Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) provided by D-Link gives you the ability to "push and click" to create a Wi-Fi network and include encrypted security for your users. The setup is beneficial for Wi-Fi owners who provide a connection for customers, such as in a coffee shop or restaurant. You can disable the WPS security in order to manage encryption and settings without the wizard.
