I am trying to set up my Dell V525W wireless printer. Following the instruction, it asked me to push the WPS button on the CISCO Model DPC825 modem, but I cannot find the WPS button? The specification indicates that the router is WPS available.
On the back of the modem, there is a resessed reset button and a WPS button sticking out.
There is only one button sticking out, and is labeled as RESET. Are you referring to this button?
How long do I need to press that button? I pressed it and counted 10 sec. but still, the WPS connection failed.
No idea, when you press it, does the WPS light on the front light up?
I've never used WPS,
When I pressed the WPS button, the WPS light on the front does not do anything, no "running around".
Check to see if WPS is enabled when you log into the router? Should be in the Wireless section somewhere
I am sorry. I am just dump, totally have no clue of what you are talking about. What do you mean by logging into the router?
It's OK if you feel that you can no longer guide me along. I am just following instruction on the manual and have spent about 3 hours trying to get help from Dell Technical Support and was bounced around from one person to another and different telephone numbers. Thanks a lot for all your help.
Yeah, I know when you log into the router there is options to disable and enable the WPS
But, instead of using WPS, can you not just enter the security code into your printer?
That's what I thought initially, just like setting up the smart TV, phone, etc. So I try the other option provided by the Printer Reference guide, but ends up with a different screen, no screen to prompt me to enter the user name or security code.
I never have to log into the router, Shaw came around, set up the modem, my internet works, my phone works, my TV works, have never seen the screen to disable and enable the WPS.
But one thing stated in the printer reference guide, - Look for any of these identifier marks to check if your access point is WPS certified. None of those 3 particular WPS certified identifier markers showed up on the CISCO Model DPC825 modem. Can this be the problem?
Its on the box,
If you look at this picture, on the far right side,
There is a hole (with a resessed button) and a button sticking out.
The WPS button in on the bottom sticking out, reset is in the hole on top.
Yes, that's the button I pressed after your first response. Tried it many times, nothing happened, no "running" lights, etc., just no response.
It should be the last light on the front of the modem "Wireless Setup" that should be flashing indicating WPS is activated. However to make this easier get your setup CD for the printer and run it on your PC, as per the printer manual on page 92 this is how you install the printer on a wireless network:
All the WiFi setup information you'll need to enter in the setup process is on the sticker affixed to the top of Cisco DPC3825 router.
The problem is my Microsoft Surface has no CD device, nowhere can I insert the CD!! I just hate all this new stuff.
Ah the surface, ok I sent you a direct message, check your ^Inbox above.
I will check your account to see if your Cisco is setup correctly.
