No WPS on SBG8300! trying to set up TP-LINK RE615X extender


We have a few dead spots so I bought the TP-Link RE615X- very popular on an online retailer. “works with any wi-fi router” “secure one touch connection (WPS)”  Well the surfboard doesn’t have a WPS button and the alternatives TP-Link gives aren’t working.

Is there a way to access a WPS reset through the router software?

SBG8300 doesnt have physical button for WPS you can only setup on the modem GUI or web interface of the modem so please do fllow the steps mentioned on the below link to setup WPS option.


It works!  Relatively painless.   Thank you!
