what is a WPS printer
I am using AirPort Extreme Base Station to add a wireless canon printer. Found some directions online that tell me to go to airport utility, select my AP Extreme, click on Base Station at top menu bar and select add wifi printer...but mine says add WPS printer. What is that?

"WPS" means "Wifi protected setup". It is supposed to be a fast way to connect devices to a wireless network. Check apple support article HT3500. WPS setup only works if the printer uses WPS, and that depends on the printer model. If your printer has it, it will usually have a sticker with a PIN code that you can enter so that the base station and the printer can talk to each other. Hope this helps!
