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

1 Answer

Can't connect I'm home on leave from Afghanistan and can't connect to the internet on my Buffalo Wireless router. The icon says "connected" and signal strength "excellent" but when I try to connect I get the error that says "cannot find server". I know it's probably just a setting on my laptop but I would really appreciate some help. Thanks Tyler

    I connected up my wbmr G54 and ran the wizard, LAN shows connected also wireless on another computer shows connected, but am unable to connect to internet. Could it be IP address problem if so how do I resolve. As in the buffalo manual I set the LAN to automatically obtain 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.

You should be up and running.

My router is not gettting connected with laptop. Its hsowing lmited connectivity problem eventhough the signal strength is excellent.


Sometimes the router does not issue an IP address to the laptop and you get this error message.
Right click on the wireless icon on the Task Bar and click on Repair. The router will issue a new IP address to your laptop and you will be able to get Internet connection.

How to change a nat key on a bufallo wireless router to leave it open so i can play my friends on fifa on ps3


Do you mean the network key? the NAT is just to "convert" the external IP to internal IPs. Meaning, you have on External or Public IP, through NAT makes the several internally assigned IPs (192.168....) go out to the internet as your External or Public IP.
You can't change that. What you can do is go to the wireless settings on the buffalo router and under wireless security setup (11g) click on NO encryption and you will have an open connection, but PLEASE keep in mind you are going to share your connection with EVERYBODY not just your friends.
A better solutions is give your friends the wireless key you have written under the Wireless Security Settings, so you are sure you are only sharing your connection with the people you trust.
I hope this helps.

Cannot get onto internet


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.

I wish to connect a WGT 624v3 wireless router to a laptop on Vist


Hello again! No problem at all, and thank you for the information. I'll do what I can to help.
If the plan is to make a wireless internet connection with the new laptop, I would usually split it into three stages:

1) Establish a wired connection to the internet
2) Connect wirelessly from the laptop
3) Secure the wireless connection

In this case it's worth trying to connect wirelessly straight away. This is because a wired connection seems to have been established already, with the old desktop.

So the first things to do are:
A) Make sure the router is connected to the modem;
B) Switch on the router and modem. There should be some comforting green lights displayed on the front of the router, including one that looks like a wireless beacon. That shows the wireless 'access point' in the router is functioning
C) Switch on the laptop. There may also be a switch on the laptop to enable the wireless connection: if so, switch it on.

When the laptop has fully booted up, see if there is a 'wireless networks' icon visible in the laptop screen Notification Area (bottom right). If not, try restarting the computer.

If there is an icon, floating the cursor over the icon may show a message saying 'wireless networks available' or similar. Click on the icon and your relative may see a screen with an option to 'view wireless networks', or similar (I'm an XP user, so hope you can interpret here). If so, one will be an unsecured connection - hers! She should be able to click to connect. I recommend being as close as possible to the router when first connecting.

If she cannot find her own network, or there is no icon to click, or the network has previously been secured - please let me/us know.

If everything works correctly the first time (!), your relative should now have an unsecured wireless connection to the internet. This is a good time to experiment with the placement of the router and the laptop, to ensure a good signal is received. However, it is NOT recommended to use an unsecured connection for long, and not at all for anything private. It is like leaving your personal information on the doorstep for all to read. A wired connection is, by contrast, secure.

If everything works to this point, I'm happy to help with securing the wireless connection. However, establishing any connection is the first step. So, please let me/us know if anything is not clear, or does not work as hoped. Good luck!
