    Wi-Fi® Protected Setup (WPS) is a built-in feature of many routers that make it easier to connect Wi-Fi enabled devices to a secure wireless network. This information is provided to help connect your TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, or other supported home video products to a wireless network using WPS.

    Before you start

    Android TV™ devices with or updated to Android™ 8.0 Oreo™ operating system or newer don't support WPS and won't have the WPS option in the Network settings.

    Make sure your router supports the WPS feature. Refer to your router documentation or contact the manufacturer to learn how to use and setup the WPS feature of your router.

    Note: Some manufactures may use the following terms instead of WPS (Push Button) to describe this function.

    • Wi-Fi Simple Config
    • Push 'n' Connect
    • PBC
    • Quick Secure Setup (QSS)
