1. Introduction
1.1. Welcome
This AirStation wireless router comes with two different firmware
packages. You may use either the dd-wrt-based Professional firmware or
the simple User-friendly firmware. By default, the Professional
firmware is preinstalled for US/EU products, and the User-friendly
firmware is preinstalled for Asia-Pacific products.
1.2. Device Configuration
From the factory, the router is configured as a network bridge. That
means that all network interfaces can communicate with each other
using this default bridge. The router is ready to use with a few
simple adjustments.
1.2.1.
Factory Settings
Because all interfaces are attached to the bridge by default, they all
have the same IP configuration:
IP address
Subnet Mask
DHCP server
DHCP-Range
192.168.11.1
255.255.255.0
enabled
192.168.11.2 - 66
The Wireless LAN interface is activated by default with an SSID
generated from the device’s MAC address. For security, unused
interfaces should be disabled. Wireless LAN interfaces that are not
disabled should be configured with secure encryption (WPA2 or WPA is
recommended) and a secure password.
1.2.2.
Initial Operation
Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet LAN cable and
power the router on. It will take about 30 seconds to boot. You can
then access it via telnet or web browser at the IP address
192.168.11.1. The DHCP server in the router is enabled by default. If
your PC’s Ethernet is configured for DHCP it should receive an IP
address from the router’s DHCP server. If not, please configure the
Ethernet interface with an address from the 192.168.11.x subnet.
Because all relevant settings can be made using the web interface,
this manual refers to configuration via the web GUI only.
-3-
2.
Configuration via the Web Interface
The router contains an integrated web server that provides an easy to
use web interface. It allows configuration, administration, and status
checking in a simple but effective way.
When accessing the web GUI for the first time, change the default
username and password. By default, the router’s status page can be
accessed without authentication, but this can be disabled.
The web interface was successfully tested on the following browsers:
- Internet Explorer 7.x and newer versions
- Firefox 2.x and newer versions
- Safari 2.x and newer versions
2.1. Preparation
Connect your PC to the router and power the router on as described in
1.2.2. After the router has loaded its operating system, you can
communicate with it via your LAN network interface.
The easiest way to test if your PC can communicate with the router is
to ping 192.168.11.1.
2.2. Web Interface Access
Open a browser window. Enter the address http://192.168.11.1 into the
address bar. The status page will be displayed.
When you click on a tab, the login window will pop up.

Setup
2.3.1.1.
Basic Configuration
Setup Assistant
The setup assistant provides a step-by-step interface for basic router
configuration. This configures most common settings automatically.
WAN Setup
Here you’ll find the most important settings to configure your
internet access and WAN port. DHCP is enabled by default, but you can
also use PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP, static IP, or HeartBeat Signal. If you
don’t use a password to log in to your ISP, you may need to enter
“0000” for the password. Also, for some ISPs you should not enter the
service name, as it will prevent establishing the connection. If you
experience connection problems, then leave the service name empty.
WAN Connection Type
Description
Disabled
The WAN port is disabled.
Static IP
A static IP address will be used – enter the
IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and server
manually.
Automatic
Configuration - DHCP
The router obtains its WAN-side IP address
from a DHCP server.
PPPoE

the “VDSL-Tagging“ box.
PPTP
Establishes connection via PPTP.
L2TP
Establishes connection via L2TP.
HeartBeat Signal
If you use a HeartBeat connection, consult
your ISP for setup information. HeartBeat
Signal is used only in Australia.
3G/UMTS
Configures Internet Access via 3G/UMTS.
Enable USB in the “Services” section and
attach a 3g/UMTS USB stick to the router.
For VDSL, check
Network Setup
Network Setup configures the router’s basic settings to match the
local network. By default these settings are valid for all network
ports except the WAN because they are all attached to the default
bridge. If ports are disassociated from the bridge they will have
different settings.
2.3.1.2.
Dynamic DNS (DynDNS or DDNS)
Dynamic DNS allows the assignment of a DNS record to a dynamically
assigned WAN-side IP address. A DynDNS client updates DNS records when
your WAN-side IP address changes.
The router’s firmware offers presets for the most common DynDNS
services plus an option to define individual settings.

