Just speaking from experience it doesn't even take a lightning storm for a DLink wireless router to go out. I had one blow up very similar to your situation a day or two after it was plugged. I replaced with a Linksys.

I hope you saved the reciept.

Probably fried the 10 ohm resistor in the device. Anytime you are connected to a phone line (or DSL) and there is a storm, there is the possibility that it will fry (destroy) the resistor that is put in your device as a fuse to keep from destroying the whole device and causing a fire. Unfortunately, in today's devices this is a surface mount resistor and is not replaceable by the general public. Your solution is to buy a new device OR open it up and replace the 10 ohm resistor (it will be where the large brown spot and funny smell comes from).

This is why they have phone line protection on most of the newer protective power strips. Could have prevented this from happening.

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 went through all the set up steps, but when i unhooked the ethernet cable from the router and my computer i could not connect to the internet. My computer is communicating with the router but the router...


You need ot make sure that the router WAN lights are on and its connecting to your ISP. You need ot have all the link and state lights on. The router will automatically connect to your ISP, unless someone has set the configuration to manual. You can try resetting to factory defaults and see what happens on the WAN side. You NEVER need to configure the WAN interface. You then need to reconfigure the LAN side.

No connection to internet


Hi,

To my knowledge, the last LED (on the rightmost) would light if the LinkSys WRT54G is connected and receiving signals from a modem. If this is not lit, then perhaps it is a modem issue. If on the otherhand, there is internet connection when the modem is directly connected to a PC, then the problem is the internal circuitry of the WAN port. Incidentally, you can try a reset (at the back) on the LinkSys. This of course would revert the unit back to factory default (removing all user settings/configurations).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

WAN


The wan port is what you hook your modem to. Wan stands for Wide Area Network, which in your case is the internet. Your house with your 2 pc's and networking equipment would be considered a Lan, local area network.

The 4 ports on the router are switch ports, when you hook the modem up to the switch instead of the wan port the modem will only allow traffic from one physical, (MAC) address to pass through, this is why only one of your pc's can access the internet. The wan port on the router has its own MAC address, so the modem will associate with the wan port and trust all traffic that comes from that port.

Finally, after you have connected the modem to the wan port, pull the power cord on the modem then plug it back in to reset it, this will force the modem to orient with the wan port.

No Line on US Robotics ADSL Wireless Gateway


Hi,

Initially what I suspect is that your USR's connection to your ISP is intermittent but with that of the USB modem is consistent. This is clearly an ISP issue and should be resolved by them.

One thing you can try is to verify the integrity of the line splitter that is commonly used to split the 2-wire signal to the telephone and to the modem/router. You can actually remove the splitter and connect the telephone line straight to the WAN/ADSL input of the USR 9106 Wireless Gateway and check if their is an improvement or if your ADSL and WAN IP will light up consistently.

Alternately, if your ISP is too busy to attend to your concern, you can try mimicking the USR's WAN settings to that of the USB modem's. While still using the USB (provided by your ISP) determine its WAN IP settings. This would be IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. You need to access the USB modem to get this data. Should you need detailed instructions, pls post back the make/model of the ISP provided USB modem. If you were able to gather the information. Connect your USR 9106 Wireless Gateway (Ethernet 1~4) to your PC using a LAN cable and enter its configuration page. In its WAN/ADSL settings, use the numbers gathered from the USB modem. You may need to do a full hard reset on the router (rear panel) prior to putting in the numbers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. If problem persists, pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

Problem after firmware update Edimax BR-6114Wg


Hi Fklco,

Why are you connecting the WAN,, (the internet modem cable), to the standard ports? It should have a WAN port, for the cable from the modem, and a LAN for the cables to the computer?

On the other hand, if it is working, I would leave well enough alone, :D
