Is there a WPS "push the button" support?

Hello everyone!

One of the things I loved about my Android phones is that I could connect to WPS networks simply by pushing the button on them. Since all of my last 5 phones had this option I don't even know my router password.

I have just bought the Xperia Z and it looks like Sony decided to go the Apple way and leave this option out?

Or am I being dumb and can't find the option? Slightly smiling Face

Thank you!

What about the WPS button on the Wi-Fi settings screen? Works fine for me.

So when you press the "WPS pin entry" button in the Z Wi-Fi menu and the countdown starts what actually happens ? ( I have an old router so I've never had to do this)

jcarr1, no that's something else. I have to admit that's as far as I got as well. haha Slightly smiling Face

Nick89, thank you!!! It works!

I would have NEVER guessed by this symbol. I thought it was a "refresh" button. Dizzy Face

Thank you for such a clear reply!

I kept showing off the WPS feature to all my iPhone friends and would have hated not to be able to do this anymore)))
