Edimax br6204wg wan led doesn't light up and there is no internet connection


Hi yaminmagdi,

I believe that you are trying to get connected wireless using your Edimax Router, we may need to check some settings in your Edimax regarding the wan light not lit up and could be a possible reason why there is no internet connection.

1. First we will need to find an Ethernet cable for us to be able to connect your Laptop directly to your Edimax Router for us to be able to check and change any settings needed to enable your Edimax wireless connection. also make sure that the Ethernet cable is connected to the Ethernet ports behind the Router not the WAN port then the other end goes directly to your Router.

2. Once connected directly to your router from the Laptop open IE or any Browsers on your Laptop, in the Address bar type in 192.168.2.1 then press Enter this will prompt for a user name and password, User Name will be ' admin ' and the password should be 1234 unless you changed it.

3. Inside the Edimax setting page click on the Tab that says Wireless, check and see if the wireless is enabled if not then enable it or turn it on, after enabling / turning the Route ON save the settings by clicking on Apply or Save then it will prompt that the Router is restarting it will be 30 seconds to apply once the 30 seconds is up that should be done check your Edimax if the WAN light is already lit up, then you can try an connect Wireless from your Laptop.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day.

I have an edimax BR6204wg wireless router. Whenever I have tried connecting wireless divices such as PS3, Nintendo DS and now my HTC smartphone they all find the Wireless network (SSID) but have trouble...


Hi sj_harley,

Welcome to Fixya. You can check the settings of the router so that we can configure your device wirelessly. There are some important information that we need to obtain inside the router that we wil be using to connect your device. The SSID or Network Name, Security: WPA,WEP,WPA2 and Open and lastly the Network Key or Passphrase.

Lets access the router:

- To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default username is admin and the password is 1234.

- Go to the Wireless, Make sure that the Wireless Module Function is Enable.

- ESSID is your Network Name (you can personalize it).

- Go to Advanced Settings, Authenticantion Type: Open (Unsecured) Shared (Secured).

- Go to Security, Select WEP or WPA then type your Password or Network Key

- Click on Apply to save the settings.

Now that we have the information needed lest configure your devices. Listed below is the guide on how to connect PS3 and DS wirelessly.

Ps3 Guide:

Steps on Connecting PS3

1. Power-cycle ALL network equipment. Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network equipment, including any Wireless Access Points, Routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) Modems, and Broadband Modems for two (2) full minutes.

2. Confirm that your internet connection is enabled. in the home menu, go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection and select Enabled.

3. Scroll down to Internet Connection Settings and When prompted, "Do you want to continue?" select Yes. On the next screen, select Wireless as your connection method. Pick "Scan"

4. From the list, pick your SSID.

5.On the next screen, press right on the directional pad to continue

6. Pick your WLAN Security Setting (either WEP or WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK). If none, pick None (and skip the next step).

7. If you selected a Security Setting, enter your Security Key or Network Key with the keyboard. Press the Start button to exit the onscreen keyboard. Press right on the directional pad to proceed to the next screen.

8. The system will check your network configuration settings and display the information. Save the Settings.

9. Test the connection on the next screen.

10. When the test is complete (usually less than a minute), it will display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully connected to your network, Congratulations, you have completed the network setup process.


DS Guide:

1. Go to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings of the Game

2. Search for an Access Point (SSID)

3. Select your Network (SSID), If you have an open network, just click "OK" and it should work just fine! If it's a Red Padlock, it'll prompt you for a Password or Network Key. This is the reson why we access the router.

4. Test the Connection


Thanks for using Fixya.

Wireless security-enabled network


That should be in your router under "wireless", and then "security" Make sure all your devices share and support the security you haver picked. In other words if you pick WPA2, you should prolly pick WPA2/mixed with TKIP/AES, ect. Dont pick WEP unless you have an older card. Its too easy to crack.

I WANT OT PUT PASWORD TO MY WIRELESS BROADBAND ROUTER SO ONE CAN ONLY OPEN OUR COMPUTER AND SELECTED PEOPLE CAN ONLY USE THE WIRELESS CONNECTION.HOW CAN THIS BE?


Log into your router by opening your web browser software, for example Internet Explorer. Type in the address field the ip address of your router. The ip address depends on the manufacturer, but it should look something like this - 192.168.1.1 . A window should appear asking you for your user name and password. If the router is set to default settings, the user name should be ADMIN and the password should be ADMIN. Hit enter. This should bring you to your routers configuration window. lynksisssid_thumb.jpgSSID screen.Go to your wireless tab / basic wireless settings. Enter a SSID (wireless network name). The SSID may be on a sticker on the router or you could make one up. Choose a wireless channel. Disable your SSID wireless broadcast. Save or apply changes.
linksyswep_thumb.jpgWEP / WPA screen.Go to your wireless tab / wireless security. Choose enable. Choose either WEP or WPA encryption, the latter is a more secure choice. Choose 64 or 128 bit encryption, again the latter is a more secure choice. Enter a passphrase and write it down so you can enter it when it is called for when installing the wireless software on your wireless computer. A hexadecimal WEP/WPA key should be generated. Save or apply changes.cheers

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.

How to set up security enabled facility


You can try these steps to configure the BR6216MG router for wireless security:

1. connect a computer to the router's numbered port.
2. launch a browser and type in 192.168.2.1, user name is admin and the password is 1234 (unless you changed it, if you do, then use that password)
3. Once you are in, click on wireless then click on Security.
4. Under Security, you can set it to either WEP or WPA. But for ease of use, I suggest you use WEP.
5. Set it to WEP then 64 bit for the key length.
6. You can then select ASCII or hex (that depends if your wireless adapter support both or one only). For hex, you can only use the letters A-F and numbers 0-9. For ascii, you can use characters, letters and numbers.
7. Set the default key. Only the key you select it in the "Default key" will take effect.
8.You can now fill the selected text box with the password that you want. Then click Apply.

If you have questions, just ask me then I'll answer your question as soon as I can.
