Siements 5890 router

I have a siemens 5890 router that just replaced an Efficient 5820 router. The WAN port on the router comes up, but the LAN port cannot be pinged from HQ.

I have the internal firewall off. I can telnet into the router's wan ip and then ping the cisco switch. I can telnet into the cisco switch and ping the router's lan ip. From the router, I can also ping workstations on the lan.

Any ideas? In the Cisco world, we overload the Ethernet port and Nat outside on the WAN port and Nat inside on the Lan port.

When you say HQ is that outside on the wan port trying to ping the Lan port?
Sometimes the router itself will respond to a ping but will not pass ping requests thru as the internal firewall can never be fully shutoff unless you are running your cisco switch as a DMZ 
also are you connecting your other pc's to the cisco or to the 5890.
Instead of shutting off the firewall completely try enabling bridge mode and give your cisco the outside IP addy.

How do i connect a wifi router to the dsl of my pc?


Your internet provider should have provided you with a modem (dsl modem) that will have a ethernet port which can be connected to a computer directly or a router to make internet available to multiple computers. Router usually comes with five ports one of them is WAN port (Wide Area Network) and other four are LAN ports (Local Area Network) The dsl modem should be connected to WAN port of your router and the LAN ports are use to connect to any computer with an ethernet cable. If the router has wireless capability you can use your laptop or smartphone to access internet wirelessly!

Trying to hook up router. What is the wan for and the 4 inputs


The WAN port is the physical interface that provides input and output to and from the device that provides Wide Area Networking capability .. i.e. the modem that connects to your Internet Service Provider. The usual choices are a DSL modem, a cable modem or a Wired router or a wired switch.
The 4 other inputs are wired inputs and outputs for wired Local Area Network connections.
The WAN port normally connects to the Internet. It is not necessary to connect anything to the WAN port to have a network. But without one of the usual devices, you will not have access to the Internet.
The LAN ports connect to the network interface port on the individual computers that are part of the local network. One port connects to one computer.
A large system will have routers connected through the LAN ports to the WAN ports on sub routers and so forth.

Dax router


The 2 wire Home Portal 100w is a Modem/Router combination with wireless. But it has only one LAN port. So I understand that you are trying to use a DAX router for extending the number or ports. The reason they may not communicate if 2wire LAN is connected to DAX WAN is both may have same IP address. If the router has similar IP on WAN and LAN, it will not communicate. For that changing DAX router's LAN IP will be a solution or you can do LAN to LAN cascading. Connect 2Wire LAN to DAX LAN and dont use the WAN port. This way you dont have to change anything in the configuration

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.

i asssume that you have connected the ethernet port of the modem to the wan port of the router. if that would be the case, yes you need to connect the computer to the lan port of the router to get internet access. that it if you want your computer to be directly connected to the router. but if you're planning to connect wirelessly, you just need to make sure that your router and computer have a wireless capability and your computer.
