I'm sorry about the issue. What is the make / model of your Internet modem/router device?
Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10, or mac computer?

When the printer says to press the WPS button, can you press the red Stop button, then use the Standard Setup option in order to select / connect to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name?
