Actually in short "you NEED A MODEM;"
In order to connect your router you need to connect a modem in "bridge mode'( bridge mode is nothing but a configuration on the modem)..
this is a picture of rear side of a router,,, you have to connect the modem into the wan port of the router (above),, and in port number 1,2,3,4 you can connect your computers,

In general the Wan port of the router gets connected to the ADSL modem where the computer used to connect and the computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site. If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment. Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know the Manufacturer and Model of the DSL Modem -- probably the box your computer plugs into when it is working. It would also be helpful to know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to new routers with factory default settings.
Lastly as a wild guess. There are some ISPs that extract address information (MAC Address) from the attached network card into the units they send you to attach to the phone line or cable. Should you happen to be with such a company they often state turn on the modem before the router so it recognizes the change. You may want to try turning off the modem attaching the router without power then turning on the modem wait a minute and power on the router -- if your ISP requires default settings for your router and it was new this may work. As far as the alarm for unplugged cables -- do the cables have the clip portion on the ends and are they securely established in the ports. Are the contact points on the cables free of dust and dirt? Especially if the router is used have you tried a different port for the computer side connection? In case of the computer end have you tried multiple computers -- possibly a friend's if you do not have more than one.
There is a strong likelyhood this simple solution will not work. All of the above information may lead to the determination that we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the switch to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.

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.
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.
