SOURCE: PPPoE over Edimax BR-6104K without a modem

HI,
  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)..

SOURCE: Problem with Local area connection

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.

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.

Associate wireless router to my home hub


If your Home Hub is a BT type internet hub, then you can connect the WAN port to the Ethernet port on the Hub.

This means it will go through two routers. One in the Hub and another in the Edimax. The Edimax needs to be configured as a bridge, because you need to keep within the same address range as the BT router. The Edimax DHCP allocation of IP addresses need to be disabled. This is not on the web site.

Setup wizard


Usually the CD only contains info about the router and is not used to set up the router. What you need is the manual so you can login to the router. Once you get in, some routers will detect first time login and start a wizard which will help with the configuration. Others you have to navagate to the wizard and start it yourself.

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.
