I am looking to...

I am looking to replace an old router. however, i do not want one with a wps button. can you recommend one?

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your router?

I currently have a netgear

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

I have just been looking on the internet, but every router i find to purchase has a wps button. i am wanting to disable the wireless admin feature and am not wanting a wps button. i didn't think this would be such a difficult task.
