Hi

I think you should check what WLan card your Sat L40 uses.
The point is that the L40 notebooks could support different WLan cards like Intel, Atheros or Realtek Wlan card.

Check the Wlan card model and search on the manufacturers websites for hardware details.

Hi

I’m not sure but do you mean with WPs the Wi-Fi Positioning System" (WPS)?

If yes I think you have to check the specifications on the manufactures of WLAN card as Jayjay said. There you should find more informations about this technology.

To be honest I don’t know why the router needs the WPS support.

If you want to connect the notebook to the WLan router then you should ensure that the Wlan card is enabled. Enable the WLan antenna switch (notebooks side) and enable Wlan card using the Fn+F8.
Now you have to ensure that the WLan router would support the same encryption standard like the WLan card.
In most cases it’s WPA.

Configure the WLan settings using Atheros WLan configuration Utility or the Windows own WLan configuration options.

That’s all…
