I was trying to setup a WNR3500 (I believe that was the model - just purchased today at Bestbuy) and it wouldn't allow me to save any changes to the SSID field or WPA security settings. It gave me the cryptic message "WPS in Progress." I tried pushing the WPS to hopefully clear it and I tried powering off and on twice. The wireless worked okay but left them with an open network and stuck with an SSID of "NETGEAR." Please give me some steps to get the router to new wireless setting.

WPS is an automated mated procedure-- you press a button on the router, and on the client device, and the two devices automatically mate (sort of like bluetooth). The problem is that the router seems to think that someone has initiated a WPS procedure even when you haven't. Until the WPS procedure is canceled, it doesn't allow you to update any of the settings.
I found I could work around the problem by following these steps:
1. Use the web interface to initiate a WPS process
e.g. Click "Add WPS client" on the menu, then click the button to start the process
2. Cancel the WPS process
e.g. Click the cancel button on the admin web page
3. Now go and edit your router settings.
The above steps worked for me with my WNR2000
