    WPS

    WPS ( ‎Wi-Fi Protected Setup™) is a wireless networking standard that helps you establish secure wireless network connections.

You can also add new devices to an existing network without entering long passwords.

    Use one of these methods to enable WPS:
    • Push button method – simply push a button on a WPS-supported device, for example, a router.
    • PIN method – your device creates a random PIN (Personal Identification Number), which you enter on the WPS-supported device.

    To connect to a Wi-Fi network using a WPS PIN

    1. From your Home screen, tap Icn sony home apptray normal.
    2. Find and tap Settings > Wi-Fi .
    3. Turn on ‎Wi-Fi if it is not already on.
