Hi, The buffalo Airstation G54 wireless is not working. When connecting to the ethernet port the laptop works. With wireless it does not go to internet. Looks to me the wireless is not working.
Please assist how to diagnose.
Re: Buffalo Airstation G54 wireless is not working
Connect your computer straight to your internet modem.
If it works then connect the router after reset.... read the manual..if it does not work then return your router and get a new one or simply buy netgear..has been working for me Without problems for 4 years other than two years ago got fried due to electrical over charge

By default, the firewall on it should block all incoming connections from the WAN or internet network port (good thing). Make sure you do two things : 1. Change the default password on the router, and 2. secure your wireless using WPA2 for authentication and AES or TKIP for encryption. Also, rename your SSID to something that doesn't give away that fact that your router is a buffalo. I'm paranoid, so I donot broadcast my SSID...if you are too, then this is a good option.
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.

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.
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,

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.
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.
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
