Hi Folks,

Is there a way of at lest emulating WPS functionality in DD-WRT? Now more and more equipment is wi-fi enabled with only single button for WPS setup (i.e. my scale or my Miracast TV dongle). And it is impossible to connect such an equipment to DD-WRT router.

My workaround is to have backup router with stock firmware with WPS, use it for setting up the connection on a new device with same Wi-Fi settings as on the base router.

You have to admin - this is not the most convenient way of working this out...

Is there any script option for this? Any solution?

Not sure of your exact fact pattern/client devices...

fwiw

Once upon a time I had a printer that wanted wps only for setup.

I had to connect it via USB, then manually setup WiFi (ssid/passphrase) over usb. After that it would work with dd-wrt wirelessly.

Since you have it connected via 2nd router with stock firmware do your clients have a web GUI admin option you could now leverage (for manual config)?

...

That is one solution but what about the equipment without the possibility to connect other way than Wi-Fi? I have such a case now - my wireless scale - it has only button for WPS
