WBMR-HP-GN Fails to Connect to Internet
« on: October 23, 2009, 08:40:59 pm »
   

Gday everyone, I was having a problem getting my new WBMR-HP-GN to connect to the internet. In the end it was a pretty simple fix so i thought i'd write it here in case you're having the same problem.

 

I am using PPPoE and the solution was to leave "Service Name" and "Host Name" blank in the Internet/LAN settings. Easy, but annoying that writing eg the name of my ISP in there stopped it all from working...

Thanks a lot for sharing that fix for us.  I'll be throwing that into the solved section so hopefully you can save a few headaches.

This is actually in the knowledge base/FAQs of the Buffalotech UK support website. It also applies to the WBMRs sold in India and Australia.
