Hello @ms7979 the 4GEE home router does not come with WPS functionality I am sorry, you would need to connect the printer manually using the SSID/password as normal. 🙂

@WilliamJ: No, read the reply to the OP in https://community.ee.co.uk/t5/Broadband-home-phone/Home-Router-Huawei-E5180/m-p/548765/highlight/tru... .

 

You have alighted on an old thread about a previous EE offering of an MBB router, not to be confused with the current 4GEE Home Router , which also does not do WPS.
