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 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.

How to configure edimax router BR-6104K Problem with the Edimax BR-6104K Router

Dhcp disabled


Hello,

I'm not too sure how you are trying to access the router (wired or wireless) or what operating system you are using, but you will need to manually set your IP address (through Network Properties) on the computer to 192.168.2.10 (for example) with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
If you also want internet access you will need to set the Gateway and DNS to 192.168.2.1.


Once that is set you will be able to try bring the page http://192.168.2.1 again and configure the router from there.

Once you configure the router (i assume you want to turn on DHCP again) you can set your computer back to DHCP assigned IP and DNS.

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.

Installation problem with edimax 6104kp


Hi Omdi,

Please proceed with the following instruction as follow.

1.) Connect first the modem to your pc, if you find it is working then get the IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, Primary DNS, Alternative DNS at the network properties TCP/IP.

2.) Open your router where you can configure the static IP or manually enter the IP address, subnet, gateway, primary dns, alternative dns.

3.) Make it sure you used the cable properly by connecting it to the appropriate line. For the modem to router you should connect the cable to WAN port. And the LAN port must be go through the computer.

If you still experience the problem, please let me know.


Best regards,


Philip

DNS problem


Hello, first of all where is your DNS coming from, do you use a server or is it from your ISP? If its from your ISP then add it statically, either call them or do an IPCONFIG /all form your command prompt you will see it there. Then add it...in your router under status doesn't it give you a public address and servers? anyway try that it should work...also if you use a server with DNS add that to the NIC as the first 1. Cheers!!!
