Installing Client Manager
Buffalo’s Client Manager software
lets you survey and connect to any
supported wireless networks. It
also allows for one touch setup and
configuration via AOSS.
To install Client Manager, click on
Install Client Manager and follow the
wizard through the setup.
Click on Exit Setup to exit AirNavigator.
Client Manager is now installed and
running. Double-click on its icon (the
black antenna) to use it.
Using Client Manager to Connect to Your Wireless Network
If your router/AP supports AOSS, you can
set up your wireless network by pushing
two buttons. Turn to the next page.
Alternatively, you can set up your wireless
connections manually:
• Click the Scan tab in Client Manager.
It will show you a list of available
• Choose the network you want to connect
to and click Connect.
• If the chosen wireless network is
encrypted, select the Encryption Method,
enter one or more encryption keys, and
click Connect.
Note: If you only have one encryption key,
enter it in the first (#1) field.
Using AOSS to Connect to Your Network
AOSS (AirStation One-Touch Secure System) is a simple way to connect
wireless clients to a wireless router or access point while enforcing the most
secure encryption possible. Users no longer need to worry about choosing the
proper security protocols, IP addresses, or SSID. AOSS determines the optimal
connection and configures itself in seconds. Once AOSS has been setup, your
other devices will need to be connected to the wireless network by performing
AOSS or by manually adding the device to the wireless network. Please consult
the user manual that came with your AOSS Wireless Router or Access Point to
retrieve the necessary connection information.
The AOSS button for the WLI-PCI-G300N is in its
Client Manager software, which you installed on
page 6. Start Client Manager by right clicking on
the black antenna icon in your System Tray, or
by launching the Client Manager from your Start
Menu: Programs >> Buffalo >> AirStation Utility >>
Client Manager.
Using AOSS
• From the Status Screen, select the Profiles tab.
• Click the blue AOSS button on the Client Manager’s screen. The AOSS wizard
will appear.
• Now, press the AOSS button on the Access Point. Hold it down until the
AOSS LED begins to flash.
Using AOSS
Once AOSS is complete (about 30 seconds), the connection is archived as a profile for later use.
To minimize Client Manager to the system tray, click the ‘X’ in the top right corner.
AOSS will scan for an AOSS partner for about two minutes. If it times out before finding one, just
press the AOSS buttons again.
Output power is reduced to 25% of normal during AOSS for security reasons. If you’re having
trouble making an AOSS connection, temporarily move the devices closer together.
AOSS will automatically use the highest level of security available for all currently connected
wireless devices.
If you have trouble connecting with AOSS, temporarily disable all personal firewalls on your PC,
such as ZoneAlarm or Microsoft Personal Firewall. These programs may be re-enabled after
AOSS has finished.
