We ship all our technicolor routers with WPS off.

Does this survive a factory reset?
Product Name: TG585 v8
Software Release: 8.2.7.8
If not what is the WPS facility called and on which router management screen does it appear?

Hi Martin,
Yes, this does survive a factory reset. There is no web interface to enable WPS, you'll need to do this through the telnet interface. If you're interested then the command is:
:wireless wps config ssid_id=0 state=enabled
And if you change your mind, to disable then run this:
:wireless wps config ssid_id=0 state=disabled

OK.. 2 questions.
1. Is there a Telnet command to query the current status?
2. Any other usefulTelnet commands that are not available in the web interface?
PS The part of the web interface that confused me was on the Wireless config page.
The item is called "Allow New Devices:".
The options are "New stations not allowed", "New stations are allowed (via registration)", or "New stations are allowed (automatically)"
I wondered if this was WPS.

If you telnet into the router and do
wireless wps config
(without the state= parameter) it will tell you the current state (eg WPS disabled)
After enabling it I think you need to do
saveall
to ensure the changed setting survives reboot.

Do you know anyone who wants to sit outside your house for 10 hours, so they can intercept your valuable traffic?
Excess of paranoia...

No, but I guess if anyone did want to I would not know them.

No, excess of curiosity about how things work.
