WPS is a simple, secure way to connect your devices to the internet. It's also easy to set up and use, which makes it an ideal option for connecting your devices. We'll walk you through the steps of setting up WPS on your router and wireless adapter so that you can get your device connected to the internet in no time flat!
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard that was developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance as an alternative to the security PIN method of entering a password on a device. The PIN method requires the user to enter the same password into both their router and any new device they wish to connect. WPS enables you to connect multiple devices to your wireless network without entering encryption keys. It's often used on routers or access points, but can also be found on some phones, computers, and other hardware.
Ease of use: The main advantage of WPS is its simplicity. It doesn't require any special equipment or software to connect two devices together; you simply need to know how to press a button on each device. This makes it ideal for connecting laptops, tablets and other types of mobile devices with your home network.
Security: WPS also provides security by preventing unauthorized access to your network when an intruder tries to guess your password over time through brute force attacks or dictionary attacks. The password must be at least eight characters long and include both uppercase and lowercase letters along with numbers and special characters such as asterisks or dollar signs ($).
A wireless router that supports WPS
To use WPS, you must first set up your router to support the WPS protocol. If you have an older router, it may not support WPS. If this is the case, you will need to connect your router to your computer using an Ethernet cable and configure it manually. Once your router is ready for WPS, you can begin connecting devices that support WPS.

Press and hold the WPS button on your router until it blinks quickly. This means that your router is in AP mode. If it doesn't blink, then repeat the step.
On the TV, press Menu and select Network setup. Then select WPS and follow the instructions on screen.
When prompted, press the WPS button on your router again. This should start the connection process.
If the TV is successfully connected, a message will appear on-screen saying “Wi-Fi connection successful”. If this doesn't happen, then repeat the steps above and try again.
If the WPS connection fails, follow these troubleshooting steps and then try connecting again:
Make sure that the router's WPS feature is enabled.
Move the router closer to your device and make sure your wireless router has a solid internet connection. If it does, then check that the TV is connected to a network with an internet connection. This means that you should see the familiar Wi-Fi icon at the bottom of your screen when on Wifi. If it doesn't appear, then check your settings and make sure that both devices are set up properly.
If still nothing happens (or if you get an error message), try restarting both devices by unplugging them for about 30 seconds and plugging them back in again. If necessary, do this several times until everything works properly again!
