Can't load the Buffalo Wireless N WHR-G300N router IP address
I bought a Buffalo Wireless N WHR- G300N router, connected it to my computer, connected all the cables correctly, did everything right.. it reckons it installed correctly.. however I cant load the provided IP Address to change the configurations to be able to allow a wireless connection. My laptop cant connect to it for some reason keeps coming up as ''The device does not work with the selected settings. Select compatible wireless settings, and then try again''. I'm using vista basic, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks heaps :)

You can reset your Buffalo router by pressing and holding the reset button on the back of it for 4-10 seconds. The IP address to sign into the router will be 192.168.11.1. The username will be root and the password should be left blank. The following website has more information on your router also.
You have to change the DNS servers on your PC's internet connection. Instead of using DHCP, type in the two IP addresses from your account at dydns.com.. Right click on your connection icon and choose, "properties".. In the panel presented, choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) the last item in the panel. Next click 'properties' and remove the dot from "obtain IP automatically". Next, type in your new DNS server IP's. The top panel is for you PC address which has to be between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.224. It doesn't matter what IP you choose as long as it is not an address used by another device). The subnet mask will fill itself in. Default gateway is 192.168.1.1. In the bottom panel fill in your new IP's. That's it.
Some wireless routers have a pinhole reset button on the back of the router. If so, use a sharp point to press and hold this button until the LED lights flash, then release the reset button. The router should be restored back to the factory defaults.
You can then open IE browser and type in the configuration IP address of the router to configure the wireless settings, you most likely need to connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router, configure the wireless settings (ie SSID, encryption etc) take a note of these settings and configure the wireless card on the computer with these settings. Then the computer can communicate with the router without using a LAN cable.
Try opening network connections TCP/IPv4 on your pc and add ip address manualy to be in the same number match the same as your router ie default gateway and preferred DNS Server eg 192.168.1.1 or 10.1.1.1 depending on what default the router is set on the ip address should be the same apart from the last no. eg 192.168.1.8 or 10.1.1.8 subnet mask will default to the right setting if you push the tab key after entering the ip address
It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is notsetup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISPor both.
To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this) a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes. The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr. Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:
Toconfigure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Controlpanel => network connections => Properties (right click on yourdefault connection) => double click Internet protocol (From generaltab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that"obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following: IP Addr => 10.10.1.1 Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0 Default gateway => IP address from your ISP Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.
