Connect using the PIN method

When setting up a wireless connection, some wireless software will prompt you to enter the router's PIN to set up a secure wireless connection.

You'll find the PIN in the WiFi Protected Settings.

If you find you're unable to connect using WPS set up, don't worry. Simply connect by entering the router's wireless password instead.