Bridging
By default, one bridge (br0) is defined and active. In this section
you can define additional bridges and change the interface assignment
according to your requirements.
Bonding
-7-
Bonding offers the ability to “bond” interfaces together. Bonding can
be used to enhance throughput or provide failover capabilities.
Port Setup
The port setup section allows further configuration of the routers
network interfaces. Network interfaces can be separated from the
bridge and it is possible to assign separate network settings for each
interface. If an interface is separated from the bridge, add routing
rules to allow communication between the interface and the bridge or
other unbridged interfaces.
DHCPD
Besides the default DHCP server, you can define additional DHCP
servers.
2.3.1.6.
EoIP Tunnel
EoIP (Ethernet over IP) tunnels can transport Ethernet data packages
via a tunnel over existing IP connections. You can define up to 10
tunnels that can also be bonded.
2.3.2.
Wireless
2.3.2.1.
Basic Settings
Each Wireless LAN interface has its own section in the wireless basic
settings screen. The wireless interfaces are labelled ath0 and ath0.1
– ath0.4 depending on the number of radios installed. To correctly
identify the antenna connectors, please compare the MAC addresses
printed on the enclosure with the addresses displayed in the web
interface.

Channel Width
Some wireless network modes support wireless channel widths besides
the standard 20 MHz. 802.11g & 802.11n offer the option to use 40 MHz
channels for enhanced throughput. Both the AP and the client must
support 40 MHz channels to use them.
Wireless Channel (AP only)
Set the desired wireless channel, or let the router choose a free
channel automatically. If the router is in classic WDS (MAC address
based) mode, then the wireless channel must be selected manually.
Wireless Network Name (SSID)
The name of the wireless network the radio transmits or connects to
(depending on the wireless mode)

AOSS/WPS
AOSS (AirStation One-touch Secure Setup) is Buffalo Technology’s
system to automatically connect wireless clients to an access point.
Just press the button on the AirStation, then press the button for the
wireless client (which might be in its software). AOSS will connect
the wireless devices automatically. AOSS is recommended if all of your
wireless devices support it. AOSS can only be used in AP mode.
The WPS is a standard created by the Wi-Fi Alliance. There are two
methods of configuration, PBC and PIN. PBC is similar to AOSS. PIN
uses a unique PIN code to register the wireless client to the
AirStation. If your wireless devices support it, WPS makes
configuration simple and automatic.
Enable AOSS
Enables the AOSS Service. When disabled, AOSS cannot be used.
Start AOSS Negotiation
To initiate AOSS, either click the AOSS button in the GUI or hold down
the AOSS button on the front of the router for 3 seconds.
Security Modes
You may choose which security modes are offered in the AOSS
negotiation process. The use of WEP in general is not recommended due
to security concerns.
WPS Button
Enables the WPS button. When disabled, WPS button cannot be used.
WPS PIN
Enter the PIN code printed on your client device or your client
authentication application.

Aside from enabling and disabling the firewall, you can also set
additional filters, block certain network requests for the WAN
interface, and manage logs.
2.3.4.2.
VPN Pass-through
VPN settings effect how the firewall handles IPSec, PPTP, and L2TP
connections. By default, pass-through is enabled. Please note that
disabling pass-through will usually prevent you from establishing VPN
connections from computers located in your local network to VPN
servers on the internet.
2.3.5.
Access Restrictions
2.3.5.1.
WAN Access
The WAN access settings allow the definition of time and service
related access rules.
2.3.6.
NAT / QoS
2.3.6.1.
Port Forwarding
Port forwarding allows the assigning of WAN ports to specific internal
IP addresses and matching ports. Bidirectional external traffic can be
- 14 -
forwarded to specific internal devices and computers. Each port
forwarding entry defines a source port and a target IP address.
Before adding or removing a port forwarding entry, save all changed
settings. Any changes not saved will be lost when a port forwarding
entry is added or deleted.
2.3.6.2.
Port Range Forwarding
Port range forwarding works similarly to port forwarding. Unlike port
forwarding, instead of a single port, a range of ports is forwarded to
the same range of ports at the internal target IP address.
2.3.6.3.
Port Triggering
Port triggering is a kind of port range forwarding where outgoing
traffic on specific ports enables previously defined port forwards for
the activating device. This temporarily opens required ports when
specific applications are opened on computers on the LAN. This offers
a greater level of security than port forwarding or port range
forwarding because the ports are only opened when needed.
2.3.6.4.
UPnP
UPnP allows UPnP capable applications and devices to open and close
required ports automatically as needed. This is simple to use and does
not require further configuration steps.
2.3.6.5.
DMZ
A DMZ computer is a special computer in the internal network that gets
all incoming traffic forwarded. The task of that computer is managing
this traffic. When the DMZ feature is activated the internal firewall
is activated. This can pose a security issue if not handled with care.
Furthermore, several services of the router, that have to be
accessible from the WAN side, will not work because the associated
traffic is forwarded to the DMZ computer.
2.3.6.6.
QoS
QoS (Quality of Service) is a procedure to prioritise network traffic
by application. Specific services can be assigned specific bandwidth.
Aside from upstream and downstream bandwidth, you can define settings
for specific services and IP and MAC address ranges.
2.3.7.

