Can't connect via WPS

If you have trouble connecting your wireless client via WPS, try one of the following:

  • the WPS session only lasts 2 minutes, make sure to press the WPS button on both devices within this time slot
  • wait until the WPS LEDs of the Technicolor TG589 router and other devices are off and then try again
  • move the devices closer to each other
  • make sure that WPS is enabled on the Technicolor TG589 router. Follow these steps:
    1. Browse to the Technicolor TG589 router web interface.
    2. Click Wireless. The Wireless page appears.
    3. On the left menu, select the access point to which you want to connect using WPS.
    4. In the upper-right corner, click show advanced.
    5. Under Access Point, make sure that:
    6. - Broadcast SSID is switched to ON
      - WPS is switched to ON
      - Security mode is not WEP
    7. If you made changes, select Save.

If the problem persists, configure your wireless client manually.
