Question about Edimax PRI-682 Router (PRI682)
Cannot connect to the Internet at all
I have found that some routers do not like text and numbers mixed in the password. After having a ton of problems I set up the wireless password to all numbers and haven't had a problem since.
Prior to that the wireless would work for a day or so and then quit. It was frustrating.
Also, when the router calls for text or hexadecimal I have found that they really don't mean text unless it is between A to F, which isn't really text but a hexadecimal number.
So, take the simple approach. Put in all 5's for your password. You can change it later if everything works, but use all 5's just to see if you can get going.
Don't read this part if you already know this.... You have to connect a computer via a hardwire ethernet cable to the router to set the password encryption. I used 192.168.200.1 as the IP address to get to the modem. Put the IP address in your browser address bar and you should come up with a screen that is addressing the modem. Select wireless security or some similar sounding menu item and then make your selections.
After you do this, and before you disconnect the ethernet cable, try to get on to the internet using the hard wired ethernet cable. That will be bypassing the wireless routines. If you can't get on via the ethernet cable direct connection, it is unlikely that you will be able to make the wireless work because there is a problem downstream from your computer -- the modem or perhaps the connection at the street.
Once done you can remove the ethernet cable from your computer. Go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS and properties and set the identical parameters WPA, etc in the properties including the all 5's password.
If you have set the wireless to connect automatically it should connect to the internet.
