router configuration woes

Hi everyone, new here. I've just got a buffalo airstation WZR-1750HP and i cannot for the life of me configure it for internet access. I have entered my isp username/password but still no joy. I must admit i'm utterly hopeless with networking, but not bad with other computer matters. Hoping some wireless whizz kids can tell me what my settings must be.

Dual band AC routers can be tricky as they sometimes are not compatible with older wireless N clients.

Best to upgrade any wireless n NIC's to AC NIC's if they can't connect consistently.

Also depends on if there are any other routers in the network, or if the modem is a modem/router or just stand alone modem, not enough information here for me to give directions.

it's just an upgrade for an old netgear router. My netgear is an adsl router/modem. Does this help. Lappy is quite new Acer Inspire v3-571G.
