My netgear wifi adapter requires me to push connect button on my apple air to install. There is not connect bottom on the airport.  Any suggestions?

    If you have a recent Mac.....

     

    Open up Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility

     

    Click on the AirPort icon, then click Edit in the smaller window that appears

     

    Click the Base Station menu up at the top of the screen

     

    There is a setting for Add WPS Printer there, but it should work for vitually any WPS device

     

    Choose the First Attempt option as a substiture for a button, which the AirPort does not have

    Add WPS 1st Attempt.png

     

     

    If all else fails, then you will need to use the manual connection method suggeted by Netgear, not the WPS method.
