There is a switch on the back of Buffalo routers that has the options for On, Off and Auto.
When using the router in router mode as the main router on the network you will want to keep this switch to on.
Off should be used if the router is going to be a repeater or a switch.
Auto should only be used with other Buffalo routers as a switch or router. The unit will auto sense what mode it needs to be in. If you use the Auto mode with the router and Buffalo is the main router sometimes it will not get a new IP address from the modem when using some cable providers such as Comcast. To fix that issue you would have to flip the switch to On and power cycle the unit and the router would be able to get online again.

Just get WHR-G300N V2 and trying to set up it as AP with the switch in position "OFF" and manual settings. This should the rather easy but no packets from Wireless go through to LAN and I don't know why. Ofc, I tried "Auto" magic but no magic happened. WHR-G300N V2 went between router and AP modes then end up not working at all.