Before using Telnet or SSH, activate the associated service(s) in this
section.
2.3.7.2.
Keep Alive
Keep-Alive lets you configure monitoring options that automatically
reboot the router if a service malfunction causes it to fail to
respond.
2.3.7.3.
Commands
Entering Linux commands is one of the most powerful ways to access the
router’s functionality. This enables you to access services and
configure options that are not accessible via the Web GUI. Using shell
commands can lead to unexpected results. Use them with utmost care.
Aside from executing the shell commands directly you can also save
custom start up and firewall scripts.
2.3.7.4.
WOL
With Wake-on-LAN, you can send special data packets to compatible
devices on your LAN, causing them to exit sleep mode.
WOL data packets can be triggered manually or scheduled automatically.
2.3.7.5.
Factory Defaults
With this feature you can reset the router’s settings to factory
defaults. After a reset, the router will restart.
2.3.7.6.
Firmware Upgrade
The firmware upgrade option can be used to install a different
firmware version. When doing this you can choose if the router’s
settings will be restored to factory defaults or kept.
2.3.7.7.
Backup
You can use this feature to store your current configuration into a
backup file, or to restore from a previously stored configuration.
This also makes it simple to set up a number of routers with the exact
same configuration.

Use Cases
The following use cases relate to the most commonly used router
configurations. The related router configuration is explained step by
step.
3.1. Access Point
Access Point (AP, sometimes also called “Infrastructure Mode”) is the
mode where the router is also the central wireless hub that connects
to the LAN and provides access to wireless devices. These wireless
clients of the AP can communicate with each other and with wired
devices on the network such as the Internet.
Connect your computer to the router as described in 2.1. and access
the web interface according to 2.2.

If you’re running a DHCP server in your LAN, connected wireless
devices will get their IP addresses from the server.
3.2. Wireless Client
The router can be also used as a wireless LAN client. This can be
useful if you want to connect devices to your wireless LAN that do not
have a wireless LAN interface. In this configuration, the wireless LAN
interface acts as a wireless client. Attached wired Ethernet devices
can also access the WAN through the wireless connection.
Setup -> Basic Setup
 WAN Setup
o Set “Connection Type“ to “DHCP” to have the AirStation get its IP
address from a DHCP server, or to a “Static IP“ if no DHCP server
is available.
 Network Setup
o Enter the desired LAN-side IP address for the router in “Router
IP“.
o Set the “DHCP Type“ to “DHCP Server“ (this is the default setting).
o “Enable” “DHCP Server“ (this is the default setting).
o Adjust the DHCP address range to match your requirements.

o Choose your time zone.
 Click “Save“.
Wireless -> Basic Settings
 Enter your country in “Regulatory Domain”
 In the “Antenna Gain“ field, please enter the gain of your
AirStation’s antenna. The firmware will adjust the transmit power
automatically to meet regulatory requirements. Please note that the
use of a long extension cable for your antenna will reduce the
usable antenna gain.
 Configure “Wireless Mode“ to “Client“.
 Configure “Wireless Network Mode” to match the capabilities of the
access point you want to connect to.
 Enter the network name (SSID) of the AP you want to connect to into
“Wireless Network Name (SSID)”.
 Click “Save“.
Wireless -> Wireless Security
 Configure the security mode to match the security settings of the
access point you want to connect to.
 Click “Apply Settings“.
After the router reboots, please confirm that it has connected to the
access point. If there is a DHCP server available on the access point
side, and the router is configured to request an IP address, then it
should receive an IP address for its WAN-side interface.
You can now either connect wired clients to the access point or
configure another wireless network interface as an access point to
grant access to wireless clients.
3.3. Wireless Client Bridge
A wireless client bridge offers the ability to transparently integrate
the router’s LAN into a different LAN that another access point is
connected to. Clients connected to such a router can access devices in
both LANs and vice versa. In that configuration the router’s WAN
interface is disabled.
- 21 -
Setup -> Basic Setup
 WAN Setup
o Choose “Disabled” for “Connection Type” (this will be set
automatically).

