i have just connected to the nbn and would like to know what the 2 buttons on the back of my standup black modem are for.

 

one is labelled  WIFI   but when do you use that?   the other has a symbol like a lightning bolt on it can anyone help,with what that is used for 

Thanks in anticipation

Turn WIFI on and off?

Turn power on and off?

 

See what happens when you press the buttons...

Thanks for your reply I am not game to turn on and off.  There is another power off button so it can be that it is the one with the lightning bolt that has me confused could it be the WPS button

WiFi is off/on. The "lightning bolt"is definitely WPS.

The WPS button is only needed if you want to connect another WPS device in painlessly.

 

The WiFi On/Off button just stops the modem broadcasting any Wifi (Everything remains on though). Just click it back on to start transmitting WiFi again - not really sure why you would need it these days.
