Activate WPS on hAC

Sat Feb 16, 2019 3:41 pm

Hi I'm trying to activate WPS on my Routerboard hAP ac. I tried what is in here: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... WPS_Server
but after /interface wireless set wps-mode=push-button it asks for numbers:

What do I enter here?

You need to define which interface to set:
/interface wireless set wlan1 wps-mode=push-button
Recommendation: Do not use insecure WPS and keep it disabled.

Mikrotik would not give us WPS if it was not secure.

I need wps for wireless powerswitches. They do have a manual mode to setup the wifi connection that mode however is unsecure as it requires a temporary p2p wifi connection between smartphone and power-switch. WPS is the secure way to set them up.

WPS is very secure as it is switched off after that.

LOL! Do you really think Mikrotik will only provide functionality if it is secure!?

Sounds like a valid reason, indeed WPS is only secure if it turned off.

Push-button WPS seems secure, but the vulnerability being that anyone with physical access to the AP could push the button and connect, even if they didn't know the Wi-Fi pass.

Push-button WPS seems secure, but the vulnerability being that anyone that knows the password could connect, even if they can't physically access your office.
