WPS One-Button Security
Compatible with Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS), TL-WPA281 features WPS One-Button Security Setup that allows users to almost instantly setup their security simply by pressing the "WPS" button on the adapter, automatically establishing a WPA2 secure connection, which is more secure than WEP encryptions.