After the router reboots, please confirm that it has connected to the
access point. If there is a DHCP server available on the access point
- 22 -
side, a pc in the router’s LAN configured to request an address from
DHCP should receive an IP address.
3.4. FTP Server
The router can be used as an FTP server when a USB disk (such as a
hard disk or flash memory device) is connected to the USB port on the
rear of the router.

GPL Statement
The firmware that is used in this product includes software that is
subject to the GNU Public Licence (GPL)/the GNU Lesser Public Licence
(LGPL). To the extent that it is applicable within the context of the
GPL and the LGPL, the conditions of the GPL and the LGPL, as well as
the relevant source codes, are available from the manufacturer. The
code underlying the GPL/LGPL for the software shall be provided,
without any ensuing warranty or liability claims. Please see the
conditions of the GPL/LGPL for further details.
4.1. GNU General Public License
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin
Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
license document, but changing it is not allowed.
4.1.1.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom
to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License
is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.
Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have
the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this
service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if
you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in
new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if
you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
- 27 -
software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on,
we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original,
so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the
original authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents.
We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent
must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.
4.1.2.
GNU General Public License – Terms and Conditions or Copying,
Distribution and Modification
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a
notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program
(independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that
is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source
code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously
and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice
and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other
recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the
Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of
it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute
such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above,
provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
- 28 -
thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties
under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use
in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement
including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is
no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that
users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling
the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the
Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an
announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print
an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1
and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years,
to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable
copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed
only for non-commercial distribution and only if you received the
program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in
accord with Subsection b above.)
- 29 -
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
- 30 -
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new
versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
"any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a
version number of this License, you may choose any version ever
published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the
author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by
the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation;
we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by
the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our
free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software
generally.
4.1.3.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
- 31 -
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES.

firmware is preinstalled for US/EU products, and the User-friendly firmware is preinstalled for AsiaPacific products. Turn to page 19 for instructions on switching between the two firmware packages.
Note: Most of this manual documents the user-friendly version of the firmware. For more
information on the dd-wrt-based professional firmware, consult the help files in its webbased configuration interface or the WZR-HP-AG300H User Manual for Professional Firmware,
available for download from Buffalo Technology.

Chapter 1 Product Overview
Air Navigator CD Requirements
The AirStation wireless router and access point works with most wired and wireless devices.
However, the automatic installation program on the CD requires a connected Windows 7, Vista or
XP computer to run. If you use the AirStation with a different operating system, you will have to
configure your network settings manually from a browser window.
300 Mbps High Speed Mode
300 Mbps is the link speed when using Wireless-N mode. It represents actual wireless data speeds,
including overhead. Because the overhead is not available for user data transfer, usable wireless
throughput will be substantially slower.

Parameter
Meaning
Wireless encryption
You may use any of the following types of encryption:
No encryption
Data is transmitted without encryption. With this setting, anyone
within range can connect to your wireless network and might
be able to access data on the network. Not recommended for
anyone with private data that needs to be kept secure. [No
encryption] can be selected only when [No authentication] is
selected for wireless authentication.
WEP
WEP is a common encryption method supported by most
devices. WEP can only be selected when wireless authentication
is set to [No authentication]. Note that WEP’s encryption is weak,
and networks protected with WEP are not much more secure
than those with no encryption at all. Not recommended for
anyone with private data that needs to be kept secure.
TKIP
TKIP is an encryption method which is more secure than WEP, but
slower. Use an pre-shared-key to communicate with a wireless
device.
TKIP can be selected only when WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK is selected
for Wireless authentication.
AES
AES is more secure than TKIP, and faster. Use a pre-shared-key to
communicate with a wireless device.
AES can be selected only when WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK is selected
for wireless authentication.
TKIP/AES mixed mode
TKIP/AES mixed mode allows both TKIP and AES authentication
and communication. This is no more secure than TKIP alone, but
more convenient for some users. TKIP/AES mixed mode can be
selected only when WPA/WPA2 mixed mode - PSK is selected for
wireless authentication.
WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
A pre-shared key or passphrase is the password for your wireless
connections. There are two different formats for a pre-shared
key. Use 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters (case-sensitive) for an ASCII
passphrase, or use 64 alphanumeric characters (0 to 9 and a to f, not casesensitive) for a hexadecimal passphrase.

