OK Help : WPS Settings close The WPS Settings area allows you to modify Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) operation. Note: To use WPS to synchronise a new device to the Super Hub the Super Hub needs to have the appropriate wireless band Primary Wireless Network set to use WPA-Auto or WPA2-PSK[AES] security. WPS helps simplify the process of securely connecting to your wireless network by facilitating a time period where WPS enabled devices can easily seek, find and connect to your secured wireless network without the need to manually enter a wireless network name (SSID) and/or passphrase. There are three WPS methods which can be used:- Push Button: Press the Virgin Media button on the front of the Super Hub for 2-3 seconds, followed by the WPS/Sync button on the device you are trying to connect. Note: some devices use a 'virtual' (software) based push button, as opposed to a 'physical' button on the device itself. Please refer to the device's manual for details on how to access this. PIN (Super Hub): Enter the Super Hub's WPS PIN into the device you are trying to connect (please refer to the device's manual for details on how to access the PIN entry area). Note: The Super Hub's 'default' WPS PIN can be found on the label on the back of the unit. PIN (Device): Select Pin on this page and enter the devices WPS PIN into the field provided. Enable WPS: Enables Wi-Fi Protected Setup. Note: If the Primary Wireless Network security settings are not set to WPA-Auto or WPA2-PSK[AES] then these will be set to WPA-Auto with the passphrase printed on the Super Hub as part of enabling WPS. Any devices configured to use the existing settings in the Primary Wireless SSID will not be able to connect until they are reconfigured to the new WPA settings. Note: WPS only supports WPA-Auto and WPA2-PSK[AES] wireless security. WEP security is not supported. Note: The button to initiate WPS Sync on the Super Hub is located on the front of the unit (the Virgin Media button). Alternatively you can use the 'soft' button below. Enable Super Hub WPS PIN Setup: Disabling this option will prevent use of the Super Hub's WPS PIN to connect client devices. You are still able to connect client devices to the Super Hub using the client's WPS PIN or via the Push Button method for connecting client devices. This is also known as 'Disabling the External Registrar'. WPS PIN: Displays the WPS PIN that can be used to manually connect a WPS enabled wireless device to the Super Hub. Generate new WPS PIN (button): Allows you to generate a new WPS PIN. Any new wireless devices using WPS to connect to your wireless network will need to use this PIN. Primary Wireless Security Status: This table displays for each of the wireless frequency bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) the current status of the wireless band and its primary wireless SSID and if it is able to work with WPS. The status will be one of the following. Valid - The wireless frequency band is enabled and the primary wireless SSID security settings for that band are compatible with WPS. Invalid Security Settings - The wireless frequency band is enabled but the primary wireless SSID security settings for that band are not compatible with WPS. If you want to use WPS on this wireless frequency band you will need to change the security settings for the primary SSID for that wireless security band in the advanced settings section of the Super Hub. Wireless Disabled - The wireless frequency band is disabled therefore the device will not be able to connect to the Super Hub on this wireless frequency band. Add WPS Client: Select how you want to add a new WPS client via the GUI. You can use either the Push Button or PIN method. WPS Sync (button): Will initiate WPS Sync. This can be used as an alternative to pressing the Virgin Media button on the front of your Super Hub. Number Of Failed WPS Attempts: This counter shows the number of failed WPS attempts since the last time the counter was reset. Failed attempts can be caused by a number of factors including user error, signal interference, a device with poor WPS implementation or an attacker trying to gain access to your wireless network. If you notice this count increasing steadily over time, this could indicate that someone is attempting to gain unauthorised access to your wireless network. Under these circumstance we recommend that you disable WPS functionality when not in use, by un-ticking the Enable WPS tick box. Reset: This will reset the failed WPS attempts counter. WPS Lock-Down Status: This indicates the current security status of the WPS function. Ok: This is the normal operating state; your Super Hub has not detected any abnormal WPS activity. Blocked: Your Super Hub has detected an abnormally high number of failed WPS attempts which could be due to someone attempting to gain unauthorised access to your wireless network. To protect your wireless network the Super Hub has disabled (Blocked) use of WPS as a means of connecting new devices. You can release your Super Hub from this WPS Blocked state by clicking the 'Release' button on this page. Release: Clicking this button will cancel any WPS Blocked state.
