If you have a mixed mode network,
with both 802.11b and 802.11g clients,
it’s recommended that you check 11g
protection to ensure that slower 11b clients
don’t hog all available bandwidth.
Choosing Auto for Wireless mode lets both
802.11b and 802.11g clients connect to the
network. If you would prefer to allow only
one or the other, you have those options as
Two different framebursting modes are
available. These can double throughput in
your network if all clients are conﬁ gured
to use them. 125* High Speed Mode is
an improved version of Framebursting
and is highly recommended if your clients
support it. If a framebursting mode is enabled and some of your clients don’t support it,
it simply won’t be used.
Reducing the Output Power below 100% will reduce the range of your router.

Buffalo recommends that you choose
the strongest form of encryption that’s
supported by all your client devices.
• WEP is a lot better than nothing, and
almost every wireless device ever made
• TKIP is slower than WEP but much more
• AES is the most secure of all, and the
quickest as well. Use it if you can.
Setting the key renewal period too short
can decrease network performance.
