does time capsule support WiFi protected setup (WPS)?

Just got a HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-one 8210 series printer when I bought my new mac book pro. I was wondering if Time Capsule supports WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) for easy one-buttin wireless setup?

    No, to my knowledge the Time Capsule does NOT support WPS. That it GOOD news, since WPS has been broken! WPS is no longer considered safe. It should be disabled on ANY router, no matter what brand or model.
    While WPS is off, do a 'manual' configuration. To make your printer join your WLAN, go to its setup panel and enter the name (ESSID) and password and -if necessary- tell it to use DHCP. Then it will happily join the network automatically and you're done.
