Inside a Buffalo Airstation

A guide to dismantling a Buffalo Airstation WLA-L11G. Unlike most other access points, the Airstation is designed to be taken apart, in order to fit an antenna cable. The manual that comes with the access point also contains some detail on how to dismantle the Airstation. So we are not going to go into great detail, just give you the pictures. The airstation case is unfortunately quite brittle, and will break if dropped. The Airstation below was dropped onto carpet from 3 feet - hence the missing fragment.


The first Step is to gently squeeze of the front and rear panels, then unscrew the feet, they come off very easily.


Now remove the two screws on the back of the airstation.


The case should now fall apart, showing the insides of the accesspoint..
