Default Router PIN?

I have a netgear wireless router hooked up to my desktop. I am running a wireless card via usb cable and my netgear is working just fine, I keep getting a screen that asks for a PBC(push button configuration) or a PIN (personal identification number). I have no idea how to do either. It is blocking my internet connection for my desktop. Maybe you have a solution?
Thanks shylobak

Default Re: Router PIN?

Please clarify what model of router and wireless device you have.

What you describe sounds like the WPS feature that some routers/clients support.

This is a quote from the WNDR3300 ‘Add WPS Client’ setup page;

Add WPS Client Help

WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. This is a process that let you add a wireless client to the network easily, and you don't have to specificly configure the wireless settings like SSID, security mode, and passphrase.

You can select to add a wireless client either through the "Push Button" or "PIN Number".

You originally posted in a thread relating to the WPN824 which does not appear to have this feature, but your USB wireless client may have?
