If an access point or router in the wireless network that you are trying to connect to supports WPS, you can use WPS to set up the wireless settings of your wireless Netgear WG111v3 Adapter and connect securely to the access point or router.

Note: The NETGEAR 54 Mbps Wireless USB2.0 Adapter WG111 only supports WPS on Windows 2000, XP, XP x64 and Vista and win7 (32/64 bits).

An access point or router that supports WPS has a WPS symbol. Some NETGEAR products include NETGEAR’s Push ‘N’ Connect feature. This feature is based on the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) standard (for more information, see http://www.wi-fi.org). WPS automatically configures the network name (SSID) and wireless security for the access point or router and the wireless adapter. Note that WPS is not a new security feature—it makes existing security features easier to configure.

There are two methods to connect using WPS:

•Push Button Configuration (PBC). To enable WPS, press a push button or push dome on the access point or router, or click an onscreen button in the software. This is a fairly new technology, so not all access points and routers provide a PBC.

•PIN entry. To enable WPS, use the NETGEAR Smart Wizard to generate a Personal Identification number (PIN) that is associated with the access point or router.
