I think it is the other way round. You put your router WAP code into the printer. Read the manual how to do that.

Depending what printer you use then when you try to connect to the printer on the PC, and asks for the PIN, look at the printer's display. It should display the PIN number briefly.

There are two ways to connect the printer wirelessly: either connect the printer to the router and connect that way, or a direct connection from the PC to the printer using direct connect. The first method needs the WPS PIN from the router, the latter needs the WPS PIN displayed on the printer.
