Question about Edimax BR-6114Wg Router (BR6114WG)

Issues with the BR-6114WG

This happens pretty regularly (as in several times a day): The router becomes unresponsive. Lights on it still blink and it *appears* to be working and still shows up on the list of available wireless stations but no connected PCs can access the internet, each other, or the router (via its IP address). The signal strength shows as great or excellent so it's not a problem of a weak signal. Also, when it does "this" I can't successfully repair connections on my wired/wireless PCs. Unplugging the router and plugging it back in fix the problem temporarily. I've tried resetting, upgrading the firmware, downgrading the firmware, etc to no avail. I have a friend with this same router and the same problems came up after a year or so of having it.

Re: Issues with the BR-6114WG

Depending on how your router is set up, it may be a DNS problem. Start from beggining and make sure your router is enabled for wireless, wep or other encryption is off, DHCP is enabled for assigning IP addresses automatically. Run this programme on pc's, click Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Clean out your old cached and temp files. Go to your wireless adapters properties and ensure that they are set to obtain ip address automatically in TCP/IP settings. Restart systems and hopefully you are away. Every time you use windows to repair the connection it will try to re-new IP addreses, but it won't be the one your router uses, so don't use it, as you will lose connection to the router.

Linsys ea6500 blinking

If the Power or Diag LED (Light Emitting Diode) on your Linksys router is blinking, it means the firmware is corrupted. If this happens, you won't be able to do the following:
• Access the router's web-based setup page
• Assign IP addresses to computers connected to your router using its DHCP capabilities
NOTE: This also applies if your router's LED is dimly illuminated.
Listed below are the things that you can do to solve this issue:
Powercycle the router
Assign a static IP address to your computer
Ping the router
Reset the router
Update/Re-flash the firmware using the TFTP utility

You are trying to open the NAT on the router for X-box.
For this you will need to reduce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.

Problem after firmware update Edimax BR-6114Wg

Hi Fklco,

Why are you connecting the WAN,, (the internet modem cable), to the standard ports? It should have a WAN port, for the cable from the modem, and a LAN for the cables to the computer?

On the other hand, if it is working, I would leave well enough alone, :D

Random Disconnection and WLan indicator lights

Saw this on another post for this router: "in the DHCP configuration on LAN menu. the lease time was set to 72 hours (3 days) i change it to 720 hours, cos that was the most it would allow... so hopefully that would fix it. " maybe you're having the same problem. another usefull thing to do is to update the firmware from the D-link site. some stability issues such as this should be fixed by a firmware update. post what happened goo luck ;]
