Re: I Think My Wifi Modem Died !!!

Try changing the channels

Try setting up an Open network rather a Secured one..

the gateway it come with routher wifi your need to change the new gateway for example when u open 192.168.1.1 for the modem

and another gateway for router only, if it does not work then RMA it which it is cover with serial number

Re: I Think My Wifi Modem Died !!!

Try the 30-30-30 reset

After this process (a total of 90 seconds) is complete, your router should be restored to its factory default state. Note that your particular router may not require the full 30-30-30 procedure. For example, some routers can at times be hard reset after only 10 seconds and without power cycling.
Note that the router/modem router will forget everything incl internet settings, your wifi ssid, forwarded ports, wip or wpa passcodes/phrases and prolly turn off wifi and wont connect to internet!

You'll have to manually set it up again via an ethernet cable and turn on its wifi

Since you've already pressed the reset button(I'm assuming, the one in the recessed space, that has to be pressed with a pin or something)

It has already forgotten its internet and wifi settings so you have to connect to the router with an ethernet cable and set it up via the router's page(I think buffalo routers home page is 192.168.11.1)

If you dont know the settings, contact your ISP about the settings, they'll help you out!

Re: I Think My Wifi Modem Died !!!
