When adding printer to second computer, it requests the WPS number of my HP Envy 4520. Answers to this question have been to look quicly for it on the control panel of the printer as it will show the number for about 10 seconds when you click to add the printer. But my printer has been added to my compter a long time and I have not needed the number until now. I cannot find it on the control panel, or in the manual, or on my router. My router has the letters WPS on it, but not lit up and no number showing. Please help me in how to find the number.
Sorry, but when I click on the link you gave me, the entire article is about finding the network password. I know that because it is written on my router. Nothing was mentioned about finding the WPS number which is what I needed to know. WPS is written on my router, but it does not light up or does it show a number.
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) – WPS has two modes to connect devices together over a wireless connection. One is called "pushbutton" and the other is called "PIN". Pushbutton is by far the easiest method. We will describe how to connect using the WPS push button method, but not the PIN method.
For instructions on starting WPS on your printer consult your printer's manual. However, there are some conditions that need to be met in order to use WPS pushbutton mode:
Both your printer and wireless router must support WPS pushbutton mode. Consult your printer and wireless router manuals.
The wireless router must have a physical WPS pushbutton available.
Your network must use WPA or WPA2 security. Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if WEP or no security is used.
Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if you are using the manufacturer’s default for the network name and no security.
To connect your wireless printer to your wireless router using WPS:
Start the WPS pushbutton mode on your printer.
For instructions on starting WPS on your printer, consult your printer's manual.
Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your router.
