I don't see anything that indicates WPS is supported on this printer.

 HP Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One Printer (B9S76A, B9S78A, B9S79A) Specifications

Connectivity

Direct print supported
Wireless direct printing; Memory card slot; USB printing
Wireless capability
Yes
Connectivity, standard
2 USB 2.0; 1 Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n; 1 Ethernet; 1 RJ-11 fax

 

The very best method to connect your printer is to use Ethernet (RJ45 cable) connected to the router.

 

Yeah, but what about WPS?

That said, if WPS were supported, and your printer is not one of the new Envy Pro 60xx or Deskjet Plus models,

then the WPS password is located / expressed on the router.
