Hi Mike,

WPS is typically used when connecting to a wireless network. Recent routers have a WPS button on them that once pressed, will allow any device trying to connect to it to connect without the need of a password. You can still enter the network key to connect through wireless without having to go through the WPS setup.

WPS pin entry is found by going into Settings > Wi-Fi - tap the three small dots (menu) that appear in the upper right hand corner of the phones' screen and select WPS Pin Entry or WPS Push Button. (You may have to select 'Advanced' depending on which Android version your phone is using).

For reference, scroll to the bottom of the page in the link below and look under the heading 'Advanced Wi-Fi Settings' and click on 'Edit advanced options'.
