How do I enter in the PIN for wps router in Windows 7?

Specs: Windows 7
Hi -- I connected to a router using the "Connect to network without setting it up" to avoid entering the router PIN. But now I think this was a mistake because, while I am connected to the router, it says "No Internet Access". I want to go back and try to enter in the PIN again but not sure how to do that. Thanks!

Download the full manual for your router from their web site. Use the factory reset feature and you then can start from scratch. Make sure that you know the default password to log in either from the manual or from a sticker on the bottom of the unit. Make sure that you change the password and write it down. Be ready to name your Wifi and choose a log in key (different from the password for setting it up).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

WPS feature on home-routers is a security hole! Disable it.
Setup the wireless section of the router with WPA2/AES encryption and a strong pass-phrase (pre-shared key).
Any modern router can do this. Most have a guided setup to make this easier for non-tech users.
