While using a pool laptop from work and trying to connect to my home wifi I am prompted for my Device Ownership Password. It will only accept numerics, I believe this is requesting the ‘Security Pin’ which is stamped on the bottom of my netgear router.
This is only happening because the laptop is using Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software, no other devices I have ever ask for this.
It can be disabled by:
Control Panel -> add or remove programs -> Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Software -> Repair -> Modify -> WI-FI PROTECTED SETUP (change to not installed)
Now connecting to the WiFi I am just prompted for my network password, like all other devices.
