AOSS
AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System) is a simple system for
confguring your wireless network securely. If your router and your
client device are installed and both support AOSS, then making a
securewirelessconnectionbetweenthemisveryeasy.

If you have a standalone client device,

About 15 seconds later, you’ll have a

If your client device is a PC card,
CardBus, or PCI adaptor, the AOSS
button will probably be in its Client

device’s user manual for instructions
on where to push or click the AOSS
button.
After you’ve pressed both buttons, it will take about 15 seconds for the connection to
