Question about Buffalo Technology WHR-G54S Wireless Router (WHR2G54S)

1 Answer

Cannot get onto internet

I have the Buffalo router and I can connect to the internet fine on my laptop and my desktop computer. However, when I try to use my laptop from work at home, I cannot get onto the internet. When I display the list of wireless connections, I see the Wireless Network Connection and the status shows Connected, Firewalled. Is there a setting on my internet connection to only allow certain computers access? When I travel with my work laptop, I have to problems finding a wireless connection and geting onto the internet. Thanks!

Disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

Yahoo mail error 999

I have seen this happen when a router stores a "CACHED" address for a website. The only solution is to power off the router (reboot wont always resolve).

Other things to check:
- Make sure the Comcast and Buffalo routers are not using the same subnet.
- Try to use an alternate DNS on the Buffalo, is a good one (its googles DNS)

Wireless keep failing.

It might not be a router issue. If there is a DNS conflict, then check the connection settings on your computer. If possible, automatically assign IP and DNS.

Primary DNS should be the IP of your router or internet gateway ( or similar). Secondary DNS

If your router is connected to the net and you can receive and send data, then the problem will be a local one (LAN rather than WAN).

If all else fails, reset the router and start from scratch.

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.

Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
