Since I saw this reply in community - wow not having this WPS feature is bad enough, but after entering the very long password and it not connecting (even though I checked the password), it drops the password and you have to enter the whole thing again. I'm not sure it even accommodates the lengthy password. Extremely frustrating. No other device in my house has difficulty connecting with my router. Regretting purchase.
These were many of the things I was trying. But finally it hooked up after taking all the other devices off Wi-fi. thanks. Curious as to why I am now more secure with a short password rather than the 50 digit one the router recommended.
WPS is very easily hacked. It should be outlawed and is always disabled and generally not even on option on corporate routers.
I was able to hack into my own WPS enabled router in about 5 minutes using a a simple script I downloaded. I was interested how easy it really was and quickly disabled WPS.
A 6 character password with no WPS is much safer than a 128 character password with WPS enabled.
