I’m trying to link my wireless laptop to my dell computer.

Customer Question
I’m trying to link...

I’m trying to link my wireless laptop to my dell computer. The computer is linked into WiFi. I’m successfully (so far), linked my hp printer via WiFi which is now asking me for WiFi protected Setup-“if router supports WPS,after press Start, push WPS button on the router for 3 sec. Wireless light on the device lights up after device connect to network

Technician's Assistant: What Dell model do you have?

Question: where is the WPS button on the router

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Dell printer?

Pearl, I don’t know how long my boyfriends had this particular printer, however, after attempting to connect to printer, I have been the one to discover, I honestly don’t think he’s ever set it up manually

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes. There’s only one button on the router. Is THAT the WPS button?

No, “Push WPS button on router for 3 sec” it keeps timing out. Evidentially that’s not it! Right?
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 23 days ago

Correct, so when you install the printer, choose instead to manually connect and enter in a password.

Let me know how you go please
