After pressing WPS
to configure it with an HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 4675 All-In-One Printer

The WPS didn’t work and worst the internet connection was down.
Checking it further, it reset the configuration of the TP-Link Archer C5 to default.

After re-configuration of the TP-Link Archer C5 to the desired setup, the internet was back and running again.
The WPS also worked well after setting it up.

Then adding another printer by pressing WPS, the same problem occurred again. NO INTERNET.

SOLUTION:

Troubleshooting the problem gave us the solution and learned a couple of things.
The WPS button is the same button as the RESET button.
When it is pressed less than 5 seconds it acts as WPS button.
When it is pressed more than 5 seconds it will RESET the wifi router deleting all the configuration with it.
