how to disable wi-fi protected setup on 2wire 3600HGV router?

How do I properly disable wi-fi protected setup on the 2wire 3600HGV router? I've read that it makes it much easier for people to crack your WPA2 key.

It's either on or off. 

 

http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_2_1 then under wi-fi protected setup, make sure it's set to disabled.  By default that is the setting.

What is the circular button (with a keyhole symbol) on the front of the router for? Does pressing it turn on WPS?

If you enable WPS, the button on the bottom begins the WPS process. On my 3801, I tried to use it but it just kept flashing and didn't work when I tried to start WPS on both devices. On my desktop it worked though.
