Feature request: WPS wi-fi connection

Mon Nov 10, 2014 11:28 pm

I have Epson L355 printer that can connect to wi-fi router via WPS or SES (don't know what it is) only. I don't want to replace my RG951G-2hnd to some other only because I cannot connect printer to wi-fi. I beg you to add such functionality and I'm ready to do beta testing as soon as possible.

Is WPS the only way, normal WPA2-PSK password can't be used? WPS was a nice idea but turned out to be insecure by design, and is best to leave disabled.

there must be a way to configure the printer manually. I can't imagine Epsom only providing a WPS connectivity option.

Not sure if you need to enable WPS, because it is cracked within 10 hours if you use 8 digit PIN. So it it even worse then WEP :shock:

WPS is insecure. I donot recommend its use.
It is a special case of WPA,

That is not entirely true. WPS only problem is PIN mode. RouterOS doesn't support PIN mode, only button mode. Button mode is secure.

Hi Normis,
How can I get more information about WPS in RouterOS?
Do something about it was added to the MikroTik wiki?

not yet

to use WPS you need cm2 package enabled in RouterOS v6.25. Then in Wireless settings you need to enable WPS. Older devices don't have a easy to use button, so you will have to use the Virtual buton in Quickset.

Windows laptop will see that there is a protected AP which offers WPS. When WPS is chosen, the Windows laptop will ask you to go and push the WPS button (either on the device, or in QuickSet). This allows to connect to a protected AP without knowing the password.

That's it.

Thanks Normis

I test the Soft button on wlan interface. This worked correctly.
But my question is, Whether the hard button is on the router?
I test the mode button on mAP-2n, But do not work as WPS button.

future devices will have a WPS button.
for existing products, RouterOS/RouterBOOT update will possibly add this function to the reset button, but currently only the mAP and cAP has easy to use buttons

It is great idea to use mode button (in mAP-2n) as wps button and ability to disable that in configuration.
