Doesn’t automatically power up when utility power is restored: Buffalo WLAE-AG300N Dual-Band Wireless-N Ethernet Converter Access Point and Bridge

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/19

I got myself two Buffalo WLAE-AG300N devices to function as a WiFi bridge (I couldn’t run an ethernet cable from A to B, but both devices there were wired).

Just found out that when you loose utility power, and it comes back up, then these devices do not automatically power up: you *have* to press the power button.

Installing SuSE 11.2 or higher: before the first reboot the CLI version of YaST looks horrible. Reboot or second CLI fixes it.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/19

Since SuSE 11.2, when installing then the CLI version of YaST looks horrible on the first (Ctrl-Alt-F1) console before you do your first reboot.


  1. Try one of the other consoles,
  2. Reboot once.

It still fails at SuSE 12.x.
