Not able to connect HP Deskjet 3051A printer to Wireless

I bought a HP Deskjet 3051A All-in-one printer last week. The problem I am not able to connect the printer to the wireless network. It has two option - (1) Push button - I cant use this because my Verizon wireless router doesn't have a WPS button in it. The second option gives a PIN number to be configured in the Router gateway. Now I don't see how to do it. I do not have an option to enter the PIN number that the printer provides me.


Any suggestions would help.

The PIN that you are seeing is also referring to WPS.  That is one of two WPS modes.


This model attaches to the network by way of installing the software.  Part of the software install is getting the printer attached to the network.
