Connecting to wifi requires that wifi is enabled on the computer in question; that you can see the wifi router you wish to connect to; that you know the access-key/password (security key) for that router.

Once you have fulfilled those conditions you simply search for, and then select (click on) the router in question (in the list of displayed routers in your locale); enter the key, and if the router security proper allows you in - you're in…

I'm not that stupid. My Wi-Fi is enabled and I want to connect via WPS and NOT WEP, WPA or WPA2 in Windows 7.

mmm… No-one is suggesting you're "that stupid"… However your very scant initial information could easily imply that you don't know how to connect to wifi, or if it is actually enabled/working etc..

As for WPS-pin itself. Presumably you have researched it all well enough, and understand it enough, to realise the vulnerabilities of that approach?

is just one of many such caveats - out there in www-land


may assist…?

Hi trvlr,
Sorry for the late reply. May I know that this link you given me is it to connect via WPS Pin even though the network had set up already?

"I want to connect via WPS and NOT WEP, WPA or WPA2"

Blue Pooh you clearly don't understand what WPS is. WPS stands for wireless protected setup. It is a way of establishing an encrypted connection using wpa/wpa2, as setup on your wifi router,

You can only use WPS if the wifi adapter SUPPORTS it. If so there will be a wps button on the device or via its software utility. Depending you may also have the ability to setup the connection manually using the pin otherwise you have to do it the old fashioned way by knowing the actual wifi encryption passphrase.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

As Wanderer advises WPS is only available if the wifi adapter supports it...

Does your wifi support WPS?

If you have WPS enabled I would disable it and connect the old fashioned way with a complex pass phrase.

WPS is a security risk as it reduces a complex pass phrase down to a four digit pin number that can soon be cracked.
