Configuring EDIMAX 6104 for Aztech 600E Router

I have several computers connected to DSL through an EDIMAX router and a modem. Till yesterday I had an Alcatel modem, and everything was fine. Today the modem was changed to Aztech 600E, and I can't configure the router properly. I know the protocol is PPPoE, and I have set all parameters correctly (I hope...), but I fail to connect to my ISP. A single computer connects with no problem through the new modem.

    Sorry, wrong model - I don't have the wireless modem, just a regular one.

  • Ofer Brandes Oct 26, 2006

    My computers identify the router. Each gets a separate 192.168.2.* address. Note that nothing has changed except for replacing the modem.

    The problem is that the router does not connect to the ISP.

    One of the computers (set apart from the others, and not connected to the router) is my "benchmark", allowing me to connect to the Internet not through the router (and write this comment...).

    OK, it turned out that:

    When the technician firt connected the Aztech modem to the DSL, he defined it as a router.

    This worked fine for a single computer, but when the Edimax router tried to connect, it failed.

    The solution was simply to reset the modem to its defaults.

    Now the modem plays the role of a modem, the router plays the role of a router, and all computers connect well.

Does your router automatically set the ip addresses for each computer, or do you have to set them up yourself? Is the computer that can connect the one that is directly connected to the modem? if it does and you asked windows to repair the connection it probably is messed up. check in the router settings to see if your pc's are on the same ip address route (e.g 192.168.x.x), but not all the same last digit; and the subnet masks are all the same (eg 255.255.255.0)

    Are you able to view your ISP's WAN IP and SUBNET MASK, PRIMARY DNS SERVER AND SECONDARY DNS SERVER, in internet settings in your router, as sometimes you have to telephone them and manually input the settings as i had to do with Onetel Telecom, but with TalkTalk I don't have to it's automatically recognised by my wireless router.

Share a PPPoE connection without modem


I think the problem is that the modem is not giving enough ip addresses. Try configuring it. Some modems are also a router. This means that it has the capability to provide more ip address so that i can connect more pc.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?


Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address - 192.168.2.1

DCHP - ON, Addresses - 192.168.2.100 and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router - 192.168.2.1, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.

ALTERNATIVE,

Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM junodr@yahoo.com or through this website.

Configuring


hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router

Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router and repeat the same steps.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username (email address format) and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, try to call supportrix

Try set the Edimax router to accept a Dynamic IP from the ISP - cause I guess they provide it to you changed everytime you disconnect.
