WPS lock out
There appears to be no way to lock out WPS. To allow or disallow WPS should be an admin permission. Anyone with access to the physical box could create a security risk. Visitors, cleaning personnel, and others could with the correct knowledge create a registered device on the wireless network, and at some later time from a location outside the home or office access the network. This is a major security hole. We often host large parties, and it is not possible to place the router behind locked doors.
Even the possible work-a-round to use Access Control is not sufficient, on page:
Advanced > Security > Access Control
What one would need is a third general rule that would be:
Block all new wireless devices from connecting.
And BTW, the header at the top of the page of this group is poorly written:
Access Rule: This is a general rule. You can also allow or block individual devices.
There are two general rules to choose from, so therefore the line should read:
Access Rules: These are general rules. You can also allow or block individual devices.
