Adding Z wave with WPS

I am having difficulty add Jalsco (Honeywell-zw3104) Z wave dimmer to my network using the WPS to my Orbi RBK853 router/network. I have replaced a previous network and everything worked just fine.  Any suggestions?

Can't find much on this product, but what I see it's a Z-wave dimmer sold under different brands. Either way, I doubt it does connect direct to a Wi-Fi network. Is it possible your old router came with some Z-wave interface or there is a Z-wave gateway/controller in the game?

I agree with @schumaku .  The User Manual for this product specifically says it requires a "Z-Wave Controller".  It is not a WiFi device.

Yes, that's one source I've checked, too.

Do you have a Hub setup for the Zwave product?

Orbi RBK53 System/RBR50/RBS50/RBS50. + Orbi Voice RBS40V
RBK753 system/RBR750/RBS750/RBS750 + RBK853 System/RBR850/RBS850/RBS850

There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!

The previous network appears to be the key question.  There are some residential WiFi routers that include Z-Wave and Zigbee. The Orbi does not.

 

So, exactly which router was installed when "everything worked"?

I love my Orbi.
