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 !

Re: wps button on router

I just had an XB6 installed, but likewise could not find the WPS button.  All of my old routers had it?     Is it there one that exists?  The minimalist design is very nice, but when a printer asks you to press the WPS button to connect, and there isn't one, I have no idea where to look?

Is your question about WPS as your topic title indicates ? If so, and FWIW, I always advise posters to never use WPS. It is a potential security risk. Always disable it and manually configure your network settings !!;
