Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure establishment of a wireless home network, created by the Wi-Fi Alliance and officially launched on January 8, 2007.

The goal of the WPS protocol is to simplify the process of configuring security on wireless networks, thus it was first named ‘Wi-Fi Simple Config’. The protocol is meant to allow home users who know little of wireless security and may be intimidated by the available security options to configure Wi-Fi Protected Access, which is supported by all Wi-Fi certified devices.

The standard achieves its goal by putting much emphasis into usability and security, and the concept is implemented through four usage models that enable a user to establish a home network.

Let’s take the D-Link DIR-655 wireless router as an example.

Unconfigured mode:


By default, after setting up your wireless device with WPS and Push Button Configuration (PBC), the only step you need to do is press the WPS button on the side of the router. You would not need to create a wireless network name (SSID) nor a security key.

Configured mode:


You would need to configure the following sections in your router, Wireless Network Settings and Wireless Security Mode. Both sections must be configured including a wireless security key. Save settings and Reboot.


Note: After configuring the DIR-655 Wireless Network Settings you will need to enter in a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that is generated from your wireless adapter in order to establish a proper connection between client and host.
