Airstation Ethernet Converter config
« on: November 20, 2008, 11:01:17 am »
   

Hi All,

 

I recently purchased a Buffalo 11mps Wireless ethernet media converter from ebay. When it arrived i found that the CD was snapped and i cant for the life of me find the Converter Manager that i need to configure the device.

 

Model Number is: WLI-T1-S11G

 

Does anybody know how you configure this manually? Or where i could download the drivers / install CD?

 

I have downloaded a version for the Airstation Turbo G but it doesnt recognise that i have a ethernet converter plugged in!! Sooooo frustrating!

 

TIA 


Paul

  • Plug the computer directly into the back of the Ethernet Converter and Initialise it. Do not have it plugged into the router.

 

  • Change the IP address of the computer to 1.1.1.2 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and no Default Gateway.  How-to Set a Static IP

 

  • Open a web browser and enter http://1.1.1.1 into the address bar to log in and configure the Ethernet Converter.

  • You may need to powercycle the device (unplug it and plug it back in) to get a valid connection.

Hi mate,

 

managed to get into the settings however, i didnt see a search button on the advanced settings?

 

I tried to enter the details manually, however it will only let me select WEP encryption, and my network is WPA.

 

Help! :-)

Try to update the firmware, also this is based off of the US version.
