Buffalo AirStations are high power wireless routers designed for home or small office use. The routers claim to provide additional range and speed over other, low-power alternatives with fewer "dead spots" (areas without signal). Resetting your Buffalo AirStation returns the router to its factory settings; this is useful if you are selling the device or if you make a mistake you cannot undo during programming. All information added to the router since purchase is erased during a reset.

  1. 1

    Lift the Buffalo AirStation off its stand, if necessary, and look at the bottom of the router.

  2. 2

    Push the sharpened tip of the pencil into the small circular hole on the base of the router and hold it in place.

  3. 3

    Hold the pencil in place until the "Diag" LED glows on the side of the router and then remove it.

  4. 4

    Wait a few minutes while the router resets itself. Start reconfiguring the software once the process completes.
