Hello, I recently started a new job and my company uses a wireless "Buffalo" router for their internet. The only problem is that it seems heavily encrypted and I get an error every time it tries to connect... I have already done some troubleshooting options and went into the router to find "a password" to make the internet work (temporarily). The main problem with this is that the password is _64 characters long of random numbers and letters_, and I have been typing this in multiple times a day to get it to work... I type this password into "Network Diagnostics" because this seems to be the only way to get the internet to connect. The password actually doesn't work from just selecting the wireless network from the Airport drop-down menu and saving the password in Network settings doesn't seem to work either. It seems like when the computer goes to sleep or is turned off, it loses the password and the connection and I have to go through the whole process of entering in a 64 digit password over again (you can imagine how annoying this in itself is, but think about how many times this has failed from typos, yeah, soooo annoying).
Anyway, do you have any suggestions on how to hard-line the internet connection here? I probably just think I know what I'm doing but if you guys have some advice, I'd really appreciate the help.
There is no need to type the password again -n- again for connecting to Buffalo Router.Just go through these steps and get amazing internet -
1.Connect the ethernet cable from your jack to the rightmost ethernet port on the back of the router. This is the blue WAN port labeled "Internet". Next, take another ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Buffalo router. Finally, plug the AC adapter into the power port on the Buffalo router and plug it into the wall.
2. After plugging Buffalo router into the network, the power light will come on and the other status lights will flash. Once the leftmost diagnostic light labeled "Diag" has gone off and the light labeled "Router" has come on, this means your Buffalo router has been initialized and is connected to the network.
3.Now open a web browser window and enter 192.168.11.1 in the URL field and press enter. You will get a prompt to enter a username and password to access your Buffalo router settings. Enter "root" as the username and leave the password field blank. Next, click Login.
4.Click on the Admin Config and enter a name for your AirStation and click Apply. Wait for the router to restart with the new setting, you may have to refresh your browser window.
5.Click on the Password button under Admin Config. The Administrator name is saved as "root". Now choose an Administrator Password and enter it in the two fields provided and click Apply. Wait for the router to restart, and you will be prompted to log in with the username "root" and the new password you just set up.
6.Next click on the Wireless Config button> Wireless Config> Basic(11g). Make sure the box labeled Enable next to the Wireless Radio setting is checked. For the SSID setting, choose a name for your wireless network. You should write this name down and keep it near your wireless router in case you forget it. Click Apply.
7.Next click on the Security. For the Wireless Authentication setting, select WPA/WPA2 mixed mode - PSK. For the WPA-PSK field, choose a password and enter it here. Click Apply.
