Question about Edimax BR-6104 Broadband Router. One 10/100M WAN Port and 4 10/100M LAN port.

1 Answer

DNS problem Hi every1, o have one piece of edimax and 3 cpu`s. My connection is a PPPoE one, and it works fine, just that from time to time, the router doesn-t get the right DNS, it puts something close to it, put not right, and i can-t view any website, just ip-s ( like google-s : ), and it appears, ping is ok ( duh ). I know i can define a preffered dns on each NIC, but still, it would be greater to define it right on the router, and than transmit it over network. Any suggestions ? Thank you, Hataricus

    My DNS is coming from my ISP, i just talked to them and they said that the DNS that the routers gives is just an auxiliary DNS and it should work fine, i don-t have nothing to worry about :P
    And if not, they offered the sucky alternative, that i should insert manually the DNS to every NIC ( statically as u said :P )

    Thnx mate!

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 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!!!

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.
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 (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.

PPPoE over Edimax BR-6104K without a modem

I am not sure if I understand you well.

You say:
My Internet is a PPPoE broadband connection but I don't have a modem installed.

What do you mean ?
You have a Broadband/ADSL modem, but you didn't install any software for it ?
(It is probably not necessary.)

So, I assume you do have a modem. You connect your modem to the wall outlet with a telephone cable.
Then then modem is connected with LAN cable to one of your PC with two NICs, you make Internet Connection Sharing, and ten from the second NIC of that PC, you connect (again) with LAN cable, your second PC.

If it is an ADSL or Cable modem connected with LAN cable, please follow this steps.

First RESET your Edimax router and disconnect all LAN cables if connected.

Connect your PC (the one with one NIC) to one of the 4 LAN ports of your Router wit a LAN cable.

Open My Network Places and then View network connections, or go to Control Panel and open Network Connections.

Right-Click on your LAN adapter and choose Properties, then double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Set to 'Obtain IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server addres automatically' (click OK). Now you are back to the previous window. Click and check (if it is not) 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

After a fiew seconds you should get (near to the clock in the the right bottom of your desktop), a Network icon and a baloon message that your NIC is connected.

Right-click on the network icon and click STATUS, a window will open
and then click on SUPPORT tab.
You should see:
IP Addres:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:

Open your browser and type

Now login as:
admin (default)
and password is: 1234 (default)

Click on GENERAL SETUP on Top-Left, and then on WAN (on the right side) and choose
Click on 'More configuration'
Type your User Name and Password you have from your ISP.

Now Click on APLY, and again APLY !

The Router will restart in 30 Sec, and your NIC will reconnect.

Now connect your Modem to a WAN port of your Router with LAN cable. (***)

if you've typed your User Name and Password correctly in PPPoE fields,
if everything is OK with the service from your provider,

you should now be on Internet.

If not, then please check your User Name and Password with your Internet Service Provider, and ask them if they can see your router.

Now, get to the PC with two NICs.

Go to Control Pannel, and go to Network Connections.
Right-click on one of your NICs and click 'Disable'.
Check the other NIC if 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' settings are set to Obtain IP addres and DNS - Automatically, and 'Show icon notification when connected' and once again click OK.

Connect the (enabled) NIC with LAN cable to another port of your router.

The second PC should be on Internet, too.

If you (somehow) realy don't have a modem, but you have a cable only, follow the above instructions to the point (***) and connect the cable to the WAN port of your router.

That's it!

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.
