Hello BrianLWinklerLL.

 

If your router is WPS-Ready, the WPS button would be located on your router itself.

 

If your router does not have a clearly marked 'WPS' button, please use the CD with your computer to perform the standard wireless installation.

I connected my MX452 to the internet then used the setup disk to install the printer on a new laptop. 

 

Software went thru routine to establish WiFi connection, including the "Press WPS button" instruction.
  There is no such button on my router.

 

AI alowed installation to proceed but no wireless connection was detected.  "Redetect" option failed to find connection.

 

What can I do now, please?  I made a connection on my last laptop without using a USB cable.

What a simple answer!  Why didn't my instruction book tell me.  I have been using a wired connection ever since I got my new computer about a year ago. That you very, very, much!

Thank you for your reply, Ramona.  I apologize for not responding till now.  I just became aware of your response.  I don't have the second computer in question any more so my question is moot.

 

I appreciate your courtesy.

HI Teely37,

 

The WPS button is a button that may be on the access point or router that you are trying to connect your printer to; there is not a WPS button on the printer.  Not all access points or routers have a WPS button, so if yours does not, you will not be able to setup the printer wirelessly using WPS, but can still connect the printer wirelessly using the USB connection method.

 

To connect the printer wirelessly to your access point/router using the USB connection method, please follow the steps located here.

 

Hope this helps!
