    Where is the router? These buffalos have a tendancy to overheat if your not careful, do not do not stack it with something on top of it.
    For the record there are such things as drive incompatibility with Acer.
    Second have you checked what programs are running in your background on the PC? Some programs are notorious for taking up your connection and then dropping you, ran into that with some nasty virus, would only allow itself access to the connection.
    Lastly try booting into safemode with networking (hit F8 before windows logo) and see what that does.

If you know how to access the configuration page of your router, change your channel and check also your distance from the router itself.

Let me verify your network configuration with you. You have your modem connected to the WAN/Internet port of your router via an ethernet cable and then your PC connected to your router via another ethernet cable, correct?

If this is your setup, then try this:

  1. Unplug the power cord from the modem & router
  2. Plug the power cord into the modem and wait for it to boot up (most modems have an "Internet/Connection" light to indicate they are connected to the ISP)
  3. Plug in the power to the router, wait for it to complete the bootup process (usually when the lights stop flashing it's done), and see what happens.

  1. After unpacking your Buffalo wireless router, connect the ethernet cable from your jack to the rightmost ethernet port on the back of the router. This is the blue WAN port labeled "Internet". Next, use another ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router, using any of the 4 remaining open ethernet ports on the back. Finally, plug the AC adapter into the power port on the router and plug it into the wall.
  2. Once the router has been plugged into the network and powered on, the power light will come on and the other status lights on the front will go through a series of flashes. Once the leftmost diagnostic light labeled "Diag" has gone off and the light labeled "Router" has come on, this means your router has been initialized and is connected to the network.
  3. Now open a web browser window and enter 192.168.11.1 in the URL field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and password to access your router settings. You should enter "root" (without quotes) as the username and leave the password field blank, then click OK. You are now taken to a page where you can configure your Buffalo wireless router.
  4. Click on the Admin Config button on the top right of this page. Enter a name for your AirStation and click Apply. Wait for the router to restart with the new setting, you may have to refresh your browser window.

  5. Next click on the Password button in the small row of choices under Admin Config. The Administrator name is fixed as "root" however, you should now choose an Administrator Password (8 characters or less) and enter it in the two fields provided, then click Apply. Wait for the router to restart, and you will be prompted to login with the username "root" and the new password you just set up. If you choose a password over 8 characters long, you will be unable to login and will have to reset your wireless router by using the pinhole on the bottom.

  6. Next click on the Wireless Config button on the top, third from left. In the small row of choices under Wireless Config, click Basic(11g). Make sure the box labeled Enable next to the Wireless Radio setting is checked. For the SSID setting, switch to the second choice Use: and then choose a name for your wireless network. You should write this name down and keep it near your wireless router in case you forget it. Click Apply.

  7. Next click on the Security(11g) choice under Wireless Config along the top of the page. For the Wireless Authentication setting, select WPA/WPA2 mixedmode - PSK. For the WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) field, choose a password that is between 8 and 63 characters (letters and numbers only) and enter it here. Click Apply. buffalo04.jpg
  8. Your Buffalo wireless router will restart and is now configured to connect securely to the Internet.

I use a cable internet connection which works. When I connect the router, I ran cable to blue connection on router and another ethernet cabel from the computer to another port on the router. When I do...


Turn the cable-modem off.
Turn the router off.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'INTERNET') port on the router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect one of the 'LAN' (or 'NETWORK') ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

Turn the cable-modem on, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a steady pattern.
Turn the router on, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a steady pattern.
On your computer, you should be able to access the Internet.

Also, look at the colour of the EIGHT wires at each of each Ethernet cable.
The order of the coloured wires should be IDENTICAL at both ends.

I've had a new laptop but require my security key, model WBMR-G54 to access the security enabled network, from my old laptop.


If you've forgotten the wireless security key you entered when you set up the router you can reset it by connecting to the router directly with an ethernet cable instead of the wi-fi. Plug a cable into the router and then laptop and access the setup page for the router. See the manual (or download one from the buffalo site) for setup instructions.

Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.
