HT2000W WPS button

It takes several tries before the WPS button works. Could it be a faulty button?

The password is huge. A reliable WPS button is needed.

TIA!

It may be a while before you get a reply with this particular issue as most people don't use WPS to connect their devices.

Nope. I had to use the WPS button once and it worked just fine.


 

Re: HT2000W WPS button

I have not tried using the WPS button to connect any devices (I been using my own Router)   I was never a fan of WPS so never used it in the past either.   Right after my installation I did attempt to press the WPS button (I seen others post that theirs didn't do anything)  when I press it I can feel it clicking

 

 I just attempted to connect my wireless printer using the WPS ...  I had to firmly press and hold the button for about 2 seconds for my printer to connect.  That after going into setting on my printer and going to WPS option to connect to the network.

Not a fan of WPS either, makes people lazy, same as unversal plug and play. I've never used it to set up my network. Good info though just the same.

I had to use it to connect a wifi extender.  There was no other way.

I should rephrase it. What I was trying to saying is it allows people to not learn how to manually setup their home network which IMO everyone should know how to do. Obviously not the case for you. Smiley Happy

Hi lakewoman,

 

This is something we have not heard before, so thanks for bringing it up. When you push on the WPS button, do you feel it depress or click? After pressing it, how long do you wait until trying again? I'll reach out to our engineers to see if they have any information that can help.

 

Thanks,

Amanda

Re: HT2000W WPS button

There is no click. It is very hard to push it in. I push it  and let go and wait to see the WPS light start flickering. If it doesn't, then I push it again. I then try to hold it for a few seconds. I just keep trying until it finally works.

 

I use it for my TVs. I always disconnect the connection when I am done.The only thing that I let automatically connect is my Surface Pro 3.

 

I think that it is a faulty button.
