Netgear Router Has it got WPS ?

I have an aged Netgear Router DG834G. Does anyone know if it supports WPS protocol or if not, how I can find out. I have looked at the setting and cannot see WPS mentioned. It is secured with a WEP key.

That's quite an old model that doesn't support WPS.

By the way, WEP wireless security is massively insecure and can be hacked within minutes so use WPA instead if your devices support it.

Thanks SS. Iwill be getting a new router soon, and am aware that WEP is outdated. Just need to get my smart TV set up for now.

If it has only got WEP (and not even WPA) encryption I'm pretty certain it won't have WPS.

The Netgear DG834G does support WPA.
