Question about Buffalo Technology WHR-G54S Wireless Router (WHR2G54S)
I've been using a Buffalo WHR-G54S with my 2 meg Virgin Media broadband for about 18 months, and it's worked flawlessly up till now. About a week ago, my broadband was down due to a technical problem at Virgin's end which was fixed within a few hours, but since then I haven't been able to get the router to connect at all.
I can connect to the internet directly via the cable modem and an ethernet cable. My PC can connect to the router wirelessly and/or via an ethernet cable and access the router control panel with no problems.
When I run the automatic configuration from the control panel, the router finds the DCHP server but can't connect to it. I've re-booted the modem, router and computer, reset the router to its default settings, updated the router's firmware and tried leaving the entire setup switched off overnight as I've read that this can help, but nothing's worked.
I feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall here,. It's especially frustrating since the router's worked flawlessly for so long and now it's just died on me. If anybody has any ideas, I'd be really grateful.
Just to let you know if you havent solved it yet, i had this same problem today and i fixed it by pressing the reset butoon on the modem, this was after hours of trying to reset the router
