1. Compatible Router

You will need a compatible WPA2-AES capable router with WPS to use the Wi-Fi Control / Wi-Fi Adaptor MAC-559IF-E. Most WPS capable routers will be compatible with the MAC-559IF-E. Every router has its own way of enabling WPS, and some routers have it disabled by default. Due to the large number of routers available, knowing how to activate WPS on your router is not something we or our installers are able to assist with, but is generally easily available in your router instruction manual. If your router is not compatible, it is possible to resolve this by plugging in an additional compatible router to your existing router.

Take note
  • For instruction about how to enable WPS on your wireless router please refer to the routerís user manual as this process may differ for each router.
  • Be careful when pressing the WPS button because if you hold the WPS button for a long time, on some wireless routers it will trigger a reset.