Priority
The following priorities may be applied to individual
transmission packets: (Highest) 8, (High) 4, (Normal) 2, and
(Low) 1. From the queue, these packets are processed in order of
priority.
CWmin, CWmax
The maximum and minimum value of the contention window.
The contention window is used in the frame collision avoidance
structure performed in IEEE802.11, and generally, the smaller the
value in the window, the higher the probability that the queue
obtains the right to send.
AIFSN
The interval to send frames. The unit of the AIFSN is a slot, just as
the window defined by CWmin and CWmax is. The smaller the
interval of sending frames, the faster the algorithm can restart.
As a result, the priority of the queue is higher.
TXOP Limit
The period of time that the queue can use after obtaining the
right to send. The unit is 32 ms. The longer this time, the more
frames can be sent per right to send. However, the queue may
interfere with other packet transmissions. If TXOP Limit is set to 0
(zero), only one frame can be sent per right to send.
Admission Control
Restricts new frames from interfering with a previous queue. New
packets are prioritized lower until a queue of them is collected. As
the new queue accumulates more packets, its priority increases.

Issue:
What can I do if my wireless connection drops randomly or seems slow?
Answer:
There are many environmental factors that may cause this. First, ensure the issue is not range
related by moving the wireless router and the client device closer together. If the connection drops
continue, then range is probably not the issue.
Other 2.4 GHz devices such as microwaves, other wireless networks, and 2.4 GHz wireless phones
may impact performance. Try a different wireless channel for your wireless router. Log in to the
wireless router with your browser. Click on the Wireless Config tab and then the Basic tab. Wireless
channels from 1 - 11 may be selected. Try the Auto-Channel option if available. Otherwise, manually
select an alternate channel and click [Apply].
Issue:
Though I am able to successfully make a connection with my wireless router, I am unable to access
the Internet with my web browser.
Answer:
First, power off the Cable or DSL modem, the wireless router, and your computer. Move the router's
mode switch to the on position. Verify that the modem is connected to the wireless router with an
Ethernet cable to the WAN port. Power on the modem and wait one minute. Power on the wireless
router and wait another minute. Power on the computer. Open a browser on the computer and
navigate to a familiar website to verify whether the Internet connection is functioning normally.
If after these steps, an Internet connection is still unavailable, power off the Cable or DSL modem
and computer again and directly connect your computer to the Cable or DSL modem with a cable
between the computer and the port on the modem. Power on the modem and wait one minute.
Power on the computer and again check for an Internet connection.
If an Internet connection IS NOT available with a direct connection to the computer, please call the
Internet Service Provider who installed the modem.
If an Internet connection IS available with a direct connection to the computer, please call our
customer support.

pt3, disk4_pt4.
• If shared folder names, work group names, or file names contain any of the following characters,
you may not access data or manipulate files on the AirStation properly. In such a case, use a
different character.
• If a file created on a Macintosh contains any of the following characters, it will not be displayed
correctly under Windows OS. Also, you cannot copy or properly display a file when connecting via
SMB from Mac OS X if it contains any of these characters:
? [ ] / \ = + < > ; : ”, | *
• Cancelling or aborting a file copy may leave the file incomplete, and you may no longer be able
to delete the incomplete file. This can also happen during a power outage or if the LAN cable is
suddenly disconnected. If it happens, restart the AirStation, delete the file, and try copying the file
again.
• Use the same username and password for the AirStation as the user’s Windows login. If they
are different, the user may not be able to access shared folders with access restrictions on the
AirStation.
• Date and time stamps stored on the USB hard drive may be updated by the OS accessing the
