Hi, I got the new Home Internet Cylinder router.  Pretty simple setup but the speeds are good and the price is right.  I have a few devices I have always used WPS to connect.  Some extenders and some indoor cameras.  Can’t figure out how to do it now.  I do not see a WPS button.

Am I missing something?  The interface is so simple but maybe it will get better with time.

Thanks

In addition to WPS, most extenders have a second option for connecting through a web interface. Check your extender model start-up instructions booklet or Google for the manufacturer extender “support” page or for a YouTube video.

Thanks much for your help. I think the device I have is so simple and rudimentary that I am not able to do that.  It’s pretty old.  I will explore and do some searching by model number.

It’s the cameras that are driving me nuts.  Not sure what to do about that.  Even without a physical button, most routers will let you press something on the router interface to put it in WPS mode.

Giving this some time to see what unfolds.

Take care.
