Fibre Router with WAP

Only been with Plusnet for two weeks and fairly pleased apart from the router has no WAP BUTTON and looks like something from the ark compared to our bt home hub2.
Cannot get the sound system connect asks us to press the WAP BUTTON  to pair which appears not to be on the Plusnet router same with the wireless printer, though the printer menu does suggest it can be paired by using a code but that's beyong your average 60 year old.
Need something plug and play here ASAP so missing our AirPlay and having to print out any necassary docs at work.

That's a shame, you could have reused it on PlusNet. Sad

Re: Fibre Router with WAP

The button you need is 'WPS', not WAP.  On the TG582n it is the right hand button on the top.

I think you mean WPS?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi-Fi_Protected_Setup
WAP was the mobile data standard before HSDPA when mobiles first came out in the 80s.
Mine has one - to the far right those look like clear panels but they are buttons. Press it for a second  and it should flash orange and then you can go ahead.
