WPS on OpenWRT -- Enabling Wi-Fi Protected Setup on OpenWRT
##
## WPS on OpenWRT
## This script enables Wi-Fi Protected Setup on OpenWRT.
##
## Resources
## http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/uci/wireless#wps.options
##
#Install the full wpad package
opkg update
opkg remove wpad-mini
opkg install wpad hostapd-utils
#Enable WPS on the Wifi network interface.
# Notes:
# * The network interface should be configured to support WPA2-PSK
# * This script assumes the last interface is the one used for WPS, hence using @wifi-iface[-1]
# * You can view all the wireless interfaces by issuing the following command and getting the index of the correct one
# uci show wireless
uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[-1].wps_pushbutton=1
#The following are all optional
uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[-1].wps_device_name="OpenWRT AP"
uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[-1].wps_manufacturer="openwrt.org"

When we use our gateway as a client, should not we need to change /etc/config/wireless mode and /etc/config/network options too?

Worked great on Archer C7 v2.0, thanks. It did show up with error 'Failed to connect to hostapd - wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or directory' during the script, but the button still worked fine.

@etskinner:
you may try
hostapd_cli -i wlan0 wps_pbc
and
hostapd_cli -i wlan0 wps_get_status
