How do you disable WPS on XR450 Nighthawk Router?


How do you disable WPS on XR450 Nighthawk Router?

I am trying to disable WPS on a XR450 Nighthawk Router, but I do not see an option to do so.   The only WPS settings I see is through the 'WPS Wizard' section.  Where is this setting located?

Re: How do you disable WPS on XR450 Nighthawk Router?

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the NightHawk Gaming Router products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with NH gaming router products and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this router forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:


Review the user manual. I don't remember seeing a way to disable it as it's mostly on all the time. No reason to disable it really. It only activates when the top button is pressed. 

Please use this link to the main forum product list to review and choose where to make your posts. 

Thank you.

I responded to your other topic: I believe if you have Smart Connect enabled then WPS is disabled, if you don't then there is no specific way to disable it as far as I am aware.
