Avoid Brute force attack on WPS

Category : FAQ

WPS or QSS is a short name for Wi-Fi Protected Setup, it is an easy method for setting up a wireless secured connection between wireless router (or AP) and client (adapter) quickly.
Sometimes we call WPS as QSS (Quick Security Setup) on some E-Lins wireless device.

Normally there are three ways to build the WPS connection:
1. Press the WPS button on both wireless router and client;
2. Register client’s PIN code on router’s WEB manage page;
3. Register router’s PIN code on client’s utility.
 
It has been reported that many wireless routers do not implement any kind of lock out policy for brute force attempts.
 
E-Lins has been aware of this problem and has designed a lock out policy against brute force attack on WPS PIN. After several failed WPS attempts from a client, the router will lock out WPS connection through router’s PIN. We have implemented this policy on our popular WPS-enabled model. 
 
For the users of other models, we suggest you disable WPS function by following steps
 
Step 1:
Enter the router web browser.
 
Step 2:
On the left side menu, please find the WPS (or QSS).

Step 3:
Click on Disable WPS.
