Wireless password is stored in your Router. Some Routers have a way of auto assigning a password based on a PIN#
Cisco uses a USB flash drive "Key"
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other consumer electronics devices.
WPS lets you use push buttons or PINS instead of entering a network name (SSID) and wireless security by hand.
