So now I have:
Status: WiFi USB adapter status is active. WiFi connection status is active (IP: 192.168.1.13 192.168.189.1)

But how does this WPS thing work? My router reported success, but I had the ethernet cable plugged in so I was not connected via wifi. When I unplugged the ethernet cable and restarted the pi, it did not connect to wifi.

The instruction says: „Wifi Protected Setup: Enable WPS in your Router and reboot Max2Play to automatically set up WiFi. Starts only, if no LAN-cable connected!“

But then below there is a big button to Start Automatic Wifi Setup. How do I hit that button if ethernet is not connected?

So I started WPS on the router, and then restarted the pi, and I have wifi! It is working.

But I still do not understand if I needed to do the WPS or if I am connecting because the SSID and password are filled out?
