How to disable WPS?

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?

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.

I dont think that really disables it.  I have Smart Connect enabled and when I connect to my WiFi using a new device, I get a message saying to enter the password OR press the button on my router.    Its pretty disappointing that Netgear does not give the option to disable such a feature, especially since its such a poor security standard (and security issue).

I'll request that Netgear adds that ability for you but it's not a guarantee they will do so
