I am trying to set up Buffalo AirStation ( whr-hp-g54) as a wireless access point so that my Mac and iPhone can connect to it wirelessly. After setting up the router as a wireless access point, there is no network accessibility on my iPhone and Mac. I don't understand when I set up everything correctly then why my AirStation is not connecting to the internet. Any help would be much appreciated!
