   * You can connect the router with WPS **quick steps** (shortcut) (check the manual) or by choosing this network’s SSID identifier from the wireless networks your computer detects. The identifier begins with TP-LINK_ and the end consists of the six last digits of the device’s MAC address (MAC can be found on the sticker on the bottom of the device).
