[edit] Introduction

The SES/AOSS/EZ-SETUP is the button you can find on your router. You can use that button to Enable/Disable Wireless or to execute scripts when it's pressed.

[edit] Prerequisites

In order to get the SES/AOSS/EZ-SETUP to work, you must have Reset Button ENABLED, located in the Administration -> Management section

[edit] Turning on/off wireless

You can turn on/off the wireless transmit of your router by pressing this button. Ofcourse before that you have to enable the service for that. Therefore go to Services -> Services and tick Enable at the "SES / AOSS / EZ-SETUP Button" group

[edit] Run script when button pressed

You can also run a script when the SES/AOSS/EZ-SETUP button is pressed, therefore have a look at Script types. **Note:** You must have "Use this button for turning off radio" disabled (see section immediately above)

[edit] Example to test custom button script

The following instructions will create a script that will flash the DMZ LED 10 times when you press the SES/AOSS/EZ-SETUP button.

Type in the following commands:

 mkdir /tmp/etc/config

Make a file blink.sesbutton with the following contents (e.g. "vi /tmp/etc/config/blink.sesbutton"):

 for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10;do
   gpio disable 7
   usleep 50000
   gpio enable 7
   usleep 50000
 chmod 744 /tmp/etc/config/blink.sesbutton

Now when you press the SES/AOSS/EZ-SETUP button the DMZ light will flash 10 times.

[edit] Caution

Pressing the AOSS button on a WHR-HP-G54 while booting may brick the router.

There is also a risk that it will break the radio on the WHR-HP-G54 without bricking the router.
