Edimax wirless router 6114Wg needs restart to start working

Hi, I have Edimax 6114wg wireless router for some time now, which was working perfectly. Lately I upgraded a p2p program I use, and whenever I start it, network activity stops until I restart the router, even if I stop the p2p software. More over, you can not even reach the router itself. I would expect a p2p software to have an impact on bandwidth, but it sounds really weird to have an effect on the router (like the router starts an endless loop or something). The latest firmware offered by edimax is already installed. Any ideas how to solve this?

    Hi PyroMan and thanks for your help.
    I forgot to mention, port forwarding is on (the software was working for some time).
    At the beginning I used upnp, and later I stopped it and started a manual configured port forwarding (tought there might be a bug in the router upnp causing it).

    any other idea?

    Well, I did loose power, and the router got a new IP from the ISP, the internal IP is the same though.

    Let me rephrase my problem, as I think I might have missed another detail or two...

    3-4 hours after I'm starting my p2p program I'm loosing connectivity, that is both to the internet and to the router.
    This is happening each time I'm starting the program.
    After I'm restarting the router (and closing the p2p program), everything starts working perfectly fine, till the next time I start the p2p program.
    I don't have any VPN, I've just enabled the firewall and NAT on the router, for security reasons.
    I tried using port forwarding both with upnp and on a manual configuration, the p2p works for several hours and kills the router.
    I'm using the same internal IP address to connect to the router, and even when I'm loosing connectivity, I can "get" to the router using this IP, it just takes 2 minutes to open the index page.
    Other pages on the net never return.

    If you have more questions regarding the situation, please ask.

I'm suffering the same trouble (and more similar stuff) with the same evil router! EVIL ROUTER this one!

I wish there was some firmware update or something... It's ridiculous that the connection dies so easily. Over heated? Bug? sigh... Been suffering for many many months+ now...

    Did you lose power recently? The reason I ask is if your cable/dsl modem lost power it may have assigned a diffrent IP address. You can get into your modem using the address labeled on the back of it, sometimes with VPN's or other network configurations you can loose some setting. Get back to me let me know what type of connection you are using and I can walk through the process.

My NAT type is set to strict, how do i change this?

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.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.
Router set up page is the page where you can change the settings of the router

What is the difference between wireless router and a LAN router?

You can a wireless router that does the same thing as a LAN router, but you may have a cable LAN router that doesn't host clients wirelessly.

The basic funtion of both is to correctly route network traffic for the intended recipient. The information can be from computer to computer or across intranets (normally high-end switches are used instead) or from the internet through a modem (modulator demodulator) to computers connected to the router (wirelesslor cable).
The difference being, the cable LAN router is connected by a ethernet cable and is capable of faster nominal transfer speeds and a wireless is able to transfer information across a 2.4GHz radio signal.

Don't knock the speed of the wifi, though. I quite happily stream movies from my server to my TV through a wireless connection.

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

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.

Wireless connection keeps falling

It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.

Does not bridge LAN and Wireless

ya need to check the ip add setting of acces point , as well as ssid , channel n region too. once ya log into the the routers configuration page , check that yor comp is getting the ip of same range/class from yor router, it might be liil different in the last number , no worries till then.... n assign the same ssid , region and security setting - like the secuirty key for wless to yor wless comps also. n calso check your comps are on dynamic ip settings. however if ya want to use the staic ip , then give yor comps a staic ip in the same range as yor router' range. n check the wzc service of yor windows xp or above system. it should be enable n running n should be usingthe same security key for wirless connection. or chat with me on samrat101, yahoomssgr or msn messnger samrat
