About WPS

WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a method that allows you to easily connect network devices to a secure wireless network. 

  • The setup procedure generally involves pressing a button on the access point or wireless router during device setup (check access point/router & manual).  
  • You do not need to know your SSID or password (network key) when using this method.
  • If you have a WLAN access point/router that supports WPS, you can easily connect your Canon wireless printer to your home network.
