What IP address is your PC receiving?
To check the IP address of the computer, go to 'Start'->'Run' then type 'command.com' and 'Click' OK. Now that you are in the command prompt type: ipconfig then hit enter. You should see something like this:
Windows 2000 IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : local.BuffaloTech.com IP Address.. . . . . .: 192.168.11.2
Subnet Mask . . . . . .. . . . . . .. . . .: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . . .. . . : 126.96.36.199
In this example the IP address is 192.168.11.2
Also please be sure your PC is connected directly to the router via ethernet cable when doing this.

I have the same problem!
I can not log in to the buffalo webinterface via 192.168.11.1
When I check the IP of my computer it is completely different from what the previous post is looking like (the IP is somthing like that: 188.8.131.52). Also I can not ping the 192.168.11.1
I have a Japanese Airstation WHR-HP-G54
During the installatio of the airstation I had a lot of problems in getting connection to the internet, but somehow I solved the problem though I don't know to which settings I changed the airstation.
Is there a way to reach the web interface for setting up my wirless? I don't like to reset it.

Thanks for the quick response!
I already checked the switch, it is in Router mode. Also I checked to reach the IP: 192.168.11.100, also no success.
What makes me wonder is, that I can connect to the internet without any problem.

If your IP is 184.108.40.206, then the router is in Brigde mode or your computer is not plugged in right...
-Make sure that your Internet Modem is plugged into the WAN port on the router (the port closest to the power)
-Then plug your computer into one of the 4 grouped LAN ports
-Flip the switch to BRI then back to AUTO and press the INIT button next to it, with a pen or paper clip until the red -DIAG light starts to flash.
-Reboot your comp
Now check your IP and report back!
If it is the same...
Then go to your Control Panel and Network Connections> Right Click Local Area Connection> Select Properties
Highlight internet protocol and select Properties
What is selected in here?

Thanks for the great answers!#
I could connect to the aristations webinterface by following this instructions from the buffalo knowledge base: KB#000018 - Access Point
It seems that I have changed my airstation to Access Point mode (but the switch on the bottom of the router is still in router position, also the PC LAN-Cable and Internet-LAN-Cable are in the right slots).
I can connect to the internet via the airstation with multiple PC´s and my Linkstation, but now I have problems in using some functions of my Linkstation. The NAS navigator can not find it and the bit torrent client is not working. Nevertheless I can access it by entering the IP and via the Web Interface.
Am I right that my router is in Access Point mode and what does it mean (what are the restrictions, etc.)?
Can I use all functions of my linkstation by using the access point and how (what has to be adjusted) or do I need to change the router mode?
Here are my settings (IP and Linkstation, in German unfortunately):

You would need to check the settings of the router to find out how it is setup. If your modem is plugged into the WAN port and your comp and LS are plugged into a LAN port and your comp is pulling a public IP address, then most likely the router is in Bridge mode or just not sending DHCP.
To access the unit...
Your comp and LS have to be on the same "Network" meaning the same subnet (or IP range).
For example, if your computers IP address is 192.168.11.X, then the LS needs to be 192.168.11.Y in order for them to communicate.

They have not the same IP subnet. I guess they got a public IP because my Router is in Access Point mode.
I give up for now. At least I can use my devices minimum functions (accessing each other and the internet). But on the weekend a Japanese friend will come and help me in setting the Airstation correctly. It is a bummer that I can not change the Japanese firmware to English ....
