AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System) is a simple system for
conﬁ guring your wireless network securely. If your router and your client
device are connected and both support AOSS, then making a secure wireless
connection is very easy.
Push the AOSS button on the top of your router and hold it in for a few
seconds. The AOSS light will begin to ﬂ ash amber. You now have two minutes
to push the AOSS button on your client device and ﬁ nish the connection.
If you have a standalone client device,
it will probably have a little red button
labled “AOSS” on it. Push the button!
About 15 seconds later, you’ll have a
secure network connection.
If your client device is a PC card,
CardBus, or PCI adaptor, the AOSS
button will probably be in its Client
Manager Software. Check your client
device’s user manual for instructions
on where to push or click the AOSS
After you’ve pressed both buttons, it will take about 15 seconds for the connection to
complete. When it’s ﬁ nished, the AOSS light witll glow a solid amber. You now have a
secure network connection!

◗ It is not necessary to AOSS client devices that have already been conﬁ gured via AOSS,
unless signiﬁ cant changes have been made to the wireless network.
◗ Do not attempt to conﬁ gure two separate AOSS networks at the same time, as it may
cause undesired conﬁ gurations.
◗ If an undesired client has connected via AOSS, it can be disconnected from within the
WHR-HP-G54’s advanced conﬁ guration menus.
