connection where I can enter the password once I’ve selected the gateway’s WiFi name after it searched and found available networks to connect to. My printer is an HP OfficeJet Pro 8710.
