Welcome to the EE Community.

 

the WPS button is in the middle at the top on the back of the router if you press it for a few seconds it will activate wps.

When I press it, it flashes for about 2 seconds, then stops flashing.

having to press it really hard just to make the icon turn on.

Re: where is the wps button on my bright box 2 router

How can I tell whether or not it is working?

i can’t see any lights and it does not appear to be connecting. I don’t know if this is the router or the extender I am trying to link

Hi @Stroller,

 

Please take a look at Connect using WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) and let me know if it helps you get connected.

 

Thanks

Re: where is the wps button on my bright box 2 router

Hi, when I try to do WPS via PBC it doesn't work with the button and from the 192.168.1.1 menu I get a fault. Sometimes it takes about 2 to 3 minutes while it says "connecting"and then I get the error message.  Unfortunately the device I'm trying to connect, an Epson 245 printer, has no other way than WPS to connect, so manual set up won't work. Below is a screenhost.screenshot from router's WPS/PBC faultscreenshot from router's WPS/PBC fault

Do you really need to use PBC with it?

Re: where is the wps button on my bright box 2 router

Hi,

 

Trying to connect my Epson printer 2600 to the router. I have enabled WPS (which is the only way this printer connects) but even now it won't connect.

 

Please Help.

Hi @Philmo.

 

Are you using an additional device to make this connection between the router and the printer?

 

Is the printer able to be located by the device you're using?

Hi Jon,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

No, the printer Epson 2600 only connects to Wifi with the WPS button. I've enabled it on the router via the software and then the printer should detect it when I press the WiFi button. they both flash for a while - the router for 3 - 5 seconds and the printer for about 5 minutes...then nothing.

 

The printer is now sitting next to the router.

Is there an option to use a wired connection, @Philmo?


If the printer is next to the router, you could connect an ethernet cable, if there's a port on the printer.
