that only works on certain types of routers. you have to log into the router and under wifi there will be a section for pin type connectionThere are 3 ways to connect a printer.the oldest way is to know the wps passkey that you set up in the router. you would then have to put that in the printer.the second and still older way is to have the router generate a temporary easier to enter pin number which you put in the printer.the most modern way is where the router has a button on the router exterior. push and hold that for a few seconds and it will start to blinkyou then have two minutes to tell the printer to connect and it will do so automatically you need to look at the printer menu under wifi setup and see which methods it will use and then see which methods the router will use. the pin method is the most difficult on the router end. the passkey the most difficult on the printer end. the push button the easiest but not all printers or routers use it.
