Setup Using the WPS Button (Easy Setup)

You can set up the wireless LAN simply by pressing the WPS button on the GW-USMicroN.

* WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a standard for easy setup of wireless LAN developed by "Wi-Fi Alliance," which is an industry group for wireless LAN. You can use this function to easily set up and encrypt your wireless LAN in combination with a wireless LAN broadband router (master unit) supporting WPS.


To set up the wireless LAN using the WPS function, both the router (master unit) and client (slave unit) must support WPS.



The setup method using the WPS-compatible wireless broadband router "MZK-W300NH" by PLANEX COMMUNICATIONS is described below.
* The screen shots show applicable screens when they were still under development. Accordingly, the actual screens and procedures may be different.
