Hello @MjC48074 . It will my pleasure to assist you with your question. When you stated that you have an xFi tower, which type of xFi tower do you own ? If you're not sure, please visit for a visual for all our capable xFi towers (gateways): https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/broadband-gateways-userguides

 

The button you are referring to is the WPS Button ( WiFi Protected Setup ). It allows you to connect other devices (such as smartphones, tablets, etc) instead of entering the WiFi Password. For more information about WPS button, please visit : https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/wifi-protected-setup. I hope this helps !

As an FYI, WPS has a security vulnerability. You can Google for more info. Never use it. Disable it and always configure your WiFi settings manually !
