WPS

I have installed a wifi extender but it can't be used because the WPS on my modem switches itself off 3 or 4 minutes after it is turned on.  It is an Otus Sagemcom.  Cna anyone help, please?

Re: WPS

WPS isn't meant to be 'on' indefinitely. Pushing the button provides a short 3 minute window where you can push a button on other devices and they can quickly join your network without typing in all the security settings etc. 

 

WPS Push button method:

 

In which the user has to push a button, either an actual or virtual one, on both the access point and the new wireless client device. On most devices, this discovery mode turns itself off as soon as a connection is established or after a delay (typically 2 minutes or less), whichever comes first, thereby minimizing its vulnerability
