Chapter 1
Product Overview
Features
Supports IEEE802.11n and IEEE802.11b/g
With support for Wireless-N, Wireless-G, and Wireless-B standards, the AirStation can transfer data
to and from all standard 2.4 GHz wireless clients. (WHR-HP-GN is compatible with some Wireless-N
features.)
Dual speed mode
Dual speed mode makes wireless transmission faster by using 2 channels, allowing 300Mbps for
WHR-HP-G300N and 150Mbps for WHR-HP-GN data transmission.
Support AOSS and WPS
Both AOSS (AirStation One-touch Secure System) and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) are supported.
These automatic connection standards make connection with compatable wireless devices easier.
Security Features
The AirStation is equipped with following security features:
• AOSS
• WPS
• WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES)
• WPA2-PSK(TKIP/AES)
• WPA/WPA2 mixed PSK
• WEP(128/64bit)
• Privacy Separator
• MAC address access restriction
• Deny Any Connection/SSID stealth feature
• Setting screen with password
• Firewall feature with easy rules
Automatic Channel Selection
Monitors wireless interference and automatically assigns the clearest, best channel.
Roaming
You can use multiple AirStations to cover a large area. Wireless clients can automatically switch
AirStations for the best signal.

Chapter 1 Product Overview
Initialization
To restore settings back to the factory defaults, hold down the Reset button on the bottom of the
unit.
Browser Based Administration
This unit can be easily configured from a web browser on your computer.
Auto Mode (Router/Bridge Automatic Recognition)
Auto mode detects whether your network has a router or not and automatically switches to the
appropriate router or bridge mode. You can also manually switch between modes. (See page 10).
Air Navigator CD Requirements
The AirStation wireless router and access point works with most wired and wireless devices. The
automatic installation program on the CD requires Windows 7, Vista or XP to run. Client Manager
software is included for Windows Vista and XP. The use of other operating systems may require that
the AirStation be manually configured from a browser window.
300/150 Mbps High Speed Mode
300 Mbps is the link speed of WHR-HP-G300N and 150 Mbps is for WHR-HP-GN 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.

WMM-EDCA Parameters
You don't usually need to change these settings. Using the default
settings is recommended.
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 que 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.

Other Tips
Issue:
I reset my wireless router to factory settings and forgot how to log in.
Answer:
Open your browser and enter 192.168.11.1 as the browser address and hit Enter. You will be
prompted to log in. Enter the user name as root and the password box is left empty (no password).
Click "OK" to complete the login and the option to reset your password will be available on the first
page.
Issue:
How do I forward ports on my wireless router for my gaming console?
Answer:
Log in to the router. From the home page, go to the Internet Game/ Port Mapping section. Enter the
port that needs to be forwarded, and the IP address of the gaming console.
Issue:
How do I enable or modify security encryption settings on the wireless router?
Answer:
Log in to the wireless router with your browser. Go to the Wireless Config tab and then select the
Security tab. Buffalo recommends the use of WPA for wireless encryption. The passphrase/key
should be at least 8 characters in length.

Chapter 6 Trouble Shooting
Issue:
How do I change my wireless router's broadcasted network name (SSID)?
Answer:
Log in to the wireless router with your browser. Go to the Wireless Config tab and then select the
Basic tab if necessary. Find the settings area called SSID. Select the "Use" radio button and enter the
name you wish to use for your network in the text field provided. Click "Apply" to save the settings.
Once the wireless router has rebooted, you will need to manually select the new network name for
all wireless devices and enter your encryption key if necessary.
Issue:
What can I do if my wireless connection drops randomly or seems slow?
Answer:
There are many environmental factors that may affect this behavior. First, ensure the issue is not
range related by locating the wireless router and the device dropping connection in closer proximity
and check whether the connection drops continue.
In some cases, interference from other wireless networks or sources such as 2.4 GHz wireless phones
may impact performance. To work around this scenario, change the wireless channel used by your
wireless router.
Log in to the wireless router with your browser. Click on the Wireless Config tab and then the Basic
tab. The Wireless Channel setting can be selected from channels 1 to 11. If an Auto-Channel option
is available, attempt to use this option to remedy the problem. If Auto-Channel is unavailable,
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
WHR-HP-GN / WHR-HP-G300N User Manual
87
Chapter 6 Trouble Shooting
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.
