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.
Supports WDS
WDS bridging allows multiple units to operate in a bridged network for extended coverage.
Dual speed mode
Dual speed mode makes wireless transmission faster by using 2 channels, allowing 150 Mbps 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 the following security features:
• AOSS
• WPS
• WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES)
• WPA2-PSK(TKIP/AES)
• WPA/WPA2 mixed PSK
• WEP(128/64 bit)
• Privacy Separator
• MAC address access restriction
• Deny Any Connection/SSID stealth
• Web configuration interface with password
• Firewall with easy rules
Automatic Channel Selection
Monitors wireless interference and automatically assigns the clearest, best channel.

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.
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 7, Vista and XP. The use of other operating systems may require
that the AirStation be manually configured from a browser window.
150 Mbps High Speed Mode
150 Mbps is the link speed of WCR-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.

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.

Note: Encryption is disabled by default in Asia Pacific.
• Place your AirStation and wireless devices 2 - 10 feet apart.
• Restart your AirStation.
You forgot AirStation's SSID, Encryption Key, or
Password.
Hold down the Reset button (page 99) on your AirStation for 5 seconds to initialize its settings. All

The link speed is slower than 150 Mbps (Maximum
link speed is only 72Mbps).
By default, the AirStation’s 150 Mbps mode is not enabled. To enable it, use the following procedure:
1. Open the configuration interface of your AirStation (page 23).
2. Click [Wireless SSID & Channel (11n 150Mbps Mode)] in Easy Setup.
3. Change the value in [150 Mbps Mode] - [Band Width] to 40 MHz and click [Apply].
If you still cannot connect at 150 Mbps, check the settings of your wireless client device.

Other Tips
Issue:
I reset my wireless router to factory settings and forgot how to log in.
Answer:
Open your browser, enter 192.168.11.1 as the browser address, then press the Enter key. You will be
prompted to log in. Enter "root" for the username and leave the password box empty (no password).
Click [OK] to log in. 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 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
Basic tab. Buffalo recommends the use of WPA/WPA2 mixed for wireless encryption. The passphrase/
key should be at least 8 characters in length.
Issue:
How do I change my wireless router's broadcasted network name (SSID)?
Answer:
Log in to the wireless router with your browser. Navigate to Wireless Config - Basic. Find the SSID
setting. Select [Use] and enter the new name for your network. Click [Apply]. Once the wireless
router has rebooted, you will need reconnect any wireless clients to the AirStation using the new
network name. The encryption key will still be the same.

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
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.

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:
•Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
•Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC Caution:
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
