This model of router doesn't have a WPS button. It as a Secure Easy Setup button on the front, which looks like THIS.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I pressed the button as called for in the directions. After the printer attempted to connect to the access point I get an error message. "Time out error, Check the access point. See the access point manual." I'll see if I can find the Linksys manual.
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.
I'm not sure. Let me opt out and see if someone else knows whats up.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Thanks. I don't have the manual.

Hello,

 

Welcome to Justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am glad to assist you.

 

In order to connect the printer to the wireless network, you have to know the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP Passphrase (password).

 

Insert the printer driver disc and start installation using the disc. You will get an option says Wireless Connection. Be sure to select Wireless Connection on the Connection Method Selection screen. Follow the on screen instructions.

 

If you have any questions, please let me know. If the issue resolved or the response was helpful, please click ACCEPT, so that I can get paid for my time and effort.

 

Thank you.
