I can unsuccesfully accomplish instructions such as:

"The recessed reset button, simply press and hold for a few seconds until the DIAG LED illuminates to reset the unit.". This implies that the unit must be turned on first, press and hold, and wait for the LED

Since my old settings required pubkey and password (not required with the defaults), I can see that I am unable to reset the box. The default should allow only some web interface, but my box still have SSH enabled, another thing to show the box is not reseted.

  1. How does the web-interface thing work?
  2. How to reset the buffalo?

Hard Reset WHR-G54 by holding RESET down while powering it on. Hold 30 seconds, then remove power.

Holding down the RESET while waiting 30 seconds or only hold down the RESET a while when powering it on? – user42572 Aug 18 '10 at 19:56
With the unit off hold the reset button in while you power up the router and continue to hold the reset button in for 30 seconds, then power it down again, Power up it should be reset. Power up, power down, use the power cord to do this. – Moab Aug 19 '10 at 14:56
