you will have to open up your network connections

click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red X or a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ?
you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question mark? right click install drivers
the driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider
or the motherboard disc or you might download one if you dont have on a disk

Make sure you Ethernet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its enabledi


if still no joy
click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode

type in ipconfig press enter

you will see all of your internet connection details


or type in your default gateway adress into your internet search should read something like 10.0.0.138 to get an inertnet connection

hope this helps you

Acer 5100 will not connect to wireless


Things to Check:
1. Please check if the wireless switch on your laptop is ON?
2. Are you able to see your wireless network in the list of connections?

If the answer for both of the above is yes, then Turn OFF & Turn ON the Modem/Router.

Please delete all the connections that are stored on your laptop's wireless settings/Wireless connections and retry connecting to your network.

On your modem/router, please remove any security passwords and make the network accessible by any one any try connecting to the network.If the connection is successful, then reprogram the modem / router with a password.

Another easy fix to find if the fault is actually with your laptop is to go to a free public wireless hotspot and see if your laptop connects to their network.If it dd, its not your Laptop but your wireless modem/router.

Edimax br6204wg wan led doesn't light up and there is no internet connection


Hi yaminmagdi,

I believe that you are trying to get connected wireless using your Edimax Router, we may need to check some settings in your Edimax regarding the wan light not lit up and could be a possible reason why there is no internet connection.

1. First we will need to find an Ethernet cable for us to be able to connect your Laptop directly to your Edimax Router for us to be able to check and change any settings needed to enable your Edimax wireless connection. also make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected to the Ethernet ports behind the Router not the WAN port then the other end goes directly to your Router.

2. Once connected directly to your router from the Laptop open IE or any Browsers on your Laptop, in the Address bar type in 192.168.2.1 then press Enter this will prompt for a user name and password, User Name will be ' admin ' and the password should be 1234 unless you changed it.

3. Inside the Edimax setting page click on the Tab that says Wireless, check and see if the wireless is enabled if not then enable it or turn it on, after enabling / turning the Route ON save the settings by clicking on Apply or Save then it will prompt that the Router is restarting it will be 30 seconds to apply once the 30 seconds is up that should be done check your Edimax if the WAN light is already lit up, then you can try an connect Wireless from your Laptop.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day.

I have an old laptop and this wireless g card do I need a router or can this work at any hotspot


If you are going to connect to someone elses WiFi service which is also known as a Hotspot you are good to go.

Once your adapter "sees" the network the only thing you need to do is connect. Some Hotspots will have open access and some will have secure access where you will have to enter an access code to connect.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Edimax Router disconnects the internet when laptop is on battery


That has nothing to do with your router.
 
Its your laptop that shuts off your wireless card every time its running on battery power.

How to change dns


I am not familiar with Edimax, personally...however, you can find out a lot of information by understanding a bit about the computer attached to it.
Assumptions:
It's a home network
You are running a Windows machine
Your windows machine is connected to the Edimax router
Your Edimax router is also your default gateway

drop to a command prompt (start, run, CMD, enter)
Type ipconfig and hit enter
This will get you your IP address of your local machine as well as the subnet mask and the default gateway.
Once you have the default gateway, you can connect to it via Internet Explorer. You will need to set it up as http://192.168.1.1 (where the IP address is your default gateway)
At that point, you will need your router password
Once you get in, you can then poke through your settings and manually change the ones you need.

Hope this helps.

Edimax Router BR-6204WG - setting as


I believe I can help.

As I understand you use your Siemens to get to Internet and you like to use another Edimax 6204 WL Router on another floor.

You don't have to change much !

First check if DHCP on your Siemens Router is ENABLED (it should be) !

- RESET your EDIMAX Router (to be sure everything is set by default)
and disconnect any LAN cables from it.
- If you are using Laptop (or desktop with WL adapter), connect it to your EDIMAX by LAN cable.

- Set (if it is not) LAN adapter IP and DNS of your Laptop/Desktop
to 'Obtain an IP address automatically'
If it was seto to some STATIC IP, after this you may need to 'REPAIR' your LAN connection
to get a new IP from your Edimax router

- Open your browser and type http://192.168.2.1
(admin + pass: 1234)

- Go to Wan port and check it. It should be set to Dynamic IP.

- Go to LAN settings and type IP address of the Edimax Router in the same Class
as Siemens Router is. (e.g. if Siemes router is 192.168.1.1 then Edimax should be 192.168.1.2)

- Change the DHCP range too, but be carefull this range should be different from DHCP range on your
Siemens router. (e.g. if Siemens router range is 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.200, then you should
set Edimax DHCP range from 192.168.1.201 to 192.168.1.250)

- Now, connect the LAN cable from one of Siemens LAN port to WAN port of your Edimax.

That's it!

Now you may change SSID, Security, Time etc. on your Edimax router, and also try to connect via your Laptop's WL adapter. (also make sure it has no static IP address)

Hope this helped.
