Question about Edimax BR-6114Wg Router (BR6114WG)

1 Answer

Does not bridge LAN and Wireless

This router does not seem to bridge the wireless and the wired local networks, so that broadcasts do not go through. That means that protocols like Bonjour/Zeroconf cannot work across machines which are wired and laptops which aren't. Or did I miss something ?

I do not want wireless router to assign ip addresses for lan

not sure if you are doing it right
your wireless router has 2 "sides" one is it's upload, it's wan network and that is where you should set DHCP - so that the router itself gets an ip from your LAN
other side is behind your wireless router and there DHCP should also be off. it would be best if you could put your router in bridged mode - just to extend your network over WIFI

I have a D-LINK DIR-655 in use. It was fully functioning up until yesterday when wireless suddenly stopped broadcasting. The wired connections all are functioning properly , but no laptop or other device...

Try resetting the router back to default settings. Press and hold the reset button for 10 secs. then release. After the reset, try accessing once again and check if you have the complete details on your wireles LAN section.

How do i set bridge mode?

Depends if you need a wireless or wired bridge?

Here is some info for you.

Infrastructure Mode

With a wireless Access Point, you can operate the wireless LAN in the infrastructure mode. This
mode provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network devices within a fixed range or
area of coverage, interacting with wireless nodes via an antenna.

In the infrastructure mode, the wireless access point converts airwave data into wired Ethernet
data, acting as a bridge between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple Access
Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further extend the wireless network coverage. As a
mobile computing device moves out of the range of one access point, it moves into the range of
another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point domain to another and
still maintain seamless network connection.

I have a westell adsl2t router and it is connected to my DI-624m wireless router and I just want to encrypt the connection to secure it.

open a browser from a computer that is connected to the router (preferably wired) and in the address bar, enter
the login is admin and the password is blank.
click WIRELESS on the left
you will then be on the wireless setup screen.
Enable the type of security you want, and the key or passphrase.
For instance, if you want something easy to remember, set the security to WEP and use your 10 digit phone number as the WEP key.
Change the SSID to something other than dlink while you're there.

That's all there is to it. Apply the changes and you're done!

If I shut down the computer hooked up to the Router, it will cease to broadcast a wireless signal. Its done this to me before, but I cannot remember how I fixed it so that the local network light stays...

Check if the wireless settings have been configured on the other computer that is wireless and remains on while the main computer is off. Once the main computer is off the local network light will go off(since it is hard wired to the modem) but the wireless light should stay and you should be able to get wireless connectivity on any other wireless device.

No lan broadcast

Are you talking about the wireless lan or wired LAN.

Not broadcasting

Try reconfiguring your wireless setting from your router. Create a new wireless network. The old setting may had been corrupted.

Setting Up the Netgear WGT624 as a bridge

Using 2 routers

You may use your wireless router as an Access Point:

1. Connect one of the LAN port of the Belkin to a LAN port on your Voyager. If the link light on both side are not coming on, try using a cross-over cable. Important: Do not connect anything to the WAN port of your Belkin.

2. Configure the LAN IP address of your Belkin in the same subnet as the Voyager. By example, if your Voyager has, you may give your Belkin

3. Disable the DHCP server on the Belkin since the Voyager most likely already has one.

4. Configure the Wireless parameter of your Belkin as you would normaly do.

Using this method, your wired and wireless devices will be able to communicate together since they will be on the same network and your Belkin will act as a bridge between the wired and wireless network.
