Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

1 Answer

Lenovo N-500 does not connect to my Edimax router

Though It does connect to other wireless networks.
It goes through the Renewing IP address stage and does not pass the Waiting for IP configuration stage.
In the diagnostics window, Lenovo (Vista home Premium) says the DHCP server on this network failed to respond to the request my system made for automatic IP address configuration.
Please help.
Thanks,

David

    Check the advance settings of the router:

    Turn the MAC filtering off
    Disable the wifi-protected setup

    Next steps
    - Check the Internet connection of the router if working properly?
    - Try to use any security to the router like WPA to secure your network.

    Then reconnect again to the network.

There is something wrong with my IP address. I


With a router , releasing and renewing is not that useful , better off hard reset your router and start from there.

Cannot renew IP address on some PCs, each day it's a different PC in my house. This started happening a couple weeks ago.


It is a router's default behavior to lock some IPs to a particular PC which are usually using it on the network. It is a leasing feature. Example, if your PC is using 192.168.0.125, and your IP range in your router is 192.168.0.100 - 255, every time you connect, though you are alone in the network and no other PCs are connected, still your router will lease 192.168.0.125 to you unless otherwise you disable this leasing feature in your router's admin interface. Renewing IP from the computer side do not alter the router's leasing policy. So right clicking on the network icon and selecting Renew IP won't help. What you need to alter is your router's IP leasing behavior.

Cannot aquire IP address through my Desktop using Lynksis Wireless Router


sounds like you need to reenter the password/key
go to network connections and disconnect from it. then try to reconnect after the refreshes.
is it asking for a password/key?

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.

Edimax wireless-g broadband router


please confirm if the router is a 6104K, or a KP or Wg or another model as the K and KP are not wireless, a "W" will denote wireless capability...

Not all manuals are available for download from the Edimax website but heres a start...

Connect the router to your PC with a cable... leave the modem disconnected to start with

open internet explorer and type in enter the default IP address 192.168.2.1 (broadband router’s IP address) into your PC’s web browser and press <enter>

This should bring up a user/password dialog box. By default the user name is "admin" and the password is "1234".

Confirm you are getting this far and we'll go the next steps
