    How do I disable Wifi Protected Setup?

    After reading a Brian Krebs security article, I wanted to disable Wifi Protected Setup on my Linksys 2000.
    I've looked at all the options available on my router and can't see how to do that.
    Can some kind soul help me out here?
    Thank you,
    Dick

    I don't think you can. See this Linksys forum thread.

    Looks like your only options are to replace the router or replace the firmware with dd-wrt or Tomato.

    Yes, I worked with a E2000 if that's the same model and there were more problems and shortcomings than that. Best thing that happened to the one I wasted my time on was it was taken out by a passing thunderstorm.
