What is WPS Pin for your Printer?
WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. It is a method to connect devices to a wireless network without the network credentials. The recent printer models let you connect to the computer or router wirelessly with the condition that the network should be protected. Generally, there are two WPS connection methods: WPS Push button and WPS PIN. The encrypted WPS PIN can be located from the printer EWS page or the display panel or on the printer label. Most of the time, WPS PIN is an 8 digit number. Read below to find WPS Pin for your Printer.
