I just installed Windows...

I just installed Windows 10, and now I have no WiFi without connecting an ethernet cable between the router and computer. When I try to connect to NetGear (n600,WNDR3400v2) I get a message that says I need a pin number. How do i get a pin number?

Technician's Assistant: How much experience do you have with this particular NETGEAR router?

I have had it about 4-5 years.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

What do you mean?

Technician's Assistant: What confuses you?

You, what I need is a pin number.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

None

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your request. It sounds like you are running WPS on your netgear router. You can find the router's pin by logging into the router with a device that is already connected to it and going to Advanced > advanced setup >wireless settings. Do you have another device connected to the wifi currently?
